Has anyone successfully disassembled a Harmony 785?
I need to take mine apart so I can fix and unresponsive Ch+ button. I've tried removing the four screws and prying apart the sides, but when I get around 3/4 down the remote the two halves don't seem too keen to release. I'm worried if I force it I'm likely to damage the circuit board or something.
I had a go at one of these a year or so back If i can recall there are 2 hidden screws behind the silver plastic strips that run above the side buttons you will have to damage the strips to get to the screws and then be careful as the ribbon cable connecting the screen to the pcb is very short and delicate Mine wouldnt connect to the pc to update and was out of warranty so knackering it more didnt matter as i had to purchase a new one I am not sure i could get on stripped down and put back together without damage to the unit Hope this helps Mat
I have just recently dismantled my Harmony 785 remote and there are the 4 screws behind the battery cover and there are also 2 screws up the top behind the black plastic front, either side of the activities button. You need to peel back the black cover to reveal the 2 extra screws undo them and then the remote comes apart quite easily, just beware of the charging terminals as the wire is not very long, but they do plug into a little connector on the main PCB. Hope this helps anyone else in the near future. If you require I can take photos and post them to illustrate what I mean.
