Question about Home Security
When the garage closes, the light on the box flashes continuly for about 1-2 minutes then stops. Normally when the door goes down the light stays on without flashing for two or three minutes.
Check the electronic eyes that sense when something is in the path of the door, sometimes they can get knocked out of place, something could be blocking them, or there could be a build up of cobwebs in the opening for the electronic eye. Typically when the light flashes it is indicating that somehow the infared beam is obstructed

Most likely your door sensors have been bumped and are not aligned properly. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not blinking.

On the side of your opener you will find the down limit control. Using a small screwdriver turn this control in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. May take some tweaking to get it just right.

You need to check the adjustment for the travel of the door ... All automatic closers have a built in safety mechanism that prevents children, pets and even yourself from being crushed by the door ... so if the travel is set to low the door will hit the ground too hard and safety mechanism will activate opening the door again! Look at you documentation for how to adjust this for your particular model :)

your garage door has saftey sensors at the door
these are photo eyes
in the owners manuel that came with the opener
that has pictures in it which would help
the photo eyes need to be clear of debri and aimed at each other with no obstruction
there are leds on each sensor and when aimes properly they should be light if i remember correctly
if you can not get them to light then you may have to replace the sensors
