Did you try this response from the Logitech users' forum? It can't hurt to try since all your settings are stored on the web, not on the remote.

Basically, Safe Mode is a diagnostic tool in the Remote used for troubleshooting purposes. If the words "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode Requested" appear on the remote, complete the following steps:

1. Ensure the Remote is in "Safe Mode Requested" by taking out the batteries, and disconnecting the remote from the USB cable.
2. Hold down the Off button and plug the remote into the USB.
3. Continue holding down the Off button for another 10 seconds. The remote should then display the words "Safe Mode Requested".
4. With the unit in "Safe Mode Requested", re-install the firmware by clicking Support on your home page.
5. Click Firmware in the Downloads section and follow the online instructions to upgrade the firmware.
6. Once the firmware upgrade is complete, click Update My Remote.
7. Insert new batteries into the remote.

The following steps will reset your remote. If this does not fix it, then it's probable a hjardware related problem.


1- Remove the battery from the Harmony remote, hold the 'Off' button and insert the battery back in. The screen will display 'Safe Mode'.

2- Make sure you have version 7.7.0 of the Harmony software installed on your computer. You can download it at http://logitech.com/myharmony.

3- Launch the software and log in to your account.

4- Click on 'Downloads' at the top of the screen.

5- Click 'Firmware' and follow the steps to update the firmware on the remote.

My logitech 550 is not responding. It has worked


Hi. That message means that there is a button that is stuck down on the remote.

1. Take out the battery, push in and massage each button to ensure it is not stuck down.
2. Put the battery back in, update the firmware,
3. Update the remote.

That should get the remote working again. :)

Harmony 550 in safe mode


Hi There,
To get out of safe mode, do a firmware update from your PC. This will install the latest firmware and your configuration. Safe mode is a bootstrap designed to recover from firmware corruption issues so about the only thing it knows how to do is reload firmware.
However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.
