new universal remote

hi

i currently have a Harmony 555 remote but since the last batteries died, it will not work when i put new ones in. the light flashes on but nothing else works. the buttons are not functioning so i think its died.

i can't afford that much but want a very simple one to use all the following with. it must be usable by a g/friend who found the 555 confusing.

Panasonic LCD 32" TV
Marantz CD52 mk 2 cd player - bless it, still sounds great and going strong!
Onkyo 605 AV amp
PS3 - if at all poss.

cheers

Try calling Harmony for a replacement - they were pretty good with a faulty one I had and I am sure it was older than a year.

Nothing to lose to see if they will replace it

EDIT - you'll also struggle to find something cheap to do PS3 as that uses bluetooth not IR or RF.

Pretty sure the adaptor is out now so the Harmony will work with the PS3. Just waiting on actually having some money, but I need one.
