Question about B&W Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin iPod Music Speaker System

1 Answer

My Zeppelin speakers are not working. I just get a flashing red light on the speaker and no reaction. I recently bought an i phone and had to change my wireles settings. Do you think that I have to sync my ipod to the new settings? I have noticed in the menu on the i pod many the music is mainly set on OFF and whenI have tried switching them to ON and then clicked on Reset, they revert back to OFF! Could this indicate the problem is with the i pod settings and not the Zeppelin?

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.

Recently, when I take the ipod off the Zeppelin, I hear this strange sound, not a hum, but higher in pitch, from the speakers, and when the blue light starts flashing like it's in standby the sound warbles...

there are issues relating to the older models, until the power supply board ahs been replaced and the unit tested, it is hard to say, b and w are fixing units because of the known problems, so check with their service desk.

My B&W Zeppelin wont play. The normal red stand by light is flashing, and the remote control won't work, despite trying new batteries

the red light flash relates to a fault on the power supply board, until they fix that, which is a known problem, it will not work, contact your retailer or b and w service if you have not already done so.

I am having the same problem which was being back discussed back in January by rogerbell2 in relation to the Zeppelin making a low rumbling noise. This has been going on intermittently for several months....

the rumbling would relate to component failure, and when the red light flashes the power board failure has kicked in, these are known problems with current models in all but the very latest, there are twoboards which tend to be replaces, so just contact retailer or b and w and they should fix it with no bother.
