The aux may work ok, but the issue is the power supply board. contact supplier or b and w service and they should repair the unit.

My zeppelin has stopped playing altogether, ipod works fine, but no sound ... yes i have turned it up!

if the aux input at the rear works, then the fault relates to the docking arm or the interface on the back. (Does the ipod charge on the docking arm, have you tried another type of ipod, as different ipods have different connections through the arm!)

if the aux input does not work, then the main board/amp/pse could be an issue.

if the model is more than six months old it will probable have the known problem boards, so contact b and w servie and they should check it out.

My Apple Iphone doesn't work with my B&W Zeppelin (There's no compatibility). How can i do? Thank you Luana from Italy

1) have you the latest software on your zepplin?
2) does the unit work with any other ipod? if it does then it may be your unit.
if it does not, check aux mode, if ok on aux, then it could be a docking arm problem.
3) does the light (led) go blue when the i phone is in the docking arm, if not, then again it looks like the docking arm.

if the red light flashes when putting the iphone in, then the unit has the problem power supply, so contact your supplier or b and w service.

hope this helps.

first try to upgrade the unit, if still the same then check if the aux is ok, if aux is ok, then it points at the docking arm, if the aux is not ok, then it relayes to either the power supply of the main interface board, they would check the power supply at b and w as this is a known problem, then following that they should check to see if anything else is wrong. contact your point of sale or b and w service.

My zeppelin speaker is not connecting properly to my itouch. When docked, my Itouch plays music, but no sound from speaker & the remote will not operate my itouch. (it used to work fine).

if it charges, and there is no red flashing light, probably the board that feeds the arm, or the arm itelf, as different ipods have different connections. if the aux feed words it is the arm.
