    sorry you wanted help, I offered to help by buying it off you :thumbsup: my suggestion though would be to read the manual, is there a hard reset somewhere on it or a combination of keys to press to hard reset it.

    no idea how to fix, I just know they are worth quite a bit was looking for a bargain.

    Have you tried to update the firmware, also try to leave the batteries out overnight so it completely discharges itself

    There's a safe mode, you can see if you can access that(hold down power button remove and re insert batteries)

    No problems, i'm running out of solutions though it seems to be a comon problem, most people just say they phone the help centre and they solve it without really doing aything???

    Another solution i've found is to try and update the software using the PC but leave the batteries out of the remote. Also try do re do the initial setup

    Harmony ? dont they make hairspray ? no wonder it's frozen ! ;-)

    Same thing happend to me about a week after I got it, lost my temper with it....almost launched it.

    Turns out its prone to a button sticking... well not sticking but getting caught.

    Felt a bit silly afterwards :oops:
