Question about Logitech HARMONY 659 Remote Control

1 Answer


I H659 off button has not been working properly. It is taking multiple time to activate the command. It appears to definitely be in the button connection. What can I do to either repair this button or do a work around to give me another off operation. Can I setup an off activity in the software that would be in the other activities area? Please let me know on this at your soonest convenience.

You realise we are not Logitech? We are Fixya, a self help website, people just like you helping others because we can.

Take the back off and clean the under side of the button with switch cleaner fluid. DO NOT USE WD40.

Harmony Downloads - Logitech Harmony Harmony software for use by audio/video installation professionals. ... Harmony 890 Pro; Harmony 555; Harmony 659; Harmony 880; Harmony 900 ...

The Logitech website is here. They can fix it for you or help you with the programming, but I doubt on and off will be an optional setting.

SOURCE: Intermittently Working Correctly with DirecTv

Update your Harmony remote control software on your PC to the latest. Go into the TV device settings. The software should recognize if there is an update to your TV's IR commands. Try the same things with the DVR.

It's also possible the TV and/or DVR are locking up due to IR commands that are being sent too quickly. The remote has a setting for the delay between commands sent to the same device as well as the delay between commands sent to different devices. Try adjusting these settings:

  1. In the Harmony remote software on your PC, click the "Devices" tab.
  2. For the "TV" device, click the "Settings" button.
  3. Click the dot next to "Adjust the delays" and click Next.
  4. Adjust the "Inter-key" and "Inter-device" delays to something higher and click Next.
  5. Follow the steps to save the changes.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for your DVR device as well.

SOURCE: activities button won't work

Have you tried the "help" button? That usually rights anything wrong with the unit, by itself.

If not, connect it to a PC, and let it re-program itself.

SOURCE: The Activity Menu does not appear and cannot play DVD, etc.

Reread the manaul on the remote control, or call Logitech technical support and see if they can walk you through it, or if you still have the reciept try returning it and getting another one.

SOURCE: "Activities" flashes and the screen

  1. Please remove the batteries from your remote
  2. Press and hold down the 2 button while connecting the remote to your computer
  3. The Harmony Remote LCD screen should display Upgrade Success
  4. Please un-plug the remote from your computer and test

Also check for any stuck buttons on the remote. Lastly, try updating your programming through the Harmony software including any firmware updates.

I can find codes for a black standard uverse remote which is 1040. But I cant find a code for silver standard uverse remote. Uverse says to talk to DYNEX. Can you help?

i currently use uverse and none of there remotes work for dynex tv's i suggest buying the logitec harmony 520 or 420 or above remote from amazon read the reviews there around 40 dollars and lets you control everything and they connect to you pc you just plug in you model number and the remote learns all the commands as well as lets you set up activities that will allow you to control multiple devices without having to switch between hitting the tv button, home theater button, uverse box etc.
hope this helps.

My Remote for the TV (Harmony H659), does not always respond to button selections, Particularly the " PREV " button. Your advice on how to fix it, or get it fixed. Thanks

check the batterys, there may be some dirt in the prev button and its not contacting correctly. also clean the tv receaver and the remote. if that has no effect or you just tried brand new batterys, you may have to take the remote apart and inspect the buttons, there may be some dirt in there or maybe the button is not correctly in place, not touching properly.

My ti-83 stopped working after i used rechargeable battteries. Now i realized I'm not suppose to use them. Now whenever i turn the calculator on, i can't turn it off. I will try to press letters or numbers...

I'm thinking the calculator itself froze (stalled), or the circuit board is taking a long time to process the your command (telling the calculator to turn off). Maybe you should wait a few hours or so and see if it's still on. Did you perhaps take the batteries out while the calculator was still on? You may have damage the circuits inside of the calculator by taking the batteries out while the calculator itself was still on. Maybe if you put some new batteries in the battery compartment and press the "ON" button, it might function properly. This is a suggestion and I hope this works.

Turns on, but buttons don't respond.

If you have a remote,just press down on the volume up button and roll it around in circles.It sounds stuck and that sometimes will help unstick it.Also do it on the TV's button.If that doesn't work please let me know and we'll try something else.Good luck!

My harmony remote won't change channels or do anything. It will only change the volume. Why?

Hi. There are a couple of things that you can try to get the remote working. First, you can learn the commands from the original remote for your devices.

Also, ensure that the buttons on the remote are properly mapped to commands. You can check your button mapping my clicking "Customize Buttons" beside the icon for your Activities.

Hope that is helpful.

Mouse not responding to commands properly

Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Voice Activation

I have a 2006 A8 and if you need help with the command say "help mmi" or when you are in one of the following modes: radio, CD, or Navigation. you can say "help ." This should provide you with all the commands the voice command can understand.

How to activate command buttons

Not w/o you sharing how you did it step by step. Can you add some screenshots of the steps you tok to get there? In general "add record" should jump to another form that allows you to enter your data for the new record and "save" it.
