Assumption: the remote did not in any way receive physical damage including any sort of moisture or liquid inside.

Aside from you replacing the battery which you already indicated, I would recommend you contact Logictech technical support.

One more thing you may want to try is to take a soft pencil eraser and make sure the three gold contacts are clean by rubbing each with the eraser to insure good contact when sitting in the charge cradle.

I bought a new battery and it is still not charging when I put it on the holder. It's a 880 Pro

Hi, this is a common issue with the Harmony 800 series. What I do, is use an elastic band to keep the remote firmly in place on the charger, so that it does not lose contact.
Hope it helps.

Harmony 880 remote won't charge

Hi. The Harmony 880's have a common problem with the charger not being able to charge the remote after a while. This is a common problem and you are certainly not alone. However, there is good news.

If the remote is still under warranty, then you can get it replaced by calling Logitech.

If it is not under warranty, you can buy a new charger by calling 1-800-231-7717. They are only USD $10.

Logitech harmony 880 won't charge

Clean the leads on both the charger and on the remote itself with rubbing alcohol.
We had this problem (it would lose connection periodically for no apparent reason, then eventually wouldn't even register that it was set down). The leads sure looked clean, but shining them up with rubbing alcohol (recommended on one of the Logitech boards) got it to start charging again.
