Stuck in safe mode?

On most Harmony remotes, safe mode is accessed by holding down the Off or OK button while your remote reboots. To exit safe mode and remove the "Safe Mode" notification, reboot your remote by removing its batterys and then putting them back. If your remote uses non-replaceable batteries, hold down the Off button until your remote turns off. Your remote will automatically reboot. Do not hold down the Off or OK button(s) as your remote reboots.
