Harmony One - Upgraded & Enhanced!
We’ve been repairing and upgrading Harmony controllers for over 11 years now and, for the Harmony One, we’ve identified the three main issues that plague this model and have addressed each one on these upgraded versions that we have for sale:
The LCD - a known issue on the Harmony One, it is prone to cracking. Even without a drop or impact, there have been hundreds of reports of the LCD spontaneously developing dead pixels, hot spots or cracking. We’ve literally replaced thousands of these LCD modules and our replacement LCD is brighter, has more vivid colors and a better viewing angle than the original. More importantly though, our LCD is virtually indestructible! The LCD we use is slightly smaller than the original – 2” vs. 2.2” and this is the main reason for the durability. The mounting brackets do not touch the glass, and the module is not subjected to the same flexing forces as the original. Will you be able to see the difference in size? Most of our customers say ‘no’, and those that can, tell us that it is not bothersome in any way! Take a look at the comparison photos and you can judge for yourself.
The tilt-sensor (aka ‘motion detector’) – this sensor is supposed to ‘wake’ the remote when it is lifted. On many Harmony One’s, the sensor is marginal (if it works at all), and it makes an annoying rattling sound. Sometimes, customers think that something is broken inside due to the noise! If you’ve experience a finicky or defective tilt-sensor, that works intermittently or requires ‘rock and roll’ to get it to engage, then you will love our replacement sensor - silent and works effortlessly!
The ‘soft touch’ rubberized back cover - known to degrade over time, peel and delaminate and become ‘sticky’. Once this happens, cleaning is ineffective and the coating can be difficult to remove, as Logitech used a variety of different formulations. Some solvents will be effective on some covers, but not on others. We remove this problematic coating so you won’t need to worry about it! There may be some light scuffing from the removal process, but our refurbished back covers will never peel, delaminate or become ‘sticky’.
Our upgraded Harmony One controllers are in excellent cosmetic condition and typically only have very minor wear. Functionally, they operate perfectly and, in cases where a problem arises, or your expectations have simply not been met, there is a 90-day warranty. Refunds or exchanges are easily and happily provided! Please note that these refurbished and upgraded units do not come with any of the accessories and include the remote only - no battery, charging cradle, etc.
Are we 'out of stock?' We generally post limited inventory so we can make sure we have enough to go around. If we show none available and you are interested in having one, just let us know. We can often have one ready within a couple of days of the request!
