Question about Logitech Harmony 890 LCD Remote Control

1 Answer

My Harmony 890 remote is slow to respond and in an attempt to locate the menu, I somehow changed the settings for my tv. So now, the screen is cropped, with a black border around the tv picture. How do I fix this?

Hello,

If the remote is slow to respond, then probably the battery in the remote is weak.

At this point, you need to reprogram the remote with the TV for it work function properly again.

I suppose you know how to reprogram the remote with the TV, but if you don't let me know so that I can teach you how to.

Good luck.

Display on 890 remote is faintly lit. I have a new battery and cradle, have updated remote (firm/soft)....nothing. Remote does work, but you can't see display, so you are enabling the 'force'...


Not worth repairing, contact harmony and they will give you a coupon for 50% off a new remote. The 900 replaced the 890, although I prefer the 890 the screen is a lot better on the 900.

My Harmony 890 remote has a difficult time inputing numbers


Hi. This problem is caused because the 'repeat' setting on the device that you use to change channels (TV or cable box) is too high.

1. In the software, click 'Troubleshoot' next to the icon for the device that you change channels on.
2. Select '<device> responds to some commands either too many times or only occasionally' and click NEXT.
3. Decrease the setting by one (the default is usually 3).
4. Update your remote and test it.

Adding a second Harmony


Account migration from a Harmony 1000 to 890 is not suppoted, though it may work.

1. In the software, click on the 'Remote Settings; tab.
2. Click 'Manage Remotes'.
3. Connect the 890 and click 'Replace Remote'.
4. Update the remote.

Like I said this is not supported by Logitech, so if anything goes wrong they may not help you out with it. The saftest way to get your 890 set up is to create a new account.

The Harmony 890 turns the TV on and off, but it does not do the other functions.


Hi. You can learn the buttons from the original remote so that they work

In the software, click 'Learn IR' next to the icon for your TV. Follow the on-screen instructions to learn the buttons.

Hope that helps.

I have a logitech Harmony 890 remote. The battery


To check to see if your device is controlled by a RF (radio frequency) or IR (infrared) remote:

Power the device on manually

Cover the front of the original remote that came with the device with your hand

Press any button on the remote that you know the device would respond to normally

If the device responds even when your hand is covering the front of the remote, the remote is RF and the device cannot be controlled by the Harmony remote


Another test that can be performed is using digital camera:

Using any digital camera, even one on a cell phone, camcorder or webcam, look through the screen of the camera at the front of the remote

Press a few buttons on the original remote

If you see flashes of light as illustrated, the remote is IR and the Harmony can control it. If the remote does not flash, this original remote is an RF remote and the device cannot be controlled by the Harmony remote

For comparison, try the same steps with a remote control that you know is working correctly, such as the original remote for the TV, or DVD player. You should see the IR emitters flashing when performing this test.

The power flickered on and off last night and since then I cannot get my Harmony 890 remote to change channels. We have Direct TV. It will control the volumn and turn the tv on and off, but will not...


You DirecTV device may have been reset ack to RF. You'll have to make sure the device is set to accept IR commands in order for the Harmony remote to work on it.

Cannot turn off closed captioning on my Sony Bravia using my Harmony 890 remote


If the setting provided by the Logitech data base for your Bravia model is not working use the original Sony remote to have the Logitech "learn" the correct code and assign it to a button or to a screen menu "button". The instructions for "learning" are on the Logitech web site when you log in to your account.

Changes 2 channels at a time


I can help you with your Logitech Harmony 890 remote control.

The Logitech Harmony 890 remote control is programmed through the
Harmony Windows Setup Software.

I recommend resetting it up with your components to get rid of the two channel problem.

Once installed, you will simply run the program and select the devices you would like to control from menus. This program finds the right codes for you and loads them into your remote control.

You can get a copy of the Harmony 890 Manual by clicking here.

I hope that helps.
