Question about Altec Lansing inMotion Plus Portable Audio for iPod (INMOTIONIPOD)

2 Answers

Right speakers don't work

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.

As they would be the people most familiar with the gear, they'sd be the people to ask. http://www.music-group.com/support/behringer/askquestion

If your docking station has an AUX IN port, connect the iPod from the headphone on the iPod to the AUX IN port on the docking station using an audio cable.

Can't get headphones to work on this unit


Aux-in jack is used to play another device such as an Ipod or other sources through your Jensen player, using it as some sort of an amplifier. Look for another port on your Jensen player that says "audio out" or "Spkr" (means speakers) to plug in her headphones. If you can't find any of these ports then you might have purchased a n actual boom box, which does not have the capability to play through headphones, sorry about that.

Right speaker terminal not working - tested out both speakers and they work fine when independently tested on the left speaker terminal. Sony MHC GX45 Shelf System, 2 speakers and 1 sub.


If the sound is also dead on that channel on a pair of headphones. Then you have probably lost the main power amp for that channel. To be certain. With you headphones on, slide or turn the balance control so you can only hear the faulty channel. With some music playing turn up the volume. If you can hear "faintly" music playing then the pre-amp is OK and the power amp has gone.
The power amp will be located on a heat sink. It will consist of 4 transistors (2 for each channel) or one big device (or two) (an IC). If it is transistors you only need to replace the two for the right channel.

All I can say is that when I press the pfl button on any fader to listen trough my headphones on the main mix I hear a flicker but only from the main mix. from the sub out it is clear and even from the aux...


Check that the noise is NOT a funtion of an "effect" that the MAIN runs through. Do you hear it via the main amps or is it just in the headphones from the main? Pressing a PFL for a channel should bring ONLY that channel into the headphones UNLESS other PFL's are down... and NOT affect the main. Something is not clear here.

How can I get headphones to work with my Symphonic WF203 TV?


This set doesn't have a headphone jack, nor does it have RCA audio output jacks. Without one or the other, you're out of luck connecting headphones to this TV.

I remember a product some years ago that allowed adding headphones using a small microphone placed in front of the speaker. This was hooked to a little amplifier that ran the headphones so the volume could be independently controlled. It was marketed as a way to let "hearing-impaired" family members listen to TV shows without needing to make it uncomfortably loud for others. I haven't looked, but something similar might still be available. It's cumbersome, though, and needs power, plus maybe being costly if you find one.

It's possible to add a headphone jack, but you need to know how to do electronic soldering. Find a spot on the case where you can make a hole and mount a headphone jack, then wire it to the speakers. If you want the headphones to cut off the speakers when plugged in, you need a switching jack, and the speaker wires need to be cut and connected to the correct terminals. The switch built into the jack then disconnects the speakers when the headphone plug is in. If you don't need to turn off the speakers it's a little easier. You just need to wire from the jack to the speaker terminals. I've added jacks on quite a few sets. If you don't feel up to it and don't know anyone who is, you can see if a TV shop (if there are any left in your area!) would do it. (The shop I used to work for charged about $20, including the jack, but that was over 10 years ago now.)

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Iam using a lenovo notebook 3000 g430


the problem could either be the port or your headphones. try to check if your headphones are working on a different computer; if they are, try hooking a set of external speakers on the audio port of your g430. if you don't hear any sound from the external speakers, then the problem is with the port itself. check if your computer is within warranty; if it is, contact lenovo technical support

Connecting earplugs to the computer


The two ports on the front are they by any chance on your CD drive? If so those used to be implemented way back when '98 was released. They aren't used quite as much anymore. If you look on the back of your computer though there should be two or more colored round ports:
  • Pastel pink: Microphone 1/8" stereo (TRS) Minijack
  • Pastel green: Speaker 1/8" stereo (TRS) Minijack
These are included on most computers and should follow a color code if not have a small image shown next to the port. In this case, you want to plug in your ear buds in the "Pastel green" port. If your using Windows XP your computer should recognize this change and allow you to hear instantly from those earbuds. Windows Vista on the other hand doesn't hop over if it has a known working audio device already in use, in that case you must

Step 1: Locate your task pane in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Step 2: Playback options (I believe)
Step 3: Under "Playback" select your headphones from the list.
Step 4: Right click it and click "Set as default device"

Hi I have a Altec Lansing InMotion iM9 Stereo for my ipod and it comes with a port for an ipod in the back, i assumed that it would play my computer audio threw it but does nothing. What should i do?


This may be obvious, but have you plugged your computer audio output into another speaker to make sure it works? You have to make sure you turn the iM9 volume up as well as the volume on your PC audio. The AUX input "mixes" with iPod audio, so you can leave the iPod in the dock, however, you should turn it off when playing music through the AUX port.
