[28 September 2020] I recently
acquired one of these, a Logik
MI1006 iPod docking system with
built-in FM radio. I received it
because it's faulty: The display
flashes and nothing more.
looked online and found that
others have the same issue and
the advice is to replace the 12V
3.5A power lead. I decided this
wasn't preferable for me due to
the cost of a replacement vs.
the value of the system.
Someone else on the forums had
an issue with something in their
system coming loose and rattling
around inside. They wondered how
to dismantle the system to
would be my process:
system is screwed together by 8
Philips-head screws inserted
from the front, but the front is
then covered with the single
piece mesh grill that is held on
doesn't seem possible to remove
the grill without spoiling it; I
tried to use a heatgun to soften
the adhesive with no luck.
Therefore I would recommend
piercing the grill to undo the 8
screws. The system will then
come apart. Once work inside is
complete the 8 holes can be
covered over with self-adhesive
circular 'covers' of approx.
10mm in diameter. The end result
should look neat enough.
locate the 8 screw holes beneath
the grill, you should be able to
do this by pressing in the
relevant locations as indicated
by the diagram below.
next step is to pierce the grill
in these locations and push the
screwdriver through to reach the

These systems are fairly modular
inside meaning there is the possibility of repair, modification or
the utilisation of parts.
I have no use for an iPod docking
station but it may be possible to utilise the amplifier and
speakers on their own by adding in a method of controlling the
output and using an existing 3.5mm socket for input. The FM radio
circuitry seems fairly independent also, although manual operation
of the tuner would surely need to be added to separate this from
the front controls.
