Hi! You should try to update the firmware in safe mode:

1. Remove the battery, press and hold the 'OFF' button, and re-insert the battery. The screen will display 'Safe Mode!', or the 'Activities' button will be lit.
2. Connect your remote to the computer.

3. Launch the Harmony Remote Software, and log in.

4. Click "Downloads" at the top and click "Firmware".

5. The remote will go through the firmware update.

6. Select "Yes", and click NEXT to update the remote.


If it does not go into safe mode, or the firware update will not complete then it's probably a hardware issue. If you're in warranty you can call Logitech for a replacement.
