Frozen LCD on Harmony 880 Remote

The display on my remote will only display the default blue background. The rest of the remote functions properly.

I have updated the firmware and rebooted the remote several times, leaving the battery out for various lengths of time up to 30 minutes.

Ah, the 'blue screen of death'. Before you give up on this try one more thing -

Sometimes putting the remote in 'safe mode' and doing a firmware update will bring the screen back to life. Here's how:
Launch the Logitech Remote software on your computer and click on "Downloads" (on the top menu bar). Then, take the battery out of your remote and at the same time you connect the USB cable to your remote (it should be already connected on the computer end) press and hold down the Off button at the top of the remote. This will put the remote in "safe mode". Continue to hold down the Off button until you see the message "safe mode requested" on the remote's screen and the screen starts blinking. Now, since your screen is not behaving properly, you may or may not see this message, but after about 5 seconds you can release the Off button. Now, go back to your computer and click on "Firmware". If the software is able to communicate with the remote, an update to the remote's firmware should be executed. This has solved many a 'blue screen of death' problem. Good luck!

Harmony 880 display is backlit but menu won't display. It seems to still work (pressing the button I know to be "Watch TV" turns everything on ok). Is the LCD broken?


Sometimes the LCD screen fails on the 880/890 series. But, there are a few tricks you can try that have brought the LCD back to life.
Some LCD problems have been solved by updating the remote's firmware while the remote has been placed in 'safe mode'. To do this, launch the Logitech Remote software on your computer and click on "Downloads" (on the top menu bar). Then, take the battery out of your remote and at the same time you connect the USB cable to your remote (it should be already connected on the computer end) press and hold down the Off button at the top of the remote. This will put the remote in "safe mode". Continue to hold down the Off button until you see the message "safe mode requested" on the remote's screen and the screen starts blinking. Now, since your screen is not behaving properly, you may or may not see this message, but after about 5 seconds you can release the Off button. Now, go back to your computer and click on "Firmware". If the software is able to communicate with the remote, an update to the remote's firmware should be executed. This has solved many a 'blue screen of death' problem. Good luck!

Harmony 880 will not turn any components on


First, check your battery indicator (make sure it's fully charged).  Second, dock your remote with the USB cable and reprogram the remote.  It's possible you disconnected before the programming was properly transmitted to your remote.  Finally, if things don't work, use the HELP button on the remote.  It should talk you through a procedure to fix your problem.

Hi!

You need to reset the remote control. Pull the battery out of the unit. To do this slide down the back cover off. Reinstall the battery after 2 minutes and it will reset the remote and you will be able to again use it.

Thanks for using FixYa and do rate the solution as fixya if found helpful.

Harmony 880 does not change input with Onkyo HT-R520 amplifier


You will either have to use your Onkyo remote to teach the Harmony those functions or try one of the similar model receivers in the Harmony software. I had to chose a similar DVD player in the list in order to get my Harmony to play nice with my DVD player.

Programming Harmony 880 Remote to Mute with CC on Sony Bravia KDL-40W4100


Do you use a Home Theater receiver along with your televison?  Are other components, such as a DVD player, VCR, Blu-ray player, etc. connected?
If so, it's possible that the Mute function on your remote is muting the sound from your receiver, and not the TV itself.
If that's the case, you'll need to look at the details of the "default" buttons for your activities, and see whether the Mute function is associated with your TV or your receiver.  If it's set for the receiver, you need to change it to be associated with the TV.

I cannot set the time, my 880 remote want allow me to set the time!


I saw these posts recently and decided I would try and figure out the time on my Harmony 880.

First, using your Logitech Harmony remote software, version 7.5.0, log on using your login ID and password.

Next, select the remote settings tab, and go to display settings. Select time/display format and check the 24 hour format. (Note: the assumption is that you have already set the 12 hour time before hand, even though is says A.M.) I made this change to my own remote when it was actually was 7:30 P.M.
My remote actually reported 7:30 A.M. at this point. Save your changes online and plug in your remote to your USB port and let the Harmony update your change. Now your remote should be in 24 hour format.

Finally, log back on using the same procedure above only this time, click the check box for 12 hour format, save your changes and update your Harmony 880 one last time. Your finished, your remote should now be displaying the correct time in 12 hour format.
