The way those remotes are put together it might be hard to safely take it apart, the buttons are usually in a mat and what happens is just a little liquid gets inside and under the mat on the etched board where in your case the vol up is---its not making contact anymore.

Here's a link to a tip I posted some time ago but it has photos and may be helpful for you.

SOURCE: logitech harmony 890 display is blank

this sounds like it is a hardware issue, try contacting Logitech through e-mail from the website www.logitech.com and sending an e-mail in.

try the following before contacting them:
1. Log into the Logitech Harmony Remote Software on your computer
2. Click on the Downloads button at the top-right corner of your screen
3. Click on the Firmware button. Follow the onscreen instructions to upgrade the firmware on your Harmony remote
4. Once the firmware upgrade is complete, click on the Update Remote button
5. Test your remote.
If this doesnt work, provide them with the following to make sure the process goes as smooth as possible:

The PID of the remote:
The P/N of the remote:
The PID of the RF Wireless Extender:
The P/N of the RF Wireless Extender:
Full Name:
Phone number:
Street:
City/Town:
Country:
Zip/Postal Code:

Please Note: The PID (Product Identification) and P/N (Part Number) for the remote can be found either on the underside of the battery cover, or at the bottom of the battery compartment (the battery might be covering it). Your PID number is a character code with a combination of letters and numbers, starting with either WL, WD, or LZ

SOURCE: my remote is about 4 yrs old and some of the

There seems to be an issue with the Harmony 880/890 where, after a time, certain buttons that are used more often become unresponsive (though 4 years is not a bad run!) They either need to be pressed very firmly (and sometimes held down for a few seconds), or they stop working entirely. This is probably due to the wearing out of the metallic bubble button that is beneath the film adhesive of the circuit board. If this has happened, the repair can be tricky. In most cases if only one or two buttons are the problem, you may want to try the 're-mapping' strategy as described below. Remember, the beauty of this remote is that you can create 'soft' keys using the LCD screen and re-map almost any key you like. Here is a link to a good post on the Logitech forum which describes how to test the buttons and re-map them. Good Luck!

SOURCE: last row of buttons on my harmony 880 remote not working.

Buttons like Clear or Enter may not always be 'active' depending on the activity that is currently enabled. For example, the fast forward button will appear not to work if you are just watching TV. Buttons are only mapped if they are used in a particular activity. That said, one would think that the 0 button should be available all the time, at least if there is a TV involved, so let's look at this. First, did the behavior of your remote change or have you just started using the remote? If this is an initital setup, ensure that you have selected the correct model numbers for your devices and that your setup configuration is correct in the Logitech software. Many problems have been resolved by going back to the software configuration and making sure that all of the devices and mappings are correct. Assuming the programming is correct and things were working properly at one time and no longer are then you need to determine if the issue is a physical problem with the button activation (key presses are not making contact), or a software problem (corrupted programming). So here are some things to look for:

When you press a key, do you see the 'transmit wave' icon appear at the top of the LCD screen? If so, then the remote is registering the key press. This means that the physical operation of the button is ok, so in this case, your issue is probably firmware/software related. You should update the remote's firmware and then re-load your settings. Both of these procedures are done using the Logitech software. If, after doing a refresh of your firmware/software, there is still a problem, you can try mapping some of the hard keys to 'soft' keys on the LCD screen. So, instead of using the "Guide" button, you have a "Guide" option on the screen. The link below will explain the process for re-mapping button functions.

Logitech harmony 650 remote doesn't work with old Roku player


I have an old Roku and was able to get the harmony 650 to recognise it. The model of my old Roku was SD since I originally used it on my analog TV. Everything seems to work without having to "teach" the Harmony. The only quirk was having to use the Exit button to go back to a Netflix movie description and again to go back to the channel list.

If the buttons used to work then yeah it sounds like a hardware issue. You can go ahead and take the remote apart, but I don't think you will be able to fix it, unless you are good at soldering. Cleaning the contacts alone won't help. This same thing happened to the most used buttons on my Harmony One, and I just assigned the commands to the screen, so I could continue using the remote without those buttons.
If you want to try assigning the buttons to the screen, the steps in this article by Logitech will help:

Do a firmware update again in safemode. Press and hold the "off" button, and then plug it into the computer, and continue with the firmware update. If this doesn't work, I'd call technical support.

Hi! Transmitting doesn't mean it's working, What you should do to test it is use a good quality universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony and first program the preset code for your receiver into the Universal Remote. If that works, you know your OEM remote has gone bad, at least for those buttons. If it doesn't then you you should attempt to have your Universal Remote "learn" the IR signals from your receiver's remote If the controls still don't work, there is a problem with either your IR receiver on your receiver or the the circuitry that proceesses the signals into commands. Good Luck!

When i went into the Harmony software, your TV did come up. If these codes aren't working try a different model Samsung (like UN46D6000). All new Samsungs use the same code set. If this still doesn't help, go to "Devices"->"Settings"->"Adjust Inputs"->"Method 3". Follow the directions from there. Something else that may help is Samsung calls it the "Source" button, Logitech calls it "Input x".

Volume not working. can it be repaired


Unfortunatly, Logitech does not provide repair services for Harmony remotes.

Did you try mapping the command to another button? Or you can create a soft button on the LCD screen for the volume.

My volume won't increase on my LCD tv. What can I


I can help you reprogram your Logitech Harmony 520 remote for your LCD TV.

The Logitech Harmony 520 remote control is programmed through the Harmony Setup Software you can download from here.

Once installed, you will simply run the software, and select the devices you would like to control from menus. The software finds the right codes for you and loads them into your remote control.

I hope that helps.
