After forcing my open, I found two screws more. Located at each side of the "activity" button - hidden beneath a the class covering the lcd-panel and framing keys. It is attached with double-sided tape. Rip it of - and your remote will look much better than mine...

Disassemble or open the remote control Sony RM-YD035

if Sony Remote RM-YD035 does not change channels or turn off TV, the buttons got dirty coz those are you most used buttons.

You can repair Sony Remote RM-YD035 yourself. It's quite easy and fast, with perfect result!

To disassemble or open the remote control Sony RM-YD035, first remove a single screw in the battery compartment. Then use a very thin but strong screwdriver and insert it between top cover and the body at the back part of the battery compartment. Move the screwdriver up and down and slowly move it to the left and to the right and continue along the perimeter. Use two or three such screwdrivers and in 2-4 minutes the top cover plate with buttons will separate from the body/bottom/casing.

Clean both parts thoroughly. And then gently put them back together in the opposite order. The parts will snap closing.

You are done.

Mine is now working perfectly

Try pressing down on the remote, and wiggling it around. It's just that the pins are not making contact I suspect.

If pressing down helps, you can fasten it on with a elasitc band or something so that it keeps charging. Also, if it is still under warranty, I woul advise contacting Logitech's wonderful support team to get replaced.

Hope that helps!

The keys to Our LOgitech 880 no longer function - how do I get into the casing to check out what is wrong?

First, open up the battery cover and remove the screw at the bottom of the compartment. There is a second screw at the top of the remote. Use a small phillips-head screwdriver. Then,the best way to open the case without marring the surface is to use your thumbnail (if it is a little long), or a thin strip of plastic (from an old credit-card will do). Near the bottom of the remote, on the left or right side, try to wiggle your nail (or the plastic) between the two halves of the remote. Once you open up a tiny space, push your nail in and down at an angle. Then, simply slide your nail up the side of the remote, keeping it at an angle. This will pop the tabs that are holding the two halves together. Once one side has been freed, do the other side. When you are finished exploring, you simply realign the pieces and snap it back to together. Good luck!

Non functioning "zero" button on Logitech Harmony 880 Rf remote

The problem may be either a stuck "0" button, or the contact on the control board is dirty. You can take the remote apart by removing the screws and slowly separating the top and bottom halves of the remote. There should be 2 screws on the back of the remote (1 is hidden under the battery/cover). If you need further assistance let me know.

I purchased a Harmony 520 remote back in Feb./March. I registered it online and I have perfomed all of the updates. The display and backlighting quit working. What do I need to do about this and is covered...

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.

How to open Harmony 520 remote for cleaning?

Here's how. Logitech doesn't cooperate on these issues. Not sure why they're so secretive, but here's the skinny.

Take the four screws out from under the batteries. On each side of the remote there are four spots (or buttons) where you have to insert a *very thin* screwdriver or blade of some type and push to separate the cases. The first set of buttons are located on either side of the "Glow" button. The next ones are on either side of the <- and -> buttons. The next set is on either side of the "Stop" and "Play" buttons. The last is on either side of the "Activities" button. Just insert a flat edge and press as you gently pry the casing apart with your fingers. Take your time and don't force it to open. Hope this helps.

Disassemble DirecTV RC32 remote to fix sticky buttons

There are a total of SIX screws. You have already found two in the battery compartment. There are four more under the GREY panel on the front of the remote. That grey panel pries out; there are two tabs on the lower sides and one on the top, above the > button, that hold it in. Should not be hard to get it out to reveal the four screws. Take them all out, and the remove easily pries apart for service access.
