Ouch. Sorry to hear it man.
Sorry to be over-obvious, but you've pulled the battery and made sure it's seated properly already?

Does it do anything when you hit the power button?

Have you tried to plug it into your computer?

Well that was fast!
Glad they hooked you up right away.
Lynx's can be a little quirky, but are generally pretty solid units.

Have you tried putting some putty around it and using it with other bricks to make a wall? Is it a really good brick or just an imitation brick?

(joking. sorry for your radio loss. glad you are getting a new one and a free transfer.)

yeah i cant find the cord to plug it into the computer and try that but i assume its dead
the onyxez they sent is good,very basic but very good sound,just really a radio for the kitchen
so i have a lynx car kit i never used cuz i was always afraid to put it that radio in the extreme cold.
and a home kit used if anyone needs it,i would be willing to give it to some one
actually i checked the radio i did the first swap i did for the lynx with and it still works fine
so i cant complain got that in the car

If you don't get any takers, TSS might buy the docks and whatever else you've got.

If my Lynx goes, I'm going with something simpler like a Starmate 8.
I still like the plug and play, and I don't use half of the features that the Lynx has anyway.
