Question about Logitech Harmony 890 LCD Remote Control

1 Answer

I have a logitech 890 remote with a R F receiver. for some reason when I turn off the system and then back on it looses the programing for the cable dvr box. I have to use the learn commands function to get it to work again, however when I turn the system off it stops working again. The remote will not control the box either threw the R F or directly until I reload the IR commands directly. Just updating the remote has no effect, I have to do the relearn IR.

The part of the device that stores the data probably has either a battery or a memory retention capacitor that keeps a small amount of power to the memory chip that stores data. It's probably failed. So that when power is lost there is no back up power and data is lost. The fact that you can still store data means it is not the chip itself that has gone.
My bet would be the capacitor rather than a battery. I can show you an image of one, but they might vary in style or specs. Find that and replace it. Note how low the volts are on it.

is the rf extender plugged in?

If so, press the connect button on the rf extender, and then go through the process of connecting to it with the remote.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: IR doesn't transmit

I suggest that you contact Logitech to see if the remote is replaceable. are you out of your warranty period? (This is 90 Day free support and 1 year for the Warranty period) Also, when contacting them, have this information ready:

The PID of the remote:
*found under the battery.
The P/N of the remote:
*also found under the battery.
The PID of the RF Wireless Extender:
The P/N of the RF Wireless Extender:
Full Name:
Phone number:
Street:
City/Town:
Country:
Zip/Postal Code:

also let them know that you have already updated the firmware.

SOURCE: logitech harmony 890 display is blank

this sounds like it is a hardware issue, try contacting Logitech through e-mail from the website www.logitech.com and sending an e-mail in.

try the following before contacting them:
1. Log into the Logitech Harmony Remote Software on your computer
2. Click on the Downloads button at the top-right corner of your screen
3. Click on the Firmware button. Follow the onscreen instructions to upgrade the firmware on your Harmony remote
4. Once the firmware upgrade is complete, click on the Update Remote button
5. Test your remote.
If this doesnt work, provide them with the following to make sure the process goes as smooth as possible:

The PID of the remote:
The P/N of the remote:
The PID of the RF Wireless Extender:
The P/N of the RF Wireless Extender:
Full Name:
Phone number:
Street:
City/Town:
Country:
Zip/Postal Code:

Please Note: The PID (Product Identification) and P/N (Part Number) for the remote can be found either on the underside of the battery cover, or at the bottom of the battery compartment (the battery might be covering it). Your PID number is a character code with a combination of letters and numbers, starting with either WL, WD, or LZ

My 890 is no longer working correctly. It won't


I had a similar issue and only needed to "re-configue" the remote... Basically, just try plugging it back into a USB cord ( connected to your computer) and go to the original programming home page and click the "Update button." It will re-program your remote as if it was new.. Over time your Harmony may lose or forget the frequency of your various components. This happened to me. Also, make sure the remote has a full charge while you're programming it. Give it a try !
