AC adapter not charging system

I have my Altec Lansing in motion IM600 plugged in with the AC adapter but when I turn it on the low battery light starts blinking and after a minute it shuts down completely. What is wrong and how do I fix it? I've had this system a few years and this problem just started.

Check with multimeter on Volts DC if there is any voltage on Adapter pin, if there is no voltage then you need new adapter

The low battery light may be indicating that the battery needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Remote Control Altec Lansing IM600 - Battery

Turn the remote upside down. At the bottom, there is a slot that opens the battery tray and a series of grooves that are part of a clip that releases the tray. Insert the fingernail of your thumb into the grooves and the fingernail of your index finger into the slot. Ease the grooves (clip) toward the middle of the remote and slide the tray out. There is a ridge in the tray that matches the battery only when the battery is in the proper position. Slide the tray back in. If the remote doesn't work, you've probably inserted the battery in the wrong position.

SOURCE: Altec Lansing will not charge

I have had a similar problem, where the battery LED lights up, then shuts off, but I could not 'power-on' the unit using the on/off button on the front. I measured the battery voltage, and was reading 4V, so that appeared ok, as says 3.7V on its label, However, even with the battery removed, the i600 would still not power on using either its integrated button, or by using the remote control.
I plugged the battery back in, and all is ok!
The battery is accessed by removing just two screws with a cross head, and pulling its cover off. Soi appears that simply removing the battery from its connection, and plugging it in again has cured the prob?
Give it a go, if you haven't already? My unit has been solid/robust/reliable and gets a lot of use and travel, and was gutted that it could need completely replacing.

SOURCE: I shipped my Altec Lansing IM600 in a box within a

I could not open mine either, very frustrating. I finally jammed some screwdrivers in and pried it open, with considerable effort. The front and back are connected, open simultaneously. The only latch I see is front and center. My suggestion is you get something razor thin and stick in straight through the front center (directly below the LCD display)... that might undo the latch and release the door.

SOURCE: how do I open the altec lansing inMotion im600? I

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.

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!

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.

Dock wont charge


1 the connection of portable devices, just may not be working, or it could be loose( try pushing it all the way, until it doesn't go down).

2 and if that, doesn't work. Then try finding another AC adapter that has the same energy output.
(when you look at the paper that is posted on the front of the ac adapter, you can two sections INPUT and OUTPUT) try finding another adapter that has the same OUTPUT numbers and plug it into the device.

3 Lastly. If the device is not new, then the battery may be dead, and it won't charge anymore.


try steps 1 to 3 and see if any of those solve your problem.

good day

Poor FM reception with Altec Lansing IM600 when using ac adapter


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.
