If you don't have the code do this! I worked for me.... Hold code search until light stays on... then select item to program <tv, vcr, dvd,exct..>... then press power button once... It will blink every couple of seconds and run thru the codes it self..... wait for the item choosen to turn off.... Then quickly press enter... TADA PROGRAMED!!!!! continue for each item to be programed. Be patient there are up to 500 codes! Can take Up to 10 min, But better than wasting $10.00$ good luck

SOURCE: blank screen on the Harmony 550

I had the same problem - my kid stuck it in her mouth and then the screen stopped working. I was finally able to fix it by doing the following:
1. I took the remote apart by
a. taking out the four screws under the battery cover.
b. then, I used a small slot screwdriver as a wedge and ran it up the length of the edge of the remote while prying the top and bottom apart.
2. Once i had it apart, I took a blow dryer to it to blow out any dust and get rid of any moisture
3. I put it back together and it was in Safe mode
4. I took out a battery, held down the #2 button, and put a battery back in and got the "Update Successful" message
5. To my surprise, the remote was fixed.

SOURCE: logitech 890 screen went blank

I and thousands of others have had the same problem. My remote is about a year and a half old. Take out the battery and leave the battery out for a good two hours. There are capaciters in the remote that hold a charge for a long time so it is important to leave it out for this period of time. Then put the battery back in (at this point your screen will probably be visible again), connect it to the computer, and re-sync the remote with the configuration stored on your computer. The screen will come back on some 890 remotes after this. Mine did but only for a short period and now its back to just showing a blank blue screen. At the end of the day Logitech uses substandard components in an effort to generate service repair revenue or get you to buy the latest and greatest of their product. Shameful but likely profitable for them.

SOURCE: Harmony 880 universal remote re-charging problem

I took the rubber feet off(4) from the underside of the cradle - removed the four screws and separated the top half of the cradle from the bottom. This exposes the two long thin charging arms and points All one piece). I then took some doubled sided tape, similar to what you use to put up temporary 3m picture hooks and cut four small pieces about 1/8th in square. Join two of the pieces back to back to make one piece (double original thickness), then raise one of the long charging arms gently and place the piece of double sided tape under the head of the arm (ie under the very end where the rounded point is, that sticks though the cradle when reassembled (there are two of these). Do this to the other arm.

Why - by inserting the doublesided tape you permanently raise the arms without bending them - ie they will now stay in that position and not bend out of shape, losing contact again . With the cradle reassembled, put the remote back in the cradle you will have more direct contact with the two charging pins. FIXED!!!!!!!! Good luck1

Mx 3000 universal lcd remote

There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way:
1. Charger is the problem.
2. The docking station is the broken.
3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge.
4. The actual unit is the problem.
It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen.
Let us do some troubleshooting first:
1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken.
2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken.
3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken.
4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged.
5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.

12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
