    My battery also won't hold a charge. This unit is a little over 2 years old. Any way to get a new battery?

    I have posted a link to a site where you can purchase a new battery below.

    I have the same problem mine is 2 and a half years old, but I think it's the charger as opposed to the battery, as it won't even power for any length of time with the AC adapter connected. Will find out tomorrow when I can grab another to confirm.

The battery is probably dead, as it's rated for 400 cycles. When you have the dock's feet out, you can see 2 tiny screws on the back of the unit, unscrew them, remove the hatch and you'll have your battery exposed. 3.7V 1800mAh Li-Ion

I agree that it sounds like the battery is likely dead. Here is a site that provides quality replacement batteries for the iM600 speaker dock:

My Altec Lansing Inmotion used to charge my Ipod Touch, but since yesterdag (after not using it for 3 weeks) it won't charge my Ipod anymore. The Altec charges itself, but somehow the Ipod doesn't. It is...


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!

Battery


The new battery goes in the back of the Altec Lansing imt702. Remove the two screws on the lower back of the unit. The battery is connected via a clip connector. Simply press on the raised end of the clip, and pull off the other end of the connector. The battery is a Lithium-Ion 18650, 3.7V, at least 1800mAh. If you can get a battery with a higher-rated mAh, this will give you longer run times. It might be difficult to find a matching power connector on end of a new battery though. The unit will still run with the battery removed, but of course, will not power without the AC adapter connected to a wall outlet. If your unit has problems, continuously asking to Reset itself, or display+buttons flash (with volume increasing +1 for each blink), this indicates a charging problem. The battery needs to be replaced or removed immediately. You can reset the power manually by holding down the metal clip at the back of the unit for a minute, or just closing the leg/stand to see if this works. To reset unit's factory settings: hold down power & radio << channel buttons for 7 secs, press Power when asked to Reset?, Region=1 for US stations, & press Power again to set Region. Note that the battery is being drained even if the unit is off, so keep the AC connected; completely draining a well-used Li-Ion battery may shorten the rest of its battery life. Remove the battery from the unit if not in use for long periods.

IM600 rechargeable battery does not charge


The only time I can think of when such a problem would occur is when the battery is completely knackered, in which case, you'll need a new battery. There are instructions for the replacement of batteries in the manual, so all you'll need is a new battery.

Unit will not keep a charge even while plug is in outlet unit shuts down


If you have access to a multmeter - verify (carefully!!) that power is going to the unit at the tip of the power cable. I'd warranty return it if you can.

My IM600 won't power up.


Did you accidentally get the unit wet? I've been touching the power and volume buttons with wet fingers, and my unit just died. Also found a bit of a sticky residue on the pin inside the power connector on the back. I believe the button design allows for water to leak in, resulting in a short circuit.

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 ipod nano 2nd generation & the attachments don't work, but it fits on the dock well without the attachments & works great!

No power, broke my ipod


I experienced similar problems with my unit. I fixed my iPod by simply resetting it (hold on, hold off, hold the menu and centre button for about 5 secs.) My im600 seems to have some problems with the power button, but if I use the remote of just keep pressing the button till it powers on, I have no problems.
