Remove silver side trim via 4 hex screws. The button strip and bezel assembly then easily lifts away. Unplug the connector on the right end to completely free the bezel.

Slowly and carefully pry front grill off by using a tiny jeweler's screwdriver, starting from the corners, and working your way around the sides and top (where trim and bezel will hide any plastic and grill gouging). It takes patience, gentleness, and lots of time to do it without damaging anything that will be seen. Eventually you can use a long flat blade to pry under the grill along the bottom, and where it wraps around iPod dock.

Use a very small jeweler's flat blade to pry out the 10 screw plugs that were under the grill. There's probably no way to get these out without gouging them, but the damage will be less obvious once the grill is back on. I even think it looks better to not have replaced the plugs.

Remove the 10 phillips head screws that were under the grill screw plugs, and also the 4 screws that were hidden by the bezel. Note that the two screws close to the LCD display are longer than all the others.

You do not need to remove the two screws that hold the back battery cover, in order to open the main unit.

Pry the two case halves apart with your fingers, held from the edges that were hidden by the silver side trim. There are various connectors and their adhesive dampening goo that will keep the case from completely separating.

To allow the two case halves to open more, hinging from the top collection of wires, it's helpful to release the iPod dock from the front half of the case. First, make sure the iPod dock is unlatched and in the out position. Note the two plastic pins on the sides of the dock carriage, that float around and are actually part of the latching mechanism as they run in the slots on the back half of the case. These pins can be pushed in so they are flush with the dock carriage's sides, allowing the carriage to slide out through the front of the unit. Just make sure they are swung out of the way of the slots on the front of the unit, or you won't be able to keep them pressed-in flush as they make their way through the front of the case.

    I'm trying to use this info on the Altec Lansing inMotion Max Multimedia 2.0 channel, on which the screws are hidden under thin double-sided sticky foam. Have located eight screws plus the four across the top and cannot open the back. Any ideas?

"...
Important Note: iPods released since Sept 2008 (e.g. Touch 2nd Gen, 4th Gen iPod Nano and iPod Classic 120 Gigabyte, iPhone 3g and onwards) have an updated dock connector that means older revisions of speaker dock may not be able to charge these newer models of iPod/iPhone. Older docks should play music from these newer models with no problem.
The problem with charging is due to Apple removing support for 12v (firewire) charging on these new models of iPod/iPhone. Only 5v (USB) charging is supported on these new models. ..."

Open IM600 docking station to look inside player


YPMDesign is correct, but to get further into the im600 you have to peel off the cover that masks the LCD (it has Altec Lansing printed on it). Once done, it exposes 2 screws, and when removed you can pull open the whole thing, exposing the main circuitry. There is nothing that can be reseated though, as all appears soldered. There is one main board, which everything connects to, then the PCB at the bottom of the system, which has the power buttton and ipod dock connector etc. Unfortunately I have been unale to resolve my problem, where the Power buttton LED lights briefly if the battery is removed and reconnected, but getting nothing on the main display, and the power button is not responding at all when depressed. Mine is sadly bin bound..
