Re: How to dismantle a Harmony One

I have only seen one post about it...and after they tried the screen wouldn't work

so be very careful

Samsung LCD HDTV (LN52B750), Scientific Atlanta HD DVR Cable Box (Explorer 8300HD), Panasonic BluRay Player (DMP-BD55), Onkyo Receiver (TX-SR806), XBox 360, Nintendo Wii, SlingCatcher....all with my Harmony 1100 w/ Wireless Extender
Samsung LCD HDTV (LN40B640), Scientific Atlanta HD DVR Cable Box (Explorer 8300HD), Panasonic Blu-Ray Player (DMP-BD60), SlingCatcher, Monoprice HDMI Switch (HDX-501)....all with my Harmony 900 w/ 2 Blasters

Re: How to dismantle a Harmony One

Well yes I could be carefull If I had a manual. My guess are that there arn't anyone and people that ''has to'' take it appart has to find out the hard way and that many times make it impossible to putt together again as you probably have to brake it to find out how you realy should have done.

 

I have had a couple of remotes during my 50 years of living and almoust everyone have had tp be cleaned sometime. 

 

Wonder why Logitech dont let us know.

I haven't come across any remote or similar device with instructions for how to dismantle it!

Re: How to dismantle a Harmony One

Hello dfgds,

 

I highly discourage dismantling the Harmony One.  I am aware that many other users have written stories of opening and repairing/cleaning their remotes with success, but this will void your warranty.

 

If you are outside of warranty, we obviously cannot stop you doing something you wish to your own property but the Harmony One is not simple to disassemble like the 880/890 were.  Those remotes had 2 screws, and 8 snap-clips (4 on each side).   There was quite a bit of room, and once the case was open you could easily put it back together.

 

The Harmony One was never intended to be opened. You'd have to peel off the sticker in the remote to get to the screws there, and then rip/peel off the soft touch back of the remote for those screws.  This is snap-cliped and glued onto the remote.  Once this comes off (if it comes off in 1 piece) then it wil just never be the same again.      If you manage that part the innards are pack in tight, and most likely you break a LCD screen cable or something else once inside.  Again. Not recommended.

Re: How to dismantle a Harmony One

 why is it made so difficult to dismantle ? is it because you dont want people fixing it like the 880 and 890?

Not a problem to dismantle the Harmony One. But of course, warranty is long gone when this is done. Good luck :-)

Final point: Logitech had better simply describes how to do it than officiously explaining why shouldn't.
