Question about Logitech Harmony 880 LCD Remote Control

1 Answer

My 880 only works from about 3 feet away but used to work fine from across the room. The battery is new and charged and I have updated the firmware and the settings. It works fine up close but not at distance.

You need to return it. one of the IR led only works. I had that, had to return (RMA) the unit. you can check with some camcorders to see how bright the LED is (the camcorders often can 'see' the IR led like a white light).
i.e. either the power circuit for the IR LEDs is failing or the IR LED themselves are dead.
there is nothign you can fix on your own. CAll the support and get a replacement unit. or return the remote to a store if you just bought it.

sounds like the firmware on the device is corrupted to me, it should have came with some sort or connector (either proprietary or USB) which can use to connect it to the computer. Redownload the firmware or update to the most recent version like is:

Logitech 880 remote is in safe mode and says A.

Sometimes you want to put the remote in safe mode to recover from the LCD "blue screen of death" or other unsavory events. Usually you do this just before you update the remote's firmware (not software). So, you can try connecting to your computer via USB and, using the Logitech Software, go to Downloads-->Firmware. If you can get through the firmware update, you will probably be ok. Good luck

Harmony 880 - some buttons not working and then working again This is an odd one... Everything was fine with my 880 when I went to work leaving it over my desk... when I got back, the soft buttons on the...

This is very strange and I have to admit, I have not come across a situation where I've seen (or heard about) this degree of intermittent behavior. I've seen a couple of buttons require a bit more pressure to operate and then clear itself up and act up again - with or w/o doing firmware updates, so I do understand your frustration. Your post is already quite old, so I wonder if you were able to find a solution somewhere. In any event, I wanted to tell you that it looks like you have done all of things that I would have recommended and I'm not sure there is anything else to try. You could try jarring the remote a bit by banging it against your hand to see if anything changes (this is the old 'brute force' approach). This may help identify a loose connection somewhere. But, my sense is that it is more software related, since typically when hardware starts to go it does not repair itself and a failing component or solder joint would usually affect a smaller area, not the majority of your buttons, both hard and 'soft'. So, another thing you can try is starting over. Since there is no way for you to initialize the remote back to 'Factory Defaults' or restore the remote with a previous version of the firmware, you could create a new account and add only 1 activity (watch TV) using only 1 device (the TV). Update the remote with this configuration and see if that helps clear it up. If that takes care of the problem, add back your other activities and devices. I hope this is helpful, though I'm not optimistic.

Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

Go to and download the latest bios firmware to update it. If it still does not work then most likely it is already a hardware issue so you need to contact dell support for the hardware issue.

According to Magellan at their website, a new map update will be available next month (sometime). There is a firmware update there now.  The firmware update works fine if you follow their instructions.....full battery charge etc.

Screen goes blank with line across it

It's been rumored to turn off WAAS, as it seems to be a new satellite communication problem within the V. So far so good with mine. It appeared the screen was dead at first.
