Question about Logitech Harmony 1000 LCD Touchscreen Remote Control
HARMONY 1000 IS 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,

SOURCE: my harmony is stuck in safe mode
I had the same issue this morning so my apologies for the delay in answering you. After numerous delays and frustrations in being unable to "update" my remote i did the following. First, remove all batteries and disconnect remote from the USB cable. Check ALL buttons to ensure that none are stuck in the down position. I found that my SELECT/OK button was stuck in the "on" position. Continue to check all buttons to make sure all test fine. After doing this hold down the "Off" button while connecting the USB cable, still no batteries in the unit at this time. Hold the "Off" button down for at least 10 seconds or until the units Testing is completed. If the Harmony remote software is up, perform the Update Remote step still sans batteries. After it completes it may perform a self test again (mine did) and after it completes then insert the batteries back into the unit. Hope this helps.

To get out of safe mode, do a firmware update from your PC. This will install the latest firmware and your configuration. Safe mode is a bootstrap designed to recover from firmware corruption issues so about the only thing it knows how to do is reload firmware.
However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.
1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.
