Have you tried resetting your Logitech Harmony 520 remote by updating your remote's firmware? Firmware replacement fixes several Harmony problems.

To upgrade or reapply the firmware on your Harmony remote:
  1. Launch the Harmony remote software and log into your account.
  2. Click on the Downloads button at the top-right corner of your screen.
  3. Click on the Firmware button. Follow the onscreen instructions to upgrade the firmware on your Harmony remote.
  4. Once the firmware upgrade is complete, click on the Update Remote button.
I hope that helps.

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.
