Question about Logitech Harmony 680 LCD Remote Control

2 Answers

The volume down doesn't work anymore.

Help! I absolutely love this remote, but when I hit the volume down button, nothing happens. I can still increase the volume, but can no longer decrease it. Is there a place where I can get this fixed or do I have to call it a loss and buy a new one?

Re: The volume down doesn't work anymore.

I had the same problem! Here's the solution: For whatever reason, the remote starts to compress the button seat.(the place where the button on the remote "interfaces" with the button) and It can't respond because the button "seat" is too far away from the end of the button on the remote. THIS IS A PHYSICAL PROBLEM NOT AN ELECTRICAL ONE!! You need to be able to open the remote, and put small TINY pieces of tape stacked on top of the offending button seat to decrease that distance from the button on the remote to its "seat".
PAY ATTENTION so you can discern which button interfaces with the correct seat. Sometimes there is junk and gunk in the small cracks where the case halves join that can cause this distance. Clean that out too!
BADA BING! You are in business. You can carefully take off the cover and pop the battery back in, then you can see that indeed, the command works when you push the button "seat" down with the end of a Q-tip or something similar.

My remoute control joust change the volume and anyother keys doesn't work.

The remote's volume keys are "punch-thru" keys, meaning they'll work for the TV for which the
remote is programmed no matter what mode the remote is in. It seems your remote is not
in "TV mode," but the punch-thru keys (volume UP/DOWN) are working.
The Solution: change the remote from "AUX mode" or "DVD Mode" back to "TV mode", by
pressing the "TV" button at the top of the remote.

Either that, or your remote keypad has failed with the exception of the Volume UP/DOWN keys....
Also, your batteries may be failing, since it takes a tiny amount of energy to light
the IR (infra-red) LEDs at the front of the remote to change the volume.
Is your remote a "multi-function" remote?
Could help more if you could post your Samsung remote model number, since lists 37 pages of TV remotes (at 10 models per page).

Remote will not work

if the light is staying on this means that a button is stuck down on your remote. It might be defective I would contact the company about warranty.

Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.
