    Mine communicates with the remote up to 3%, hangs there forever. Will not update for use, firmware is updated. My 550 works fine, I have no idea what is going on. Called Logitech, they messed around for about an hour and a half and then I gave up. Any help is appreciated.

Call Harmony support. I have the same thing with Harmony 670 and they said it is a hardware error. No fix that I have been able to find. If it is under warranty they will replace it. If not, I don't know what it would cost to repair.

Can't setup my remote. Harmony One Logitech.


To set up the Harmony remote controls, you need to connect the remote to a computer with the Windows OS or Mac OSX using the USB cable that came with the remote. You also need to create an account using the Harmony Remote software - the account is at myharmony.com . It looks like the Windows software and website work with Internet Explorer with the Silverlight plug-in. (Newer Harmony remotes use an app that shouldn't be browser and plug-in specific.)

The manual and software for the Harmony One is available here: http://support.logitech.com/en_us/product/harmony-one-advanced-universal-remote/getting-started# . https://support.myharmony.com/en-us/download also has a link to download the Harmony Remote software for the older Harmony remotes.

If you are still having problems, first check if Operating system found the device when you plugged it in. (With Windows, go to the Device Manager and check if the driver was installed. Look under Human Interface Devices.) If Windows Update is set to automatically install hardware when it is plugged in, this should happen automatically. Check if an update is pending. If the remote wasn't recognized, try a new USB cable with the correct connection. You may also find this site, https://support.myharmony.com/en-us/harmony-isnt-being-detected-by-the-computer , helpful to diagnose the problem.

I hope this helps. I've assumed that the battery in the remote are fully charged. If the unit isn't charging, you may need to replace the battery or the remote. Amazon does list a replacement lithium ion battery for the Harmony One. There are a couple of choices depending on when the remote was manufactured.

Take the back off and clean the under side of the button with switch cleaner fluid. DO NOT USE WD40.

The Logitech website is here. They can fix it for you or help you with the programming, but I doubt on and off will be an optional setting.
