Try pushing down on the remote to ensure that the pins are making contact. If that does not work, you can buy a new charger for the remote from Logitech. They are only $10.

Garmin Nuvi 750 car cradle/charger does not charge the unit. USB charger works, so not the battery. Replaced the cigarette lighter jack and still does not work. Problem must be in the dash mount cradle...


Hi tbrick

if you dont have the original charger, the 750 take a special car charger because of the traffic feature...it has a flat end about 3/4" to 1" long that fits in the cradle, but you can use a garmin usb charger, you just wont be able to use the traffic feature.

if thats a little confusing ( i tend to do that) i try and explain it another way.

if you think you need or want one of those chargers, just post back to me.

My Harmony One won't charge. It's in its cradle. The cradle is plugged in and the light is on. I've wiggled the unit to make sure it is seated correctly. But it simply won't charge. Any suggestions?


I recently had this same problem. The remote displayed a "low battery" warning and could not be used, so I left it on the charger overnight and the next morning, it still had no charge. Everything seemed to be fine (and I verified that it was making good contact with the charger), but it wouldn't charge.

Finally, I pulled out the battery to see if there was any obvious problem. There didn't seem to be, but when I put the battery back in, the remote suddenly started working (and showed about a 75% charge).

So far, it seems to be working (and charging) correctly since then.

Try pressing down on the remote, and wiggling it around. It's just that the pins are not making contact I suspect.

If pressing down helps, you can fasten it on with a elasitc band or something so that it keeps charging. Also, if it is still under warranty, I woul advise contacting Logitech's wonderful support team to get replaced.

Hope that helps!

I have a harmony 880 remote. Won't charge now.


Generally there are three possibilities (apart from the battery going bad) that can cause your remote not to charge:

1) Some folks have reported that the battery is not sitting tightly enough in the battery compartment. You can try folding a small piece of thin cardboard and place it between the battery and the back of the compartment. This will push the battery towards the front of the compartment and create a tighter connection against the contacts.

2) There have been reports of problems with some of the charging cradles in which the remote does not make sufficient contact with the contacts in the cradle. To ensure that the remote begins to charge, place it in the cradle and listen for a single beep. The slide show should start and then, after a few moments the screen should darken. If you hear two beeps at any time, it means that the remote has lost contact with the charging cradle and has 'woken' and is no longer in charging mode. Wiggle the remote to ensure that it is sitting in the cradle and making contact.

3) If you still have trouble after you have tried everything above, there may be a loose connection inside the remote itself. There is a very small plug that connects the charging terminals on the remote to the battery compartment. In some cases, this plug can become loose (especially if the remote has been dropped). Opening the remote and checking to make sure that the plug is completely seated is another thing to check if all else fails.

3) If you still have trouble after you have tried everything above, there may be a loose connection inside the remote itself.

However, most people have found that altering the height of the contacts on the charging cradle is a better way to go. If you want to open the remote, do the following: remove the two screws - one in the battery compartment and one at the top of the remote. Then, using your thumbnail (this is really the best, unless you have a thin, rigid piece of plastic. A part of a credit-card may work), force your nail between the two halves of the clamshell casing near the bottom of the remote on the left or right side. Once you get your nail (or plastic) into the remote, angle it down at about 45 degrees and simply slide your hand up one side. This will release all the locking tabs very nicely without marring the surface of the remote. Then do the same on the other side. Once you are done exploring, simply realign the two halves and snap them back together.

My harmony 1000 remote is not recognized by my mac computer


I had the same problem today on PC with the Harmony 1000. I noticed on the USB cable that mine came with it had a warning red icon (!). 1. install software then 2. plug in USB...

I didn't see this and I installed my software whilst the device was in the charging cradle with the USB cable plugged into my PC.

Before the software was installed I noticed the USB icon next to the Help on the remote screen, this dissappeared when the software finished installing the software and drivers.

I removed the remote from the cradle, pulled the battery out, unplugged the USB from the remote and computer, restarted my PC, powered on the remote, started the software on the PC and then plugged the USB into the remote and then the PC.. it was then recognized.

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
