Question about Logitech Harmony 880 LCD Remote Control
Your remote charges in a base, is the tv very old or new, if its under warranty check where you bought it, if its not, see if you can replace the batteries in the remote, they will get old and malfunction, they are probably small batteries like go in a heraring aid or computer, if there are several, one can go bad causing the others to go bad, clean the terminals on the pad and remote, use a pencil eraser, to clean them, sometimes they spill coke or just your hand can contaminate the conections.Matt

There is a trick with these remotes. Take a tiny piece of paper and
wedge it in between the battery and the side of the battery compartment
opposite the battery contacts when you insert battery.
This will apply more pressure between battery contacts and remote.
Now your harmony should properly charge up overnight.
Had the same problem with mine and the paper trick fixed it.
Was even able to use the old battery again.
Has something to do with the three contacts on the battery.
All 3 need to make good contact.

Testimonial: "didn't work with new replacement bat all that happened was the test process and press -> symbol and then I get a red circled ? in the top right"
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!

The early 880's had problems with the charging circuit. For a while Harmony was replacing these units even outside the waranty period. Not sure if they are doing this anymore. However your remote is recognizing that it is in the craddle because the slide show starts which means the charging circuit in the remote is not passing power onto the battery or the battery is not making a good connection inside the remote. I would pull the battery and clean the little contacts in the remote and the contact pads on the battery. If you have a volt meter I would pull the battery and check voltage. You should see around 4 VDC on the 2 outside copper pads if it is charged. If it is charged and the remote is not working then its time for a new remote. If the battery is dead then it is likley the typical charging problem of the 880 is causing the failure. Hopefully cleaning the contacts both inside the remote and in the charging craddle will solve the problem. Use alcohol and a q-tip to clean all of the contacts.
