Display on 890 remote is faintly lit. I have a new battery and cradle, have updated remote (firm/soft)....nothing. Remote does work, but you can't see display, so you are enabling the 'force'...

Not worth repairing, contact harmony and they will give you a coupon for 50% off a new remote. The 900 replaced the 890, although I prefer the 890 the screen is a lot better on the 900.

I have a harmony 890. it turns all the equipment on/off properly except the TV (a Vizio). this works intermittently. suggestions?

Hi. Try learning the power commands for your Vizio TV from the original remote. The power commands that the Harmony remote is using may not be correct. The following tutorial by Logitech will assist you with this.

Remote stopped working so we bought a new battery and it turned on for awhile, now it's totally dead. Could the contacts on the base be worn out so it doesn't charge?


This seems to be a common problem with the 890. In fact, Logitech have an entire page dedicated to charging problems with the 890:

This page contains a troubleshooting guide and if you are still unable to solve the problem, it lists the information you need for contacting Logitech support. Sorry, but there is too much information to paste it all here.

Hope this helps.

My 890 is no longer working correctly. It won't

I had a similar issue and only needed to "re-configue" the remote... Basically, just try plugging it back into a USB cord ( connected to your computer) and go to the original programming home page and click the "Update button." It will re-program your remote as if it was new.. Over time your Harmony may lose or forget the frequency of your various components. This happened to me. Also, make sure the remote has a full charge while you're programming it. Give it a try !

My Harmony 890 turns everything on and off, but when I am in PVR it just suddenly stopped letting me use any of the buttons (ie, menu, guide, channel, volumn). what do I do

I would hook the harmony back up to your computer and the update the remote. If that does not fix the problem then I would down load the firmware and then update your remote. If you still have problems I would check your check your buttons in the program. You can do this by logging onto your Harmony account, select the Activities tab and press on the “customize buttons” under the activity you are trying to fix. Scroll down to the menu exit info buttons and see if there assigned to the correct device and correct command. If none of this works I would see if the menu button works in another activity like Watch TV or Watch DVD.. If the menu button does not work in another activity then the remote may be broke. If it does work then I would try the original remote with your DVR and see if that works. If that works then I would manually teach the harmony remote. Harmony calls this “Learn command” It’s a button in the lower right corner while in the “customize button” tab.. If none of this works then pull out your 45 and put a hole in it.
Hope this helps

Harmony 890 just went dead. Nothing. Nada. Not

I have an 890 also. I've found that the remote doesn't always charge when it the charger. I have to put a rubber band around it and make sure it shows that the the battery symbol on the display is showing that it charging. Or the battery isn't taking a charge anymore and I'd try to replace it. Doesn't really hold a charge very long either.

Changes 2 channels at a time

I can help you with your Logitech Harmony 890 remote control.

The Logitech Harmony 890 remote control is programmed through the
Harmony Windows Setup Software.

I recommend resetting it up with your components to get rid of the two channel problem.

Once installed, you will simply run the program and select the devices you would like to control from menus. This program finds the right codes for you and loads them into your remote control.

You can get a copy of the Harmony 890 Manual by clicking here.

I hope that helps.
