My Zeppelin won't respond at all despite a "soft" reset. The standby light is flashing, and it registers the iPod...but no sounds...any help? Brgds jf


1) if the light is flashing red then the problems is with the power supply.
2) if blue, when you say it registers the ipod, is it just charging or does the zepplin remote control show any communication to your ipod. (or does it just show that it is charging?)
3) try the rear input to see if that works, if it does, this would point to either your ipod or the docking arm.

if this is a z0/z1 or early z2 model, contact point of sale or b and w service as their are known issues with these models, (if you have not sent it back before, if you have sent it backbefore there should be a two year warranty on the product!)

hope this helps.

Whenever docked with ipod, the steady blue light on Zeppelin switched to the troublesome blinking red light. Does tis mean someting wrong with the contact/dock on zeppelin? How can we solve this problem?...


the red flashing light refers to the power supply board, either contact b and w service or point of sale to arrange return and repair. there is a mod for these power supply unit!
once this has been fixed they should check to make sure there are no other problems before returning, hope this helps.

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.

Zeppelin Ipod station When I switch the docking station on the red light flashes intermitently. When it does eventually switch on and I play the ipod, there appears to be some interference sound.


the red flasing and the interference relates to the power supply unit, this is common and known to b and w. if you have not contacted the service desk or the supplier, suggest you do so to get the problem resolved.

The zeppelin no longer plays 2 ipods, it flashes a blue light when pressing play but no music.


the flashing blue light normally indicates the ipod is on pause. if the unit is not on pause, the problem could be the arm or the interface board, they power suppy could also be the old type, so suggest you contact b and w service if you have not already. (if there is an issue, ask them if your serial number has the updated or the problematic power supply unit!)
