Trying to charge dm620 recorder but flashes "please wait remote" I don't have a remote and I can't charge the unit

If it's like the DM-420, you have to read in the instructions to 1. put the device in 'Hold' and 2. then press the stop key and while keeping the stop key down, 3. plug the usb cable into the device. You'll still get the "Please Wait (Remote)" message but you'll also get the Orange LED charging light to turn on and the word "Charging" will appear at the top of the display with the universal "battery is charging" icon.

Do you leave the the wii remotes on the chargers at all time or do you take them off once they are fully charge

Hi there, the Wii remote charger stand has a smart charging system which means that once the batteries reach full charge capacity the charger will stop charging them. You will cause no harm by leaving the Wii remotes on the charger all the time.

Hope this helps

Wii remote is not charging. I have 2 remotes, one of them does not charge. Basically, when I charge it, it charges for a few seconds then it turns to the green light (meaning it's done charging) so it...

If you have had the "battery" for a long time, it could be that it can no longer carry a charge. Rechargeable batteries' charge grow shorter over time. If you still use the Wii/Wii U regularly, I suggest rechargeable AA batteries+charger (If you don't have them already). AA batteries work in other devices so even if you stop using the Wii, the batteries will still work in remote controls, clocks, flashlights etc unlike a WiiMote Battery pack.

Any known fixes for Logitech Harmony 880 universal remote when docking station won't charge a fairly new battery.

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.

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!

2003 Chevy Impala. Changed the door remote & still not working

If your dealer is nice they may charge about a half hour of labor. Most charge about an hour. I would guess $50-$100.

Remote not working

What happened before it stopped working? Are you sure the batteries are not damaged?, some new batteries don't have charge in them, a factory defect.
