    I have the same problem with my Harmony 676. I put in new batteries, and less than 2 weeks later it is saying "Replace Batteries" again. Periodically, the LCD screen goes blank.

Where to find lcd screens for Harmony 676 remote


Logitech does not sell the screens of the remote unfortunately. If I were you I would go on eBay and buy a second hand remote cheap for the screen. I did that one time and it worked out great!

The remote won't show signs of life even after changing the batteries twice


Hi. I would suggest trying the following steps:

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 that doesnt fix it, or the firmware update fails or you cant boot the remote into safe mode then it's probably a hardware issue. If you are still in warranty you can call Logitech to get it replaced. :)

My devices suddenly stopped responding to my remote even though the remote looks to be working normally


Remove batteries, let it sit for a minuit then put in some fresh batteries.

Still not working?

Plug it back into your computer and load Harmony Remote software. Click on "update remote" this will reload the firmware and programming.

I've had a couple harmony remotes go wackey on me but normally re-loading the programming or putting in fresh batteries fixes em right up!

Cheers,

Kevin

Hi there i have a logitech harmony 520 remote and my son spilt some soda on it. now the lcd display is blank all the time even when a button is pressed, but when i connect it to my pc via usb it flashes...


Please apply the following troubleshooting steps to get the LCD screen issue resolved:

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.

If this doesnt fix the problem i suggest you contact logitech. when contacting them, do not tell them your son spit soda on it:

Harmony 550 remote - buttons not working


Hey!

Unfortunately most things you need to do would require access to the Harmony Remote Software. However, the only advise I would have is for you to remove the batteries and try putting them back in.

Sorry I couldnt be more helpful...

My remote for the harmony 550 says welcome to remote even after I replaced old batteries with brand new batteries. No buttons will work any suggestions?


First I would check to see if any of your buttons are sticking. I have found that this is a common problem with the 550 remote. I really like this remote but if nothing works check your buttons to see if any are pressed under the plastic. This remote can only work one button at a time so if one is being pressed it will not work.

I need a new keypad for a Logitech Harmony 676 Remote control. Can't get one from Logitech. Does anyone know where I can get one other than to buy a used remote for parts?


I do not know where to get a replacement keypad, but I just fixed the one that I have. On the surface that comes into contact with the circuit board, the keys have a matt black appearance, except for the malfunctioning volume keys. The volume keys looked glossy. I am guessing that oils from our skin have passed through the rubbery keypads and built up on the inside preventing the keys from activating the contacts on the circuit board. I took some adhesive tape remover solvent with a Qtip and lightly wiped it off the keypad, and it works like new. I first tried isopropyl alcohol, and it did not remove the glossy appearance. I hope this helps you.

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.
