Safe Mode is a diagnostic tool in the Remote used for troubleshooting purposes. If the words "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode Requested" appear on the remote, complete the following steps:

1. Ensure the Remote is in "Safe Mode Requested" by taking out the batteries, and disconnecting the remote from the USB cable.
2. Hold down the Off button and plug the remote into the USB.
3. Continue holding down the Off button for another 10 seconds. The remote should then display the words "Safe Mode Requested".
4. With the unit in "Safe Mode Requested", re-install the firmware by clicking Support on your home page.
5. Click Firmware in the Downloads section and follow the online instructions to upgrade the firmware.
6. Once the firmware upgrade is complete, click Update My Remote.
7. Insert new batteries into the remote.

NOTE: Ensure the new batteries are all the same brand.

Harmony 1000 in safe mode?


The harmony remotes have a built in safe mode, similar to a Windows XP computer. Usually you enter the safe mode on the harmony remotes by taking the battery out, then pressing the power off button and holding while putting the battery in. If you continue to press the power off button, the remote will display safe mode on the screen.

If you are not doing the above procedure and you are still getting the safe mode on the display of the remote, I would try to update the firmware on the remote. And if you have an RF Extender, update the firmware on it at the same time.

Hope this helps,
