I have had the same problem, I ended up replacing the IR LED's in the front, and it fixed it - I have no idea why they stopped working, LED's are supposed to be good for at least 10,000 hours continuous use.
Strange, but since buying a replacement was $200 + and the LED's were around $4. it made sense to replace them...
Hope this helps.

Why Am I Unable To Program The RCA Remote Control To Operate My Components


Why am I unable to program the RCA remote control to operate a component? Why am I unable to program the RCA remote control to operate a component? If you are unable to program the remote control to operate a component, review the following information:

Compatibility
If none of the programming procedures work, the universal remote control may not be compatible with your components, based on the type of infrared technology and the age of the components. Some RCA universal remote controls will only work with components manufactured after 1990.

Distance
If you are testing the remote control after you have entered a code, you may be too far away from the component or you may not have the remote control aimed directly at the component. Because the remote control uses infrared (IR) technology to communicate with components, there must be an unobstructed path between the remote control and the IR sensor on the component.

Code Entry Methods
If the Direct Code Entry method was used to enter the codes for your brand and the unit is still not functioning properly, try one of the automatic code search methods instead. During automatic code search, the remote searches for the correct code to program.

Modes
For the remote control to know which component you wish to operate, you must put the remote control in the correct mode by pressing the corresponding component button.

Combo Units
To program the remote control to operate combo units, such as TV/VCR’s, TV/DVD’s, or TV/VCR/DVD’s, use the combo codes in the Code List to program the individual corresponding component buttons. Once programmed successfully, the TV button controls the TV functions on your unit, and the DVD or VCR button controls the DVD or VCR functions, respectively. The codes in the combo section should be tried first, using the Direct Code Entry method on the TV and DVD or VCR buttons. If this is unsuccessful, use one of the Code Search methods to program your combo unit.

Batteries
Make sure the batteries are new and properly installed.

My logitech 890 stopped working my components. The lights are on the remote. The help key goes through it's normal functions. The remote appears to work but components do not respond. What do I do?


I would reset the remote to the factory conditions and then reload your specific configuration onto the remote. If that doesn't work I would suggest RMA'ing the remote with logitech if possible.

Won't change channels. Batteries are fine.


The remote does not operate your component?
  • You must put the remote in the correct mode by pressing the corresponding component key (TV, VCR•DVD, SAT·CBL) so the remote knows which
    component you want to operate.
  • Remove any obstacles between the remote and the component. Make sure to aim the remote at the IR sensor on the component.
  • Make sure the batteries are fresh and are properly installed. (See Battery Installation on page 3 of the User Manual). Replace the batteries with two new AAA batteries, if necessary. Reprogramming may be required.
  • Reset the remote. Remove the batteries, then press and hold the number 1 key on the remote for several seconds to reset the microprocessor inside the remote. Release the number 1 key, reinstall the batteries, and press the ON·OFF key. If the LED indicator light turns on, reprogram the remote and try again. If it doesn't light up, replace the batteries with new ones.

This and other details can find in the troubleshooting-the-rca-rcr350-universal-remote-control

I hope this help to solve it (remember to rate this answer) Good luck,

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.

My Sony remote is RM-YD024 - I am trying to find the code for a Denon DVD player, Norm.


Here are all the codes for your Denon DVD player.


30490, 30634, 31634


Just in case you don't have the manual I also included the steps to input the codes.
Hope this helps

Follow these steps to program the remote control.
NOTE: Even though the FUNCTION buttons are labeled for specific components, they can be programmed to operate any type of equipment that is compatible with this remote control. For example, the BD/DVD function can be programmed to operate a VCR, AV receiver, etc.
  1. Turn on the component to be programmed.
  2. On the remote control, press and hold the INPUT button.
  3. While holding INPUT button, press the FUNCTION button for the desired component.
  4. Release both buttons.
  5. NOTE: The FUNCTION button will blink for approximately 30 seconds or until a code is entered.
  6. Using the number pad, enter the component's manufacturer code.
  7. NOTE: If more than one code number is listed for the manufacturer, enter one code at a time until you find one that works.
  8. Press the ENT button.
  9. NOTE: The FUNCTION will blink twice if the programming is successful, if not, it will blink five times.
  10. Point the remote control at the component.
  11. Press the component POWER button to verify operation.
NOTES:
  • If a new code number is entered, the code number previously entered will be erased.
  • When the batteries are replaced, the programmed codes may be erased. It may be necessary to reprogram the remote after replacing the batteries.
  • Some product functions may not be able to be controlled by the remote control. Use the remote control provided with the component.
  • In some rare cases, you may not be able to operate your non-Sony equipment with the supplied remote control. This is because your equipment may use a code that is not provided with this remote control. In this case, use the remote control that was provided with the equipment or purchase a universal remote control that has a learning function.
  • If programming fails, it may be necessary to reset the remote control. To reset the remote control, remove the batteries and press each button on the remote control twice.

I have this RCA remote and I misplaced the guidebook.


You must first find out why the remote control is not working properly. These remote controls have been having problems with new batteries. The battery holder on the positive side need to be adjusted out to make sure its making contact with the batteries. This may be the reason the remote control is not working. After you find the problem with the functioning of the remote control you can go to the RCA customer support website http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1769&p_created=1209688350&p_sid=6-sdxLAj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9ODE4LDgxOCZwX3Byb2RzPTE1OCZwX2NhdHM9MCZwX3B2PTEuMTU4JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1yY2Egc3lzdGVtIDUgcmVtb3RlIGNvbnRyb2w*&p_li=&p_topview=1 find the codes for the components you want to use with the remote control. Use the codes to make the remote operational . This should be all you have to, if the remote control is working properly. If you cannot get the remote control to work properly, you can call the RCA customer support at this telephone number 1-800-645-4994. Give them the model number of the remote control and ask them for assistance with the problem. I hope this information help you with the problem you are having with your remote control. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

Harmony 890 will no longer operate the tv, dvr,or sound


I had a similar issue and only needed to "re-configue" the remote... Basically, just try plugging it back into a USB cord ( connected to your computer) and go to the original programming home page and click the "Update button." It will re-program your remote as if it was new.. Over time your Harmony may lose or forget the frequency of your various components. This happened to me. Also, make sure the remote has a full charge while you're programming it. Give it a try !
