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.

Glowlight problem


The problem with your Logitech Harmony 520 backlight staying on is with the timing crystal.

This is a solid state component that is responsible for telling the remote when the light has been on long enough.
It is very common in these remotes for the timing crystal to fail, thus your glowlight stays on until the batteries are dead.

If your Logitech Harmony is under warranty, contact Logitech Support (1-866-934-5644) to have your remote replaced.

If you are handy with soldering solid state electronics, the part you want to replace looks like a capacitor. You can buy what you need from any electronic parts store or hobby shop, just ask for a 32.768KHz crystal.

I hope that helps.
