Question about Rti Technologies Televison & Video
My remote, less than 60 days old won't turn on. When placed in charge the light is blue as if it is charged. I have tried it in our other charger and the light is blue as well.

Whenever possible contact an authorized RTI dealer in your area for support help!
There are a couple of reasons that a T1 or T2+ goes black. I understand that the screen does not light but if the buttons do not light either. The first most obvious reason is the battery is dead, even though it may act like it is charging. Pop the back off and check to see if the battery is slightly bulged. If so, it is for sure finished with its life. Further if the battery is over 2 - 3 years old it is probably done. Replacement batteries are available, but changing them requires more knowledge than just knowing how to use a Philips screw driver. The mother board battery connector is very susceptible to damage, so you must take great caution to hold the white mother board connector down gently on the edge with a small screw driver while you pull the white battery connector out.
Another potential problem area that will cause the screen to go off or become fractal is that there is an internal screw in the lower left that clamps the keyboard circuit board in place. This is also the ground clamp for the keypad illuminating surface. If this screw was not installed tightly the contact surface underneath will burn off. I have successfully repaired several of these by placing a triple folded small piece of aluminum foil in place of the burned out contact material under the screw and clear plastic illuminating sheet then tighten up the screw.
Only perform repairs if you are qualified to do so J

SOURCE: Charger Base Doesn't Charge
I just had the same problem, went to best buy and got a new 890 and tested the old remote with the new charger, the new charger has a different design slightly, has only two pins and no center pin on the charger. its charging the old remote now so its definitely a design flaw. Not sure what to do now tho.

There is a trick with these remotes. Take a tiny piece of paper and
wedge it in between the battery and the side of the battery compartment
opposite the battery contacts when you insert battery.
This will apply more pressure between battery contacts and remote.
Now your harmony should properly charge up overnight.
Had the same problem with mine and the paper trick fixed it.
Was even able to use the old battery again.
Has something to do with the three contacts on the battery.
All 3 need to make good contact.

Testimonial: "didn't work with new replacement bat all that happened was the test process and press -> symbol and then I get a red circled ? in the top right"
The remote keeps it's memory in a non-volatile memory chip which is unaffected by power loss. So changing the battery is safe. The replacement batteries can be ordered from your RTI dealer for $45. Be careful with a T1 battery connector, they are delicate and can pull away from the board leading to an expensive repair. I'd suggest taking the remote to your dealer and have them replace it for you.

Try replacing the battery. If this does not fix the problem the charging circuit may be bad and need service. Go through your dealer if you purchased it that way and they may be able to provide you with a loaner while it's sent off to service. Or call RTI yourself and setup a service request. (952) 253-3136
