Question about Logitech Harmony 890 LCD Remote Control

Open Question

How Do I add a Lutron Dimmer to a Harmony activity and have the remote turn OFF the lights when I press the "ON" button for an activity?

When I press on, it turns the lights to the brightest setting. I added a setting to then turn the lights off but it only turns them off after I it turns the lights all the way up. How do I get it to not turn the lights up?

SOURCE: Harmony remote stays illuminated after turning - kills batteries

The new firmware that you can download and install automatically when you're hooked up to your computer to do programming has an option that changes the time on for the "glow."

Perhaps updating your firmware and then managing the remote will produce a change that will then have the glow turning off.

Did you try updating the remote through the desktop software? Something might be wrong with the firmware that an update could fix.

1- Remove the battery from the Harmony Remote for 10 seconds and insert it back in, and test the remote to see if the screen is displayed properly. If this does not fix the issue, please proceed with the following steps.
2- Make sure you have the latest Logitech Harmony Software (version 7.6.0) installed on your computer.
3- Connect your Harmony Remote to the computer. Run the Logitech Harmony Remote software on the computer and Login to your account.
4- Click on the "Downloads" button at the top and select "Firmware"
5- Remote will go through the firmware update, which will put the Harmony Remote back to Factory Default with the most updated firmware. Then software will ask you to select "Yes" to update the remote and click on "Next" to do a remote update, which will take the information on your account with your Devices and Activities and bring them into the Harmony Remote.
6- If this Firmware Update process does not fix the LCD screen issue, try doing a Firmware Update in "Safe Mode". To do this; remove the battery from the remote, press and hold the "Off" button on the top of the Harmony Remote and insert the battery back in to the Harmony Remote. Screen will display "Safe Mode" and then please follow the steps 3 through 5 again.

Lutron Dimmer: 'IN' does not always equal "ON"


These are probably three-way switches being used as two-way. If so, then the switches will have three terminals, but only use two. Just switch one of your wires to the other terminal. If the light will not light, that was the wrong wire. Don't mess with it without turning off the breaker! Good luck.

Linhdang2918i dont know what to press to turn on english subtitles with my logitech harmony 600


Hi.

Controlling subtitles with the Logitec Harmony Remote Control is exactly the same as controlling any other action. You just need to set up the Harmony to send the correct command/s, as follows..

- First it depends what 'Device' (AV component) puts the subtitles onto the screen, so you need to check the instructions for that device.
e.g. if that device is a TV, then check the TV's original instructions to find out what menu item is involved, or what button sets the English subtitles.

- Next, if the example above applies, look through the Harmony 600's Device page for the TV and see if you can identify the corresponding control buttons. If they are not present already, then teach the commands to the 600's 'Device' buttons for the TV, using the TV's original remote.

- Finally look in the Activities 'Customize Buttons' page to make sure that some buttons are configured to send the commands you need. If they aren't, or if they are not available, then program those instructions into the 'additional commands' for the relevant Activity/Activities.

If several button presses are needed then you could possibly even 'Add a Sequence', in the relevant 'Activity/s' page/s to do the job, and call it something like 'EsubSeq'

I have an older Lutron system - the Maestro Wireless MRF-VCTX-WH. I can't find instructions to reconnect one dimmer. The only instructions online that I can find are for the Pico, and that process doesn't...


Hard a hard time finding it too. Found an old instruction sheet lying around:

Step 1) Turn the Dimmer On

Step 2a) Press & hold the Dimmer's tap button. LEDs will blink one at a time, from the bottom up to the top. After approximately 8-seconds, the LEDs will start to cylce slowly from top to bottom (setup mode). CONTINUE to hold the tap button and go to step 2b.

Step 2b) Press and hold the "ON" button on the Wireless Controller (MRF-VCTX).

Step 2c) Once the dimmer learns the wireless controller, the LEDs on the dimmer will cycle quickly from top to bottom. Release the dimmer's tap button to exit set-up mode, and release the wireless controller's on button.

Repeat steps 1-2c for each additional dimmer.

Good luck!

Ok i installed the Maestro IR on a switch that runs a celing fan with a light on it. i turned the power back on in the room and the light was flickering and the fan was unresponsive. please help!!


Lutron Maestro IR shows several model numbers:

You posted under MIR600 single pole digital fade dimmer for incandescent and halogen.
Installation manual:

If this is not your dimmer, then add a comment with exact model number so I can read that manual and look for trouble spots.

