As an 880 owner myself, I think this is a common problem and documented out there on the internet.
This has happened to me a lot. (Okay, it's actually stopped now as the charged remote keeps shutting down and going into test mode.) But, back to your battery issue - I believe that the charging pins in the dock don't properly contact the equivalent pins on the back of the remote.
Try cleaning them with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol, then press down. You should hear one beep only - if you hear a beep followed by another beep, the unit has made contact then lost it.
Good luck! I think this really is a design flaw.

My Harmony One remote will no longer charge. I took the battery out of it and place it in my Harmony 880 and placed it in it charging cradle. It started charging. I know it is not a battery issue. Yes...


This is a common problem for these remotes. Constant handling of the remote results in dirty charging contacts located on the bottom of the remote. Oils and acids from your fingers and hands also dirty the charging contacts. Also the contacts on the charging cradle can become dirty and have been known to not make solid contact. I would recommend cleaning BOTH the charging contacts AND the cradle contacts using a Q-tip and some good quality rubbing alcohol.Be careful to just wet the Q-tip and gently scrub the contacts only. Careful regular maintenance should help you resolve this problem. Also you could check the Logitech website for recommendations on how to clean their equipment.You can also try the rubber band trick!! Which is while placing the remote into the docking cradle, listen for a beep which indicates a solid connection. While still maintaining a solid grip on both charger and remote wrap a rubber band around both devices. This should ensure a good connection while the remote is charging! Good Luck!

Charging dock wont charge remote any longer


Hello Sir, hi, we need to know where the trouble is, we have 2 to test, the charging dock and the remote control. to test the charging dock you may need to measure the voltage output of around 5 to 12 volts of the dock using a voltmeter usually used by a technician, Its easier if a friend has another dock. Or get another charging base. follow this link. http://www.amazon.com/Compatible-Battery-Logitech-Harmony-Remotes/dp/B002SLP3X8

Harmony 880 remote won't charge


Hi. The Harmony 880's have a common problem with the charger not being able to charge the remote after a while. This is a common problem and you are certainly not alone. However, there is good news.

If the remote is still under warranty, then you can get it replaced by calling Logitech.

If it is not under warranty, you can buy a new charger by calling 1-800-231-7717. They are only USD $10.

Harmony 880 will not turn any components on


First, check your battery indicator (make sure it's fully charged).  Second, dock your remote with the USB cable and reprogram the remote.  It's possible you disconnected before the programming was properly transmitted to your remote.  Finally, if things don't work, use the HELP button on the remote.  It should talk you through a procedure to fix your problem.

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
