Cannot open Harmony Remote 785 - clips at top not releasing

I have a button not working and have the same problem as you that I cant seemto open the top section near the "Activities" button. All other clips open easily... there seems to be something else holding the panel closed - near the plastic red cover at the top perhaps.

Please help if anyone can. Logitech are very unhelpful as it is just over 2 years old and cannot advise any place to repair it.

SOURCE: how do you change the activities on the remote

Yes it will. Go log in to the Logitech program software and there, at the upper left is a button that simply reads, "Reorder Activities"

Click that button, reorder to your heart's content and update your remote.

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!

Harmony 880- how to take be back cover off?


Once the screws are out, using your finger nail (I find the thumb is best), with the remote display side up - do the following: At the very narrowest part of the remote, with the display facing up, wedge your nail in and down. This will spread the cover just a bit. Move forwards and backwards, and you should get the retaining clips to "pop' out from the top half. Do one side completly before the other, there are 4 "clips" per side. If you did this carefully, you will not have broken any of the clips, nor scratched the plastic. When re-assembling, be sure the IR / USB cover is properly in place before evenly snapping the top and bottom halves back together. Hint, if you look very carefully in the seam, you can actually tell where the 4 clips are as there is a slight indent and it is a bit darker.

If you do not want to damage the case edge, or break the clips....DO NOT use a screw driver, and do not force anything very far into the seam.

1- Remove the battery from the Harmony Remote for 10 seconds and insert it back in, and test the remote to see if the screen is displayed properly. If this does not fix the issue, please proceed with the following steps.
2- Make sure you have the latest Logitech Harmony Software (version 7.6.0) installed on your computer.
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.
