Wrong Power Supply

 On Feb. 6 2009 I bougth an iM310 in USA. But instead of using the 5.0 V Altec Lansing switching power supply, my daughter used an Altec Lansing switching power supply for the iM600 which is 13.0 V (they both have the same plug in, so was easy to get confused ) now it does not work not with batteries either , now we are in Chile, South America and I was told that there is not service available for Altec Lansing here although the iM310 is sold here .
Any ideas what to do??

If it doesn't work with batteries or the supplied power supply than your speakers are fried. Sorry for the bad news.

Most likely has protection of some type so as to not fry the whole unit. Open it up and look for fried diodes where the positive power lead go's to the circuitry. Locate and replace diodes.

When I plug in my Ipod to the inMotion im310 portable speaker the Ipod screen says it is not supported, and it worked this morning.


Check the pins on the speaker and on the plugin on the iPod, that's the problem usually. Also, check if the iPod is truly compatible, even if it worked before it may not be. I have seen car chargers for say a 2G iPhone work for a bit then say incompatible, it happens. Here are the compatible iPods for the iM310:

Plays and charges
iPod mini;
iPod nano 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G;
iPod classic 3G, 4G, 5G, 5.5G, 6G;
iPod touch 1G, 2G

Good luck!

Power cord makes a chirping sound and won't supply power to M602. Do I need to buy a new power cord and if so where?


My experience is that when AC adapters start making strange sounds, they're no longer usable (or at least reliable), and need to be replaced.

I'd suggest calling Altec Lansing to see where you can get a replacement power supply.

My im310 smokes and smells, I get no sound. Repair or replace?


Replace, the cost of repairing something made in china is usually greater than buying a new one. I would just get a new one with fresh warranty.

You will want to use a 1/8" to 1/8" Stereo patch cable similar to this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3612891 Just plug it into the headphones jack on your laptop then plug the other end into the jack on the back of your im310.
