880 won't work unless I hold it within two inches of tv

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger

Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

What probably happened is the battery slowly drained on the shelf and its shot. Basically the type of battery in these (and a lot of other devices) can not be left with a very low charge for long periods of time or it degrades them. What happened is the battery just degraded and now cant hold a charge.

Does not turn any equipment on or off. has power but does not communicate at all. I have rebooted, etc. but no luck. Old remotes still work. It appears that IR is dead.

If you have confirmed that the remote's IR emitters have failed and you are out of the warranty period (1 yr), you have a few choices. You can contact Logitech. They will usually issue a 50% discount on a new remote. Or, you can try to repair the remote yourself using the guidance in this article:

Or, you can have it repaired for $14 (or less if you haggle) from this Ebay seller:

Good luck!

you need to return it. one of the IR led only works. I had that, had to return (RMA) the unit. you can check with some camcorders to see how bright the LED is (the camcorders often can 'see' the IR led like a white light).
i.e. either the power circuit for the IR LEDs is failing or the IR LED themselves are dead.
there is nothign you can fix on your own. CAll the support and get a replacement unit. or return the remote to a store if you just bought it.

We have a logitech 880 Harmony TV remote. It will not hold a charge. We bought a new battery and that did not help. It will not do anything Now it says "safe mode requested" AA681, B2390.

Assumption: the remote did not in any way receive physical damage including any sort of moisture or liquid inside.

Aside from you replacing the battery which you already indicated, I would recommend you contact Logictech technical support.

One more thing you may want to try is to take a soft pencil eraser and make sure the three gold contacts are clean by rubbing each with the eraser to insure good contact when sitting in the charge cradle.

Hi k750i,phone works perfect but won,t hold a charge for long,even with new batteries. thank you

Before you change the battery:
  1. Charge the battery fully
  2. Discharge the battery fully
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2
If the battery does not reset itself and start lasting longer then you do need to replace it.

If that does not work the phone will require repair of the leads from the charger to the battery or the battery to the phone

It may say it is fully charged but I?ll bet that?s not the case. I?ve only had one of my iPAQs die of a battery that won?t hold a charge and what you describe is exactly what it wound up doing, eventually. The batteries aren?t too expensive and if you have the skills and patience you can replace it yourself. Here is a link to a site that sells the replacement batteries and the instructions how to do it:
