Harmony 890 remote: Where can I buy a new base charger for the remote? The adapter feeds it power, and there is a new battrey in the remote... but the base is NOT making contact with the remote.

    With new battrey, teh remote works and battrey discharges.


    Used to be you heard a tone when the remote was corectly in the charging base. No sound now.


    Remote has three brass contacts on its bottom side.  One of the brass tips is worn.  Maybe the issue is the contacts and not the base.


    Question:  Is a new base available for purchase?


    Is a new handheld remote available, without buing the whole system again?

You still need to clean the contacts on the remote every now and then as they are small and recessed, and they can get gunk collected on them and cause it not to charge very well.

For the base charger go to this link

Hope that helps.........

Befor buying a new base, try cleaning the contacts with isoproply or rubbing alchol and use a q-tip, besure to clean both sides, the base and the remote.

Good Luck

Let me know if this works

HOW DO I GET CHARGER TO CHARGE


Hi.
Unfortunately, the Harmony 890 and 880 chargers have a design flaw that makes the remote slowly become unable to charge. One way that I get around this with my Harmony 880 is to attach an elastic band around the remote when it is in the charger, so that it does not lose contact. You can also purchase one of the new chargers (Logitech redesigned them) for about 10 bucks US. You can order it by calling the Logitech sales line which is 1-800-231-7717.

HARMONY 890 REMOTE WILL NOT CHARGE. I HAVE NEW CHARGER AND NEW BATTERY


Hi, This is actually a fairly common issue. There is a design flaw with the 880 and 890 chargers that causes the pins to no longer make contact after a while. Good news is that to buy a replacement charger is only about $10.
You can try pressing down on the remote, and wiggling it around. It's just that the pins are not making contact. If pressing down helps, you can fasten it on with a elasitc band or something so that it keeps charging.

Harmony 890 just went dead. Nothing. Nada. Not


I have an 890 also. I've found that the remote doesn't always charge when it the charger. I have to put a rubber band around it and make sure it shows that the the battery symbol on the display is showing that it charging. Or the battery isn't taking a charge anymore and I'd try to replace it. Doesn't really hold a charge very long either.

Charger Base Doesn't Charge


I just had the same problem, went to best buy and got a new 890 and tested the old remote with the new charger, the new charger has a different design slightly, has only two pins and no center pin on the charger. its charging the old remote now so its definitely a design flaw. Not sure what to do now tho.