The manual does not say 'Fan'
It appears this dimmer is for incandescent and Halogen lights.

These in-wall devices stop working and need to be replaced from time to time.
There are no repair parts.
Generally dimmers don't last as long as ordinary light switch, because they are electronic instead of mechanical.

Lutron makes the widest selection of dimmers.
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/Pages/DimmersSwitches.aspx

Use link above to identify dimmer.
For example Skylark dimmer.

Then google search for a replacement.
For example: single pole 600 watt lutron skylark dimmer
Or: 3-way 600 watt skylark dimmer
Lutron also makes 1800 watt dimmers for larger loads.

The on-off switch for the dimmer is "loose" and does not turn the light on anymore.


There are no repair parts for in-wall electrical devices.
When they go dad you buy another.
Lowes and Home Depot carry inexpensive dimmers.
Look for 3 things:
1) Wattage: most off-the-shelf dimmers are 500-1000Watts. Add up total wattage.
2) If you are dimming incandescent bulbs, dimmer package will say tungsten or incandescent.
Package will say florescent if dimmer also works for florescent bulbs.
3) If dimmer is 3-way, with a dimmer on either end of a room, many times the dimmers are sold as a package of 2 dimmers with 1 dimmer that controls the other dimmer.

Lutron dimmers throught the house, lights go high brightness to low all by themselves, is this just a bad dimmer?


I have spent considerable time on the Lutron site past couple days looking at their dimmers.

Lutron has a lot of dimmer varieties. The basic breakdown is 600Watt and 1000Watt. But different dimmers control different types of lighting.
Here is the long list of Lutron dimmer manuals:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch


I cannot find a specific troubleshoot manual for Lutron dimmers
So I suggest 4 things:
1) Feel the dimmer switch for heat >>> if it is getting hot (not warm), then that dimmer is dangerous, so remove dimmer immediately, add up your total bulb wattage to make sure you're below the 600 or 1000 watt capacity of you model dimmer
2) Look at the list of manuals shown at link, and make sure your dimmer matches the type of bulb you are using. Your dimmer model number and wattage should be printed on side or back of dimmer.
3) These dimmers use electronics to control the lights. Electronics go bad. The higher the wattage controlled by your dimmer, the more heat, and the shorter the dimmer life.
4) Short in the wires. Replace your dimmer with one from Home Depot and see if the condition persists. If it does, then a short is probably somewhere in that circuit. Troubleshooting a short is another long answer that needs more wiring detail ... please repost if you have a short.

Can I reprogram channel 783 to channel 003


Well unfortunately, the Harmony 520 doesnt support favorite channels (I dont think). However, you can certainly set this up as a sequence.


1. In the software, click 'Customize Buttons' next to the icon for your Watch TV Activity.
2. Click 'Add Sequence'
3. Name your sequence 'CBS' and add the commands '7', '8', and '3'.
4. Save the sequence.
5. In the button customization for the number '3' button (or any button you want), select 'Sequence' as the deivce name and 'CBS'.
4. Save, and update the remote.

If you used the '3' button, then now in your Watch TV Activity, is you press the '3' button the remote will send 783.

Hope that helps:)

Volume buttons have to be pressed hard to work


Try mapping the Volume buttons to the LCD screen in each Activity you use them in. To do this, see below.

1. Launch the Logitech Harmony Remote software and login to your account
2. From the Harmony homepage, click on the Customize Buttons button for the Activity you wish to customize.
Additional Buttons:
To modify commands on the LCD screen, click on the Additional Buttons tab at the top of the page.

a. In the Button column, select the button you wish to customize, from 1 to 4 for each page. The illustration of the remote below shows where each button is placed on the display.
b. In the text box in the Button column Type in the name of the button.
c. In the Device column, select the device you wish to send the command to.
e. In the Command column, select the command you want from the dropdown list
f. You can delete a command by clicking the trash can icon beside it
g. You can move commands to different button positions by using the arrows
h. Click on the Add new Page button to add another page
i. Click on the Learn Command button if the command you need is not in the drop-down box. You will be able to capture the button from your original remote.
j. Click on the Add Sequence button to create a custom sequence of 5 commands for a single button.
k. After making any changes, ensure that you click on the Done button to save the button customizations. The last step is to update your remote.
l. Connect the Harmony to your computer’s USB cable and click on the Update Remote button on the Harmony homepage

Test the commands on the LCD. if they do work id advise you to contact logitech.
