Question about Chamberlain Powerdrive PD422D 1/2 HP Security Plus Screw Drive Garage Door Opener

3 Answers

Chamberlain garage door opener unit-is it compatible with craftsman keypad?

We have a Chamberlain garage door opener and a craftsman keypad outside the door. Is this keypad compatible? We have a third garage door that still has the original Craftsman garage door opener also-is there a way to program the old garage door openers (Craftsman) with the Chamberlain garage door opener unit, or do I need to buy extra openers (we have several teenage drivers!)Thanks,
Linda

    I just installed a new Chamberlain garage door opener, but none of my old remote control openers will work, and even when i try to program them using the smart button on the opener, nothing happens. The old remotes are for the openers that I originally installed about 10 years ago. Will they not work with my new opener?

    I have a similar problem with a twist. I have a Chamberlain wireless keypad which I purchased about 2 years ago. I just recently purchased a Genie garage door opener and wondering if my older keypad will work with the new Genie opener or if I will have to buy a new one. I can't test the keypad vs. the opener until it's installed. If it doesn't work then it would have been a better deal for me just to buy a garage door opener with a keypad included.

    Describe your Problem:

    Craftsman 1/2 hp opener with safty sensor.
    I replaced the drive/worm gears, before the replacement everything worked, after replacement, with a no load condition the trolly will travel about 12" toward the down position and stop and return to the up position making contact with the up contact. The status LED flashes 5 times. The safty sensor green LED are on bright. I swopped out the RPM board, the safty sensors and the logic board, and I have reversed the polarity of the safty sensors with no luck

Hello,Linda well this is your lucky day ,I have installed garage door openers for sears for 10 years and i can tell you that craftsman,chamberlain ,and liftmaster are all the same machine and manufactured under the liftmaster name , if you buy it from home depot it will be a chamberlain ,if you buy it at sears ,it will be a craftsman, and if you go to commercial building supplier it will be a liftmaster! now getting that out of the way even though they are all compatible ,there is one thing that stands in their way and that,s time ,For example if your chamberlain machine is 5 years old and you went to sears last week ,the chances of the frequency being the same are not good , most likely you have the wireless keypad , one way to test the sears keypad against the chamberlain machine is to locate the smart button on your machine ,this button allows for programming of remotes and keypads , to test and see exactly what im talking about take your remote and locate the smart button ,if you have three buttons on the remote press one of the buttons that are not being used on the remote ,above the smart button their will be a blinking light ,if you press your remote button you will notice the light go from a blink to a rapid flash , This is telling you that you are sending a signal for programming to the machine , well the keypad is exactly the same all you have to do is push the enter button on the keypad and have someone watch for the rapid blinking light ,if they are compatible the light will blink rapidly on the machine so all you have to do now is have someone press the smart button once on the machine your indicator light will now be a solid light you will have approx 60 seconds then to put a 4 digit code in the keypad and then press and hold down the enter button on the keypad , at this point you will notice the lightbulbs on the chamberlain machine to shut off and come back on this is to tell you that the machine accepted the code , after thats been done you can use your keypad , you can also find the owners manual to the chamberlain and follow the same instructions to programming the remote , they are identical in programing , if your keypad is not the same frequency you can also tell by looking at the frequency code on the backside of the keypad and also the chamberlain unit usually where the light bulb is will be its code

Chamberlain makes Craftsman so yes, they are the same. Depending on what color the button is on the opener will determine which remote can be used. I suggest using Liftmasters universal remote control and you wont have to worry about this anymore.

There are 4 diffrent remote/keyless technologies with Chamberlain/Craftsman most likelythe old remotes will not work with your new operator. But you can try to clear out the codes in the operator (push and hold the learn code button for about 20 seconds) then try programming the old remotes.

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo


Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.

My ripspeed incar dvd player has got no picture but has got the sound what can i do to make this work


First thing comes to mind is a possible update to the system. Have you had it for a while now? If so, you should go to the computer and go the maker of the unit. Check under software updates or downloads to see if there has been a remedy or fix that the maker has published, if so...then do as it says to do and see if this resolves the problem before you get into the actual technicals of the unit. It may need nothing more. I hope this helps.

RCA CABLES


RCA cables are the best way to get the audio from your head unit to the amp. If your head unit doesn't have RCA outputs, you might be able to use the speaker outputs of the head unit to connect to the "high power" or "high level" inputs of the amp, if the amp has such inputs (check your manual).
