Question about Logitech HARMONY 659 Remote Control

2 Answers

Batteries need changing about every 2-3 weeks !!

We put in the copper top batteries 4 AAA. The expiry date for the batteries in 2015. This happens far to frequently. Just tonight my wife went to turn on the tv and the remote was making a squealing sound and then it said batteries low change. We just changed them not even two(2) weeks ago. So what gives ? Is this remote a lemmon and should I take it back for a replacement. We've owned it for about 3-4 months.

    The first solution I would never have thought about but the other two are the most logical.

    Thanks for your time and quick response it is appreciated !

I have the same remote.  My solution to the problem (other than returning it to the store) is rechargeable batteries.  This has worked well for us.  Unfortunately, the remote recently hit the floor one time too many, dislodging the USB connector on the front and shorting out the unit.  So, I no longer own that remote.  But while I did, the rechargeables did the trick.  Still change them out frequently, but not wasting money or polluting as much.

How do I change batteries?


To whom it may concern,

Remove the back panel on the remote, remove the dead batteries and install new ones in the same orientation that you found the previous ones in. Your remote is now ready to go.

Best of luck

Replaced batteries in my ergomotion remote control and still doesn't work what could be the problem


With some emery tape make sure the terminals are shiny clean. Remove flat batteries because they can wreck a remote in no time flat.

I just purchased a XRT503 vizio remote for my TV and I can'tfigure out how to put the batteries in, no manual came with it


Flip remote over and see if there is a small sliding door on the back that you can slide open for the batteries. Either AA or AAA batteries needed.

The sat button on my remote is rapidly blinking, and now most of the other buttons will not work.


When the SAT button blinks repeatedly, or the buttons do a dance (Sat & DVD, TV & AUX, repeat) it means you need new batteries. Replace all four AAA batteries, ensure they are all four aligned the same way, and then hit SAT. Your remote should return to its normal function. If you leave the batteries out for too long, the remote will forget how to operate the TV and receiver, so be sure to have all four new batteries ready before you remove the old ones.

How do you take the cover off to change the batteries?? Logitech Harmony 510 model


Hi. The battery cover for the Harmony 510 is just like any other remote. There is a small grip area that you push on to slide the battery cover off, (sliding the cover towards the back end of the remote). This remote takes four (4) AAA batteries.


Regards,

My Model RCV1T-27 remote will go through a set of AAA batteries in 2 weeks. We only use the remote in the evening and then only to turn on the system and set the volume. All the channel changine is done...


If I am lucky, I get 3 days with a brand new set of batteries. Actually, I rarely ever use my system for that very reason. the irony is i chose this model based on the radio frequency feature. . .what a fiasco.
