Friend you must review your warranty, if it is covered by the warranty period you may exercise your right within the warranty agreement. Some warranty agreement specifies that a unit may be replaceable withiin warranty period and with some conditions. If you have met the conditions then your item can be replaceable.
I hope this would help you.

How can I disassemble a Radial I-pod docking station. The connector is broken, I have the bottom section removed, but I cannot find the hidden screws/compartment.My guess is they are under the metal mesh.

hiya, i just had the same problem, where as my ipod dock connector didnt work, so i took it to the shop where i bought it and they said it wasnt repairable,, not taking this as an answer i went over to a mates house who is a lecky and asked him to repair it,,, we then come onto the snag of not being able to open it to get to the fault to solve this we got a bit mad at it and accidently dropped it on the floor :P where the 2 mesh panels came off showing over 20 new screws yes i said 20!!!! all that was holding the mesh was a lot!!!!! of glue..... after we took the many screws out we found out the reason why the shop said it wasnt repairable.... the manufacturer has put loads and loads of glue on everything stopping anyone from removing any of the connectors... we spent a good hour trying to remove the silly amount of glue but to no avail...
So if i was you i would bin it and get a new one...

JBL Radial Remote Doesn't Work

Unfortunately, this is a fairly common problem with many small consumer electronics. The way that the devices are manufactured, there is an IR receiver that is soldered onto the PCB inside the unit. Sometimes this circuitry fails. There aren't any options on the Radial that would turn the option the remote off. Your best bet is that if the unit is still within the return period of the store you purchased it at, to return if. If it is outside of the return policy, I would give JBL consumer line a call to get the unit serviced, or get a replacement. Good Luck!

How to open the jbl radial micro speaker set?

Bit late! Just remove the four rubber feet underneath (self adhesive). Take out the four philips screws. It's a bit of a mess inside - you'll have to remove the connectors and some screws to get to the i-pod connector. You dont need to remove the button pcbs just the main board. The i-pod connector pcb is on the end of the grey ribbon cable connected to the main board (the button end of the unit).

You should check and see if the headphone jack is broke or not. That sometimes accounts for the reason why sound won't come out.
