Not a solution but, you need to be careful when interchanging chargers. Make sure the current and voltage being fed to the device is the same. If you look at the little transformer that plugs into the wall on the original remote charger it will give you that info. It's probably going to be 5 or 12 volts and between 500 and 1000 mA (milliamps).
if the one on your ps3 is the same you're good to go.
Hope this helps

Unfortunately, the Harmony 890 and 880 chargers have a design flaw that makes the remote slowly become unable to charge. One way that I get around this with my Harmony 880 is to attach an elastic band around the remote when it is in the charger, so that it does not lose contact. You can also purchase one of the new chargers (Logitech redesigned them) for about 10 bucks US. You can order it by calling the Logitech sales line which is 1-800-231-7717.

Hi, This is actually a fairly common issue. There is a design flaw with the 880 and 890 chargers that causes the pins to no longer make contact after a while. Good news is that to buy a replacement charger is only about $10.
You can try pressing down on the remote, and wiggling it around. It's just that the pins are not making contact. If pressing down helps, you can fasten it on with a elasitc band or something so that it keeps charging.

Harmony 890 just went dead. Nothing. Nada. Not

I have an 890 also. I've found that the remote doesn't always charge when it the charger. I have to put a rubber band around it and make sure it shows that the the battery symbol on the display is showing that it charging. Or the battery isn't taking a charge anymore and I'd try to replace it. Doesn't really hold a charge very long either.

Screen is blank on Logitech Harmony 890 remote. It is charged

HI! Here's what to do if your Logitech Harmony remote's LCD screen has gone blank.

1. Remove the battery, press and hold the 'OFF' button, and re-insert the battery. The screen will display 'Safe Mode!', or the 'Activities' button will be lit.

2. Connect your remote to the computer.

3. Launch the Harmony Remote Software, and log in.

4. Click "Downloads" at the top and click "Firmware".

5. The remote will go through the firmware update.

6. Select "Yes", and click NEXT to update the remote.

If the screen is still blank after you complete these steps, then it is a hardware issue and you should contact Logitech's wonderful support team, given that the remote is still under warranty.
