We want to turn OFF the sound made by the key on the remote whenever it is used to change channels. Help! It beeps, and is very annoying.

The best way to address this issue is to uninstall and re-install the software and drivers. If you still have problems try deactiving any bluetooth aplications that are running on your PC or laptop. More information about your OS is probably needed. Contact info@totalcontrolremotes.com / www.totalcontrolremotes.com - they specialize in programming Universal Remote Control such as the MX-900, MX-3000, MX-5000, MX-6000, and many others and can offer advice.

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Why won't MX 900 turn on even after putting in new batteries


The obvious question here is: are the batteries installed the correct way? Here is a web page to download the operator manual:

http://www.universalremote.com/pdf/MX-900OwnerManual.pdf

Also; are your batteries good? are they making good contact? Has the remote been damaged by leaking batteries? Inspect and test.

Do you have the original remote controls for the devices you are trying to control? If so... do they work? Remember... they will need batteries too!

Are there manual switches on the device you want to control? Do they work? Can you turn it on and off?

We are moving through a process to identify which items work, which are good and which are faulty.

Harmony 880 remote wont conect with computer


A communication problem can be caused by a variety of issues, both hardware and software related, so this can be difficult to debug. First, make sure that you have the latest software installed and that the installation is successful. Next, make sure that the USB cable and the USB port on your computer are good. Try to upload some pictures from a digital camera, etc. They generally use the same kind of cable. If the software is ok and the USB cable/port is ok, it's time to turn off any virus software, firewalls, etc. Now you should try to connect. If the software still does not detect the remote, you can try putting the remote into 'safe mode' and then try establishing a connection to upgrade the remote's firmware. Here's how you do that:

Launch the Logitech Remote software on your computer and click on "Downloads" (on the top menu bar). Then, take the battery out of your remote and at the same time you connect the USB cable to your remote (it should be already connected on the computer end) press and hold down the Off button at the top of the remote. This will put the remote in "safe mode". Continue to hold down the Off button until you see the message "safe mode requested" on the remote's screen and the screen starts blinking. Release the Off button. Now, go back to your computer and click on "Firmware". If the software is able to communicate with the remote, an update to the remote's firmware should be executed. If this step is successful, you will be prompted to update your remote with your personal configuration (your device and activity profile). I hope this works out for you!

My harmony 1000 remote is not recognized by my mac computer


I had the same problem today on PC with the Harmony 1000. I noticed on the USB cable that mine came with it had a warning red icon (!). 1. install software then 2. plug in USB...

I didn't see this and I installed my software whilst the device was in the charging cradle with the USB cable plugged into my PC.

Before the software was installed I noticed the USB icon next to the Help on the remote screen, this dissappeared when the software finished installing the software and drivers.

I removed the remote from the cradle, pulled the battery out, unplugged the USB from the remote and computer, restarted my PC, powered on the remote, started the software on the PC and then plugged the USB into the remote and then the PC.. it was then recognized.

Harmony 520 trouble updating


A. try a new USB cable. These can sometimes be the source of the connection trouble. If that does not work, then...
B. try removing your batteries and letting the remote sit for a few days with no source of power to clear any residual memory. Reinstall fresh batteries and try again. If that doesn't work...
C. try using a USB port on the back of the computer that is directly connected to the motherboard. Sometimes that helps.

I forget how to connect my targus presenter to the usb device. What sequence do I push the connect buttons?


To Reconnect the Device and the Receiver :

Position the Power Switch to “Presenter” mode to turn on the presenter.

1 This presenter is a plug and play device and should work once the USB receiver is connected to and recognised by the computer. If the device is not working or you have recently replaced the batteries, you can try to reset the ID code between the receiver and the remote. To do this, do the following:
2 Once the computer has recognised the device. Press the
connection button on the receiver.
3. After the connection button is pressed on the receiver, press the
connection button on the back side of the presenter.
The devices are paired and ready to use.


Or check from page 5 on the USER GUIDE

Can't connect to usb port


Hi all! I had the exact same problem - the remote recognized the USB connection but my computer (MacBook with Leopard) / Logitech software did not.  I took the advice of  bfuzcsvxvgk  and it worked like a charm.  I wasn't sure what the "Home" folder that he or she referred was, so instead I entered "Logitech" into the Spotlight finder and the Logitech folder came up.  There was only one file (usblancognac.cmd) in the folder and I deleted it. After that I reopened the Harmony Remote software and it opened! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  Hope this helps if you are having problems!

Can't program mx-700 remote


Hello there,

I just had the same issue and solved it- its pretty easy as it turns out. check out
http://www.universalremote.com/resources/pdfs/MX600manual.pdf

This is the previous model owners manual but it works. You'll want to program using the "learn" mode where you point the remotes at each other.
