How to factory reset your Harmony

Factory resetting your remote will clear all user information from your physical remote. Your devices, Activities, and other account information will still be available using the MyHarmony desktop software. If you're not sure which remote you have, you can compare it to the pictures we have listed on our Harmony Software page.

Please be aware

Remotes such as Harmony 600/650/700, Harmony Smart Control and Harmony One have no need to factory reset and therefore do not have the ability to do so.

  1. Press and hold the Menu button (located above the Channel Up button) and the Off button together for 20 seconds.
  2. The remote screen will turn off, then turn on again displaying the image of a remote and a circular arrow.
  3. After a few seconds your remote will be restored to factory defaults and you may sync again.
  4. If you have a Harmony hub‑based product, then you should also follow the steps below to factory reset your Harmony hub.

Unplug your hub and then hold the Pair/Reset button on the back while plugging it back in. The light on the front of the hub will flicker red for approximately 30 seconds as the hub restores itself to factory defaults.
