Re: Logitech Harmony 880 LCD / TV screen ''check signal...
This is a configuration problem. My guess is that when you set up the "Watch TV" Activity, the input source was not properly selected. Remember, you should almost never need to control devices separately,(as you would with a typical remote). In fact, the only time you need to specifically control a device would be a situation where you need to access a little-used function that was not programmed as part of an 'activity'. Sometimes, you may need to control a device to tweak an activity that did not start correctly, but apart from these situations, you will almost always be concerned with starting "Activities". This is very different from your typical universal remote! Instead of operating 'devices' like your TV, cable box or DVD, you configure and select "Activities" that automatically control the devices that are used during that activity. So, go back into the Logitech software and make sure that your Watch TV activity is selecting the appropriate input. If everything is setup correctly, and you still are unable to go to the correct input, you may need to adjust some of your delay settings, especially the Power-on Delay. Power on delay is the amount of time it takes for the device to turn on and start accepting IR commands. On most electronics when you first turn them on if you hit other buttons too quickly the device will not respond to them. This delay helps to keep that from happening. Hope this helps!

well..that's an issue..most of these small device folks have no strategy for this sort of thing..only suggestion is find one that's been blown internally, disassemble it, and swap the screens. welcome to the new disposable electronic strategy
Sometimes the LCD screen fails on the 880/890 series. But, there are a few tricks you can try that have brought the LCD back to life.
Some LCD problems have been solved by updating the remote's firmware while the remote has been placed in 'safe mode'. To do this, 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. Now, since your screen is not behaving properly, you may or may not see this message, but after about 5 seconds you can 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. This has solved many a 'blue screen of death' problem. Good luck!
I saw these posts recently and decided I would try and figure out the time on my Harmony 880.
First, using your Logitech Harmony remote software, version 7.5.0, log on using your login ID and password.
Next, select the remote settings tab, and go to display settings. Select time/display format and check the 24 hour format. (Note: the assumption is that you have already set the 12 hour time before hand, even though is says A.M.) I made this change to my own remote when it was actually was 7:30 P.M. My remote actually reported 7:30 A.M. at this point. Save your changes online and plug in your remote to your USB port and let the Harmony update your change. Now your remote should be in 24 hour format.
Finally, log back on using the same procedure above only this time, click the check box for 12 hour format, save your changes and update your Harmony 880 one last time. Your finished, your remote should now be displaying the correct time in 12 hour format.
Unfortunately, there is no solution for this issue. The remote control sends out an infrared signal, which can be picked up as far as 40' away from the device. And to make things worse, the signal will reflect off any surface such as glass, mirrors, or even brightly painted walls.
The only way to solve the problem is to block the path of the beam to the other room. This may require closing a door or drawing heavy drapes closed.
