That is a tough one. Is your iPod fully seated -- will it play music in the im600? Have you tried a different iPod in the im600 to see if it charges? Does your iPod recharge normally in other players, in a wall charger and your computer? If not, your iPod could possibly need a new battery.
Also: since it was unplugged for 3 weeks, you may just need to run the im600 through a full cycle or two (let the FM radio play until the battery is dead, with no iPod in it), then recharge the im600 for 5 or 6 hours, and THEN mount your iPod into it and see if it charges it. Be sure to unplug/plug-in the adapter into the im600 to ensure it is getting full power from the wall outlet. One last thing: the im600 will only charge the iPod when it is plugged into AC power; it won't charge the iPod while it's running on its own battery power. Good luck!
There is a button on the front of the unit that is just below the LCD readout that shows FM / iPod status. Press the button. If it does not open the unit, you may need to tap the back of the unit when doing this or else get something to gently pry open the unfolding section WHILE THE BUTTON IS PRESSED (otherwise you'll break the mechanism and won't be able to lock it again. It sounds like whatever you put in to create the connection may be jamming up your opening.
The unit comes with several adapters for different iPod models, you may want to try a different adapter; you shouldn't need to put anything else in it to maintain a connection. If you don't have those adapters anymore, you can probably get them off the altec lansing web site.

First of all, did you fully charge the battery using the A/C adapter before initial use? If your ipod does not fit with any of the attachments correctly, try just placing it on the dock without the attachment & it should connect fine just be sure it's connecting to the dock properly. I have the ipodnano 2nd generation & the attachments don't work, but it fits on the dock well without the attachments & works great!
here is what I recommend, and It may be irrelevant but it could work.
the ac adapter cable may be creating interference with the radio signal, so what you can do is go ahead and try connecting the ac adapter as far away as possible from the device in a way that the( keep the cable as far away from the device, just leaving the plug into the hole)
and try putting some antistatic tape onto the end that goes into the device.
