Customer Question
Well the backlight on...

Well the backlight on the harmony 900 remote used to come on when you grabbed the remote. Now you have to pound it or actually touch the screen with your finger to get it to light up.

Technician's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
