Question about Altec Lansing inMotion iM414 Docking Station

1 Answer

Docking Station Will not start

I cannot turn the docking station on anymore. I tried changing batteries checked the plug, etc. When I press the Power button, it will not start, even if I hold it down for several seconds. The charger is working, since the icon on the Zune itself indicates it is charging.
Will not start on either the batteries and/or the charger. It is like the power button no longer works. Unit is aproximately 9-months old.

    My unit is over the one year warranty period. Altec Lansing basically said "tough s---" They couldn't even offer a repair. So trash it and find somewhere else to dock your Zune...annoying!

How do i tune my radio in on my Bush docking station ?

Probably the docking station has either a single push button labeled 'Source/Input' that you press on to change the audio source from 'iPod' to 'Radio/FM' to 'AUX' (the latter only if there is a 'AUX IN' jack on the docking station) or 2 or 3 separate source/input push buttons labeled as above ('AUX' may or may not be there).

Wont charge my iphone

The adapter off the docking station can be faulty and so that must be checked for working voltage.
If there is voltage on the adapter then the socking station charging section can be faulty.
The failure of the regulator IC in the docking station cannot be ruled out. You will need to remove the docking station after making sure there is no voltage to the docking section to the phone.

Bose Sound Dock remote control - only volume works

My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.
If you've found a solution, please post it here.

Bose sound dock - no sound comes through it but my ipod works with the ear plugs so it's not my ipod

I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.

I had the same problem but with a different TEAC docking product.
My TEAC would not recognize my ipod therefore I was unable to control my ipod via the docking station remote control.
Plug your ipod into the docking station and power down (reboot) your ipod. Once the ipod powers down (in the dock) restart the ipod (yes, while in the dock).

Bose docking statoin

They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.
