Question about Logitech Harmony 880 LCD Remote Control

2 Answers

Harmony 880 bricked

Backlit screen. no text. Tried a firmware upgrade but that didn't help. Niether did the process the logitech support staff walked me through which consisted of popping the battery and holding the "off" button and entering a code. It's a brick. The tech said they have to send it elswhere to unbrick it. I dont want to pay for this, had it for well over a year so no warranty.

Anyone know how to unbrick it? There are contacts under the sticker in the battery compartment. I'm wondering if jumping a pair would help. If so. what pair? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I love this remote.

    same exact problem.  I'm able to flash firmware no problem, but nothing works.  When placing it into safe mode the lcd backlight just blinks continuously
