Question about Logitech Harmony 880 LCD Remote Control

1 Answer

Remote needs ABSOLUTE DIRECT Line of sight

My Harmony 880 remote's battery was taken out by a 3-year-old child, and my remote would not work, obviously. I did not realize the battery was taken out after i had it on the charger for a day, took it off, and did not have a charge. Now, the remote will only work if it has a line of sight that is at a certain angle, and the button is clicked multiple times directly at the device. It is extremely awkward and annoying. Before this, the device could be pointed at the wall and it would still work. What I am wondering is if the batteries being taken out and charged without batteries could have fried some IR transmitters. Would it require a hardware replacement?

This is the data about the remote and software:
Logitech Harmony Remote Software version: 7.5.0 Hardware version: Board 1.8.0 (0x01:0x49) Firmware version: 4.4 It would be nice to know.

    I placed my Logitech Harmony 880 remote on the charger for a day and it did not charge. I then shifted it a little so it made good contact with the charging base. Now my remote will not work unless pointed directly at the device and any button need be pressed multiple times for this to work. I updated the remote's software with an update as well as reprogrammed my devices as the Logitech software stated there were updated settings for my old devices. However, none of this solved my problem.

If the battery was out for that long, it's likely that the remote lost its programming.  Did you try reattaching it to the website after the battery had recharged, so that the programming could be restored?

My 880 will not charge I used this 2 years ago and it worked The remote still holds the old settings I now want yo use it but the unit said battery low recharge. I tried to charge it but it would not...


There is a trick with these remotes. Take a tiny piece of paper and
wedge it in between the battery and the side of the battery compartment
opposite the battery contacts when you insert battery.
This will apply more pressure between battery contacts and remote.
Now your harmony should properly charge up overnight.
Had the same problem with mine and the paper trick fixed it.
Was even able to use the old battery again.
Has something to do with the three contacts on the battery.
All 3 need to make good contact.

Harmony 880 universal remote re-charging problem


I took the rubber feet off(4) from the underside of the cradle - removed the four screws and separated the top half of the cradle from the bottom. This exposes the two long thin charging arms and points All one piece). I then took some doubled sided tape, similar to what you use to put up temporary 3m picture hooks and cut four small pieces about 1/8th in square. Join two of the pieces back to back to make one piece (double original thickness), then raise one of the long charging arms gently and place the piece of double sided tape under the head of the arm (ie under the very end where the rounded point is, that sticks though the cradle when reassembled (there are two of these). Do this to the other arm.

Why - by inserting the doublesided tape you permanently raise the arms without bending them - ie they will now stay in that position and not bend out of shape, losing contact again . With the cradle reassembled, put the remote back in the cradle you will have more direct contact with the two charging pins. FIXED!!!!!!!! Good luck1
