Question about Altec Lansing inMotion Plus Portable Audio for iPod (INMOTIONIPOD)

Open Question

My Altec Lansing inMotion iM3c has stopped charging my iPods. The power supply is providing power, but not to the unit. The power connector has power to it. I think the switch is bad. How can I open the unit to get to the switch?

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: inmotion speeker dock wont charge new ipod touch

This is because you are using different generations.

If the dock was only meant for 1st generation, then itwill only charge 1st generation. It's how they make their money.

SOURCE: My Altec Lansing Inmotion used

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!

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.

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.

If it doesn't work with batteries or the supplied power supply than your speakers are fried. Sorry for the bad news.

My inMotion will work with batteries installed but not with the Ipod charger connected to the speakers via the ipod cable. But do not know if the batteries will run down.
