I have a Logitech remote control for my tv, etc. I am a little technology challenged. However, there are 3 devices controlled by the one Logitech remote. today, I was increasing the volume on the Logitech - it went quite a bit higher volume and locked down in place. No moving volume up or down, and the mute does not respond either. I must now change volume on TV itself. any ideas what I did?

Thank you for writing back with that information. Did you install this remote to your computer for management of its features?

I did not connect to computer

Do you want to connect it to the computer that you are using right now? Or do you want to just troubleshoot directly with the remote?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
lets try to troubleshoot without connection first

Ok. Please give me a moment to pull out your remote's specification.

Ok, let us try to control your TV only and see if the remote can do it. Here are the steps:

  1. At any time, press the DEVICES button to shift to Device Mode.
  2. Once in this mode, the Harmony remote will display a list of all the devices you have in your configuration.
  3. Please select your TV from the list and the Harmony remote will only control the TV.
  4. Now try pressing the Volume Up and Down buttons and see if it controls the TV volume this time

Thank you! Please make sure that you select the DEVICE that you want to control with your remote so that the buttons will control the selected device.

I hope that helped.
