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!

My Altec Lansing IM3 no longer works with the AC power adapter but does in battery mode. Does that mean I need a new power adapter or could the circuitry on the iM3 be faulty? I play this with my iPod.

The power adapter could be bad BUT also the jack it plugs into may be bad. It will have a switch to disconnect the battery when adapter is plugged in.

You need to get a voltmeter and check the output of the adapter. OFTEN the cable beaks where it flexes. Sometimes the cable can be spliced, but DO be careful to not reverse the wires.

Cannot hear sound when connected to ipod

These photos might help but I haven't tried it yet

My guess is its the docking connector - try pulling the ipod forward a a bit and see if that helps produce any sound. Look on these other threads for other discussions about that.

5th generation iPods hose up while using Altec Lansing IM600

Yes, the docking station is damaging the iPod. The vibration when used load is causing damage to the iPod. If you notice, the iPod will only freeze when it is playing load in the docking station. To avoid the problem, you'll need to play the music at a lower sound with less vibration. Once I began to play my music at more reasonable sound levels, I discontinued the problem. Very disappointing solution...but it is the answer. I too called Altec Lansing. They are not aware of this issue...I told them to search the internet - it's all out there.

No power to speakers

Lol, sounds like that iPod sucked the power out of your house. Just kidding. If it is plugged into a wall outlet, make sure that the conections are not bent or warped in any way (remeber this stuff is very fragile so look for the smallest stuff). If it is plugged into one of those multi outlet devils, make sure that is not too clogged up. For those I always use the Male Bathroom Ediquate rule, never stand (nor plug) next to a guy in another urinal.
