Remote stopped working after cleaning

Hi. Try the following:

1. Remove the battery, press and hold the 'OFF' button, and re-insert the battery. The screen will display 'Safe Mode!', or the 'Activities' button will be lit.
2. Connect your remote to the computer.

3. Launch the Harmony Remote Software, and log in.

4. Click "Downloads" at the top and click "Firmware".

5. The remote will go through the firmware update.

6. Select "Yes", and click NEXT to update the remote.

Now, point your remote at a digital camera or cell phone cam, and press some buttons. The end of the remote should light up, indicating that an IR command is being sent. Did the LED light up?

If not, then I'm afraid you may have damaged the IR sender in the remote.
Hope that helps!

Harmony 890 remote has solid blue screen

Try putting the remote in 'safe mode' before doing the firmware update. I can't think of anything else you can try, but 'safe mode' --> Firmware update often does the trick. Here's how:

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!

Marantz RC 3200

If you only let the LCD screen stay on a max of 60 seconds, the batteries will last longer. No the software update will not resolve the battery issue... only thing that will is 2 sets of rechargable batteries and changing the screen on time.

Personally I avoid these remotes like the plauge too many issues and it doesn't work for most all devices like a $7 GE universal remote will... but heck it sure does look COOL!

Intermittently Working Correctly with DirecTv

Update your Harmony remote control software on your PC to the latest. Go into the TV device settings. The software should recognize if there is an update to your TV's IR commands. Try the same things with the DVR.

It's also possible the TV and/or DVR are locking up due to IR commands that are being sent too quickly. The remote has a setting for the delay between commands sent to the same device as well as the delay between commands sent to different devices. Try adjusting these settings:
  1. In the Harmony remote software on your PC, click the "Devices" tab.
  2. For the "TV" device, click the "Settings" button.
  3. Click the dot next to "Adjust the delays" and click Next.
  4. Adjust the "Inter-key" and "Inter-device" delays to something higher and click Next.
  5. Follow the steps to save the changes.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for your DVR device as well.
