Zeppelin air flashing red light ? Are these known to have bad capacitors in power supply aa is the original zeppelin?

A flashing red led also signifies the device is muted. Having said that, I am guessing you must have fixed it by now. :-)

Iphone does not work with zeppelin

try the aux feed at the back - if this works then it's probably the docking arm! (check to make sure in good order!),
has the unit been ugraded?(some ipods need upgraded software!)
have you tried another ipod? (as the pin interface on yours could be faulty!)

are there any flashing lights, does the ipod charge in situ, if it does not, then look at the docking arm.

sorry cannot be more specific but have little to work on.

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.

I have used my Zeppelin with my iphone3s and ipod touch without any problem for more than a year. Lately I have been receiving a continously flashing red light when I plug my Ipod Touch and dont receive...

don't be mislead, the red flashing light is the power supply and you need to send it back for repair and have the modified board fitted. once this is resolved they should check for any other failures, but until this is changed, things will never improve.

I suddenly got a buzzing sound from my BW zeppelin speakers when a was docking my ipod touch. i also tried my Iphone and the same thing happened,

this could be the amp board or the power suplly board, the power board can cause buzzing before the red light flash failure, just contact b and w service or the place of purchase and they should arrange repair.

My zeppelin is flashing red light! can't play anything! help!

You will need to check with another IPOD, if the condition still exists then it is an electrical fault with the Zeppelin itself and will need to be repaired. Contact
