I have the inMotion (not plus) and the right speakers don't work. I can hear the right channel through the headphone out port. Using the aux in gives the same result. Taking the unit apart, it's hard to remove the circuit board for the amp to get to the speaker wires. It's also hard to open the speakers themselves as that part seems to be glued. I suppose it could be the speaker wire at the hinge point. But I'd hate to cut wire before I try a smarter approach. Any ideas?
I had the same problem. When I took the unit apart several tiny pieces of plastic fell out- it looks like the hinges inside had chipped and were allowing the upper speaker section to sag and pinch the wires. Once I reconnected the wires it was fine.
After taking the unit apart, I found that the speaker wire had broken, at the point where it passes through the hinge. Although the wire is reinforced with plastic in this area, wiggling the wire showed that the break was there. I removed the coating and found that both wires were broken. That was it. No problem.

Check the pins on the speaker and on the plugin on the iPod, that's the problem usually. Also, check if the iPod is truly compatible, even if it worked before it may not be. I have seen car chargers for say a 2G iPhone work for a bit then say incompatible, it happens. Here are the compatible iPods for the iM310:
You will want to use a 1/8" to 1/8" Stereo patch cable similar to this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3612891 Just plug it into the headphones jack on your laptop then plug the other end into the jack on the back of your im310.
I've found a solution. Most likely you have broken the catch inside this part so it needs replacing but don't worry, it's relatively easy to do. The latch is the black piece of plastic behind the door with a claw sticking out. 1. First, email the manufacturer and and ask for a sample latch to be sent out to you. After a bit of research I finally found them. In the UK they make them in white so I ordered one of those as I think it looks better (part #DL1WH): http://www.richco-inc.com/component/jumi/search-parts.html?searchinit=true&searchtype=rohs&interest=DL-1&Submit3=Submit 2. Get a pair of thin pliers and carefully pull out the old latch. To do this pull on on any part of the outer rim. I used the lower edge. Don't worry of you damage it. You'll be throwing it away anyway. Just don't damage any of your speakers. 3. Slide the new latch into position and push into place. 4. That's it. All fixed!
