I bought a 650 a few weeks back and it is constantly resetting. If i tap the bottom of the remote, it resets and then is out of sync with my current activity. I think the battery is loose. How can I fix this or can I even do anything about it?

You could try pulling the prongs out a little farther so that they are more snug when battery is installed.

I would return it, but I don't have the box or receipt
Then check out the following FAQ on submitting a warranty claim.

I have two of these remotes and I was having the same problem with both. The batteries lose their connection when the remote is set down because they are not held tightly within the remote casing. I took a sheet of toilet paper, folded it up, set it against the back of the batteries and closed the lid. This holds the batteries snug inside the remote and I no longer have the problem.

Unbelievable, I am also having the SAME problem. Sheesh, I already returned one Harmony 650 due to a distorted LCD screen, and I thought I'd have to return this one as well.
But I took the advice of a previous post and put a thin piece of foam on top of the batteries so that the battery cover fits more snugly over the top. So far that has fixed the problem.

These batteries can generate a fair amout of heat, so I would use caution regarding the use of very thin tissue paper, etc. A couple of small rubber shims with a little double-stick tape should do the trick.
