Low battery icon on, won't recharge


Hi. If you do some research, you will find that this is a common issue with the Harmony One remote. I suggest using an elastic band to hold the remote firm onto the charger. That works for me.

My LCD screen on my Logitech isn't working. It is black but blue when it sits in the cradle for charging.


Hi.
With Harmony remotes, when they get old, often the LCD screens fail. I had this happen to my Harmony 880, and updating the firmware solved it for a while, though the solution was not permanent. To update the firmware on your remote, log in to the Harmony software and click "Downloads" at the top of the screen. On the next page, click "Firmware" and follow the steps on the screen.
Hope that fixes it for you.

Blank screen but backlite is on


Had the same exact problem. Blue screen, no text, but remote worked ok - if you could figure out which buttons did what. Tried every solution posted online - battery pull for 10 sec, battery pull for 1 hr, and battery pull overnight. Tried updating software, firmware, but nothing worked. Found a replacement screen on ebay for $26 shipped, replaced it in less than 5 minutes, and works great.

LCD lites up, but Icons and words are gone, its blank.


Ah, sounds like the "blue screen of death". Very often, putting the remote in 'safe mode' and doing a firmware update will fix this problem. Here's how:

Launch the Logitech Remote software on your computer and click on "Downloads" (on the top menu bar). Then, take the battery out of your remote and at the same time you connect the USB cable to your remote (it should be already connected on the computer end) press and hold down the Off button at the top of the remote. This will put the remote in "safe mode". Continue to hold down the Off button until you see the message "safe mode requested" on the remote's screen and the screen starts blinking. Now, since your screen is not behaving properly, you may or may not see this message, but after about 5 seconds you can release the Off button. Now, go back to your computer and click on "Firmware". If the software is able to communicate with the remote, an update to the remote's firmware should be executed. This has solved many a 'blue screen of death' problem. Good luck!

I have a HD DVR from Dish Network and I don't remeber what key to push to find my recored programs. I have a Harmony 900 remote.


You can find out what all of the buttons on your Harmony remote do by checking the button customization page in the Harmony software. To access this page, click "Customize Buttons" beside the icon for your Activity.

Hope that helps.

Harmony 890 remote has solid blue screen


Try putting the remote in 'safe mode' before doing the firmware update. I can't think of anything else you can try, but 'safe mode' --> Firmware update often does the trick. Here's how:

Launch the Logitech Remote software on your computer and click on "Downloads" (on the top menu bar). Then, take the battery out of your remote and at the same time you connect the USB cable to your remote (it should be already connected on the computer end) press and hold down the Off button at the top of the remote. This will put the remote in "safe mode". Continue to hold down the Off button until you see the message "safe mode requested" on the remote's screen and the screen starts blinking. Now, since your screen is not behaving properly, you may or may not see this message, but after about 5 seconds you can release the Off button. Now, go back to your computer and click on "Firmware". If the software is able to communicate with the remote, an update to the remote's firmware should be executed. This has solved many a 'blue screen of death' problem. Good luck!

Logitech Harmony 890 Pro - Blank LCD Screen


Replacement screens can be found on ebay for around $25-$30. I was having the same problem as everybody else, and none of the solutions posted online worked for me - software, firmware, battery pulls, safe mode, etc. I replaced the screen in about 5 minutes and was back up and running.... I almost bought a new remote, but figured I'd try the $26 screen first.... Glad I did..

Blank Blue Screen, but buttons still work


I had the same problem and when I took the remote apart the ribbon connecting the lcd screen to the remote controller board was sheared. The remote was dropped and the impact caused two of the traces on the ribbon to tear.

Customize LCD icons & tect


In the program menu on the computer that is used to sync the remote, go to the "Activities" section and select the button at the bottom for "New Activity". From their, program in your appropriate equipment to follow the activity that you intend to use in each respective activity. The icons unfortunately are pre-made, so you will be limited to what ever icons for activities Logitech has created with their latest software/firmware. After you have programmed in your new activities, perform an "Update Remote" and test it out.
