    I have essentially the same problem except my remote is working fine in spite of the "replace batteries" message. It's just kind of annoying.

SOURCE: system error

My harmony remote had the "system error 1"  I called Logitech and they said that it is a hardware failure and the remote is faulty.  After about 3 days they issued an RMA and sent me a new remote with no questions asked.  I didn't even have to send the old one back!  It took them a little while to get the ball rolling, but it did work.

SOURCE: weird battery size

Here's a link on the Directv forums. They suggest putting a small ball of aluminum foil between the positive terminal on the battery and the contact on the remote.

The buttons on my remote don't work and every time I press on certain buttons it won't respond right away.

Have you tried replacing the batteries? Do you see any damage on the remote? Have you spilled any liquids on it? If the batteries have been replaced and it does not work, you may want to try reprogramming the remote control. If all that fails it may need replacement.

Replaced batteries on my Harmony remote and I'm still getting replace batteries message on the lcd

Hi, try updating the firmware.

1. Connect the remote, and click "Downloads" in the software.
2. Click "Firmware"
4. Update the remote.

If that doesnt help then it's probably a hardware issue.

Logitech Harmony universal remote stuck in safe mode

Just a message to all that have problems with there Logitec remotes. My remote went into something called a "safe mode" when my partner changed the batteries while holding the power button.... I pressed every single button to try and get out of it but nothing seemed to work, (I was getting pretty frusterated, there is nothing in the manual to tell you how to fix this problem), however, I have now learnt that as you replace the batteries you need to have the number 2 button held in as you replace the last battery. This works 100% so if you have any trouble with the "safe mode" then this is what fixes it.

ViewSonic RC00136P Not Working

Open the battery compartment, remove the batteries, and examine
the small springs at the POSITIVE end of each battery holder.
Sometimes these springs get compressed and no longer make
contact with the battery. Use a small knife point or small screw
driver to stretch the spring away from the case until it extends
about 1/8". Replace the batteries in their proper orientation and
try the remote. This worked for mine.

Safe mode

To get your 550 out of safe mode, follow these steps.
1. Remove the batteries.
2. Hold the '2' button down.
3. While still holding the '2' button down, replace the batteries.
4. The remote will boot into the normal functionality.

Note: If the 'Off' button is held down while inserting the batteries, the remote will boot into 'Safe Mode'.
