I had the same problem so I pulled my remote apart. The remote has two types of switches - little button mechanical switches and surface contact switches. The activities button is a mechanical button switch that has a small domed piece of metal that goes over concentric rings on the circuit board. this is all under a sticky white piece of insulating sheet. I carefully pulled up the white sheet and cleaned the contacts on the board and on the circuit board. I put it all back to gether and the switch now works fine. Very delicate work but that is the only way to fix the problem.

SOURCE: activities button won't work

Have you tried the "help" button? That usually rights anything wrong with the unit, by itself.

If not, connect it to a PC, and let it re-program itself.

My Bose remote turns on and off withthe comcast remote but the volume does not work unless I hitthe AUX button first. Does not work with the all button pushed.


Since multiple devices have volume controls you must inform the remote which device's volume you are changing. Just like the Power button. You wouldn't want everything in the room reacting to a generic command.

Only comes on when touching the actual power button, not working when pushing the PS button on the controllers. When on, there's no menu, just the wavy blue background, after a few minutes, it says it...


Ironically this happened to me just the other day. What I ended up doing was a complete reset/format. You will lose some data so I hope you have a back up.

Press and hold the power button until the light on the playstation goes red again.
Let off the power button and press again, hold it until you hear two fast beeps.
Once you hear the beeps release the button.
Plug your controller in via the USB cable.
It will now bring you to a recovery menu.

It will give you these options:

  • estart System:
    • Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

  • Restore Default Settings:
    • Reset all system settings back to default.

  • Restore File System:
    • Checks for corrupt/missing system files.

  • Rebuild Database:
    • Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.

  • Restore PS3 System:
    • Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.

  • System Update:
    • Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
You CAN try restore file system but since you said it froze, it probably won't work again...but you can give it a shot. It didn't work for me. What I ended up having to do was "Restore PS3 System". This will format everything and start from scratch.

Also, another quick fix that you can try would be to pop open the ps3 hard drive case, remove the drive and plug it back in to ensure that it's properly seated.

If none of these work you may have a dead hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I need a remote for my ewr20v4 combo recorder


most universal remotes will work may
i would also suggest buying a really nice universal remote from logitec its called the harmony it runs about 30 bucks for the 420 model with an lcd screen. from amazon.com it allows you to connect to your pc to install all the codes for all your devices by just telling the software what tv dvd player etc you have. and unlike most universal remotes it will control everything at once nolonger needing to hit the tv button to change channels and home theater or dvd button to turn on movies and change volume also lets u set up other activities where if you want to watch a movie it will turn on the dvd player, home theater system and tv to the right inputs same thing with gaming and everything different activities one press of the button and everything is set up. also it has a nice on screen lcd with a help built in that will allow you to fix a problem if u accidentally set up a setting wrong via the pc it will fix it and store it in memmory

please let me know if this solves your problem.

How to reset an ps3 controller ? ive done da resset button thing but it dont work


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

Good luck.

We can change activities using the remote, but we cannot change the channels or do volume control.


hey there,

I think I know what your issue could be. Have you customized your remote's buttons for those Activities? look at your customized buttons list for your Activities to make sure that your commands are placed with the right button if you know what I mean. There is an option in their software for that. The other thing I was told that works is to learn the commands from your original remotes. I guess if the commands do not work with the regular learning then you can do something called learn in raw..I am not sure how to get to it off the top of my head though...

I hope that has helped you

Everything works except no picture of tv


The Television may be out of synchronization with your remote or may be configured incorrectly.

1. In front of your Television, press the Help button on your Harmony Remote.
2. Answer No when asked "Did that fix the problem?"
3. The Harmony will then ask, one by one, if all of your required devices powered on when the Activity was started. Answer Yes or No until all required devices are powered on.
4. Answer No if the remote asks if the TV is set to the correct input needed for the Activity. In this example Input 4 is used, though this may vary from your setup. If the TV switches to another input but no picture is seen, continue answering No until an image appears.
5. If you now have a picture on your TV screen, answer Yes when asked if the problem is now fixed. Your television was simply out of synchronization with your Harmony One and should now work correctly. Please try switching between your other Activities to see if they switch correctly. If this has not fixed the problem, proceed to the next section Confirming your Activity Settings.

To confirm your Activity Settings, please follow the steps below:

1. Launch the Logitech Harmony Remote software and login to your account.
2. Click on the Activities tab on your home page
3. Click on the Settings button for the Activity you wish to troubleshoot.
4. Select Review the settings for this Activity and click on the Next button.
5. Confirm the input chosen for your television is correct. Select No, I want to run the setup wizard again to change these settings and click on the Next button.
6. Click on the Next button through the Activity setup screens until you arrive at the screen asking the question "What input or channel does your ... TV need to be on? From the list, select the input that the TV uses for this Activity. Once finished, click on the Next button.

**NOTE: It is recommended to perform these steps for all Activities that use the television.

8. Click on the Done button on the Set Up Activities: Summary page.
9. Click on the Done button on the "Select the Activity settings you would like to modify" screen.
10. When you have finished, click Done to save your changes.
11. Click on the Update Remote button to update your remote.

How do you change the activities on the remote logitech harmony 520 when i set up the remote everything went smoothly, but i would like to change the order of the activities and it wont let me?


Yes it will. Go log in to the Logitech program software and there, at the upper left is a button that simply reads, "Reorder Activities"

Click that button, reorder to your heart's content and update your remote.
