Please check that you are using a genuine apple USB cable to charge your iPad " some third party USB cables contain an identification inside them which identify them as a 'charge and power' cable, which can disable the line-out from the iPad so that you cannot get music to play back through the iPad dock - only the headphone socket on the iPad
Make sure that the iPod / iPhone is firmly connected to the dock by removing the iPod / iPhone and re-connecting. Check that the correct sound source button on your remote control has been selected (in this case iPod) and that the volume setting is turned up via the docking station remote control and iPod / iPhone and that the iPod / iPhone is not in the "paused" state. Also check that any additional casing / cover has been removed prior to connection as these may hinder good connectivity.
If you still have the same issue then try a system "reset" by removing the power to the dock, leave for one minute then switch back on and re-connect as above.
The battery stops charging when it is full. Leaving it connected won't charge it any more. It is perfectly OK to leave it connected so that it can charge overnight, for example.

There could be many reasons why the remote control does not work.
Have you removed the plastic battery isolation insert from the battery compartment before using the remote control?
Infrared (IR) remote controls use light to transmit signal information, they require line of sight to operate the destination device, so remember to point the remote at the receiver lens on the front of the dock.
Depending on usage, the battery may have "low power" and will require replacing from time to time, replace with the correct type and note the polarity of battery when removing and replacing, (when disposing of old batteries, it is important to observe the recycling laws in your country).
Check battery connectivity by sliding the battery compartment out and then back in so that the compartment is fully inserted and secure.
At present, the new style dock adaptor for iPhone 5 compatibility with your Bayan is only available from Apple.
As a temporary measure, you can connect the iPhone 5 using the 3.5mm (Aux/ Tablet) inputs on the rear of the Bayan dock via a 3.5mm auxiliary cable.
