Assuming that you are getting audio out, either the led or the board feeding it is playing up. contact point of sale.

My b&w zepellin is hasn't been working with my ipod touch and now all I am getting is a steady blue light and no sound or anything. Do u know the problem

when you connect your ipod, if your ipod charges, then there is a connection on the arm, if it does not charge, then there is a fault on the docking arm, and /or the connection to it. try the auzx input at the back, if that works, then the docking arm is the possible cause, if not, then it could be the interface feeds to the amp board. becuae there are known issues with these untis on all but the latest z2's, suggest you contact b and w service, they should upgrade the power supply board, if it has not been done already, and also check out your unit and repair from there.

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.

When I connect my ipod touch to my zeppelin there is a loud electrical interference coming from the zeppelin. It is less pronounced with an iphone and not there at all with an ipod touch. I have tried...

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.

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.

My zeppelin makes no sound

from your description it is hard to diagnose. the red flaing ligh it the power board, no light could be the power board or the inteface board. if the light stays red and does not go blue when ipod docked, could be the are. contact b and w service if you have not already.

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.
