Flashing green light on Sears garage door wall opener HBW0777 1/2

What is causing this flashing green light . The door is not operational using the car remote, and more often than not it won't open using the wall remote either. Sometime the door will open using the wall remote. It just seems to have a mind of its own. this unit was manufactured in 2/93. Is it worth repairing?\ Thanks very much
Dianne.

    I've heard that the flashing green light means that the remote lock has been activated from the hard wired opener control. I was told that if you press and hold the lock button for two seconds it is deactivated, but even after doing that my remotes will not work.

    Pressing the green button on the opener made my remotes start working again. I had the same blinking light problem and have no idea how it got into that mode.

Same problem - The flashing wall button indicates the remotes are locked out. I fixed mine by pushing the green button on the back of the opener. I did nothing else , just left the LED time out.

    This is what worked for me! Thanks so much! Mine is so old school that there's just the "doorbell" button on the wall with the light but no "lock" button, so I just pressed the green button on back and poof, good as new! :-D Thank you!

    Thanks so much for all your help. I fixed my flashing green light by depressing the orange learn button but my remote would still not work. Then I pressed the learn button and then my remote and the whole thing was fixed. You guys just saved me a big bill.

You are correct it locks the door in place and can be unlock by holding the button in place then the light should go solid.

You might have to reset or recalibrate remotes to activate them.On newer units there is a button on back of the opener that you push to reacivate the remotes. Look in your owners manual.Maybe by chance you need a battery?

Good suggestions!
I had the same problem and was going to buy a new printed circuit board until I read these postings. All I had to do was re-program my remote (duh!). Instructions for this are on the rear of the opener unit.

Sounds like you have a couple problems. The opener is in the lock mode which is the reason the remotes will not work. Press and hold for 3 seconds the button on the wall control that has the icon of a padlock on it. This will unlock the opener and your remotes will work. If when you try to close the door the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. One of the small lights on the sensor may be flickering ever so slightly. Tweak them a bit and try. If this isn't the case and the main light is not flashing you can try increasing the down force just a tad. This control is on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Increase this just a bit and try. If this doesn't work you most likely have a bad RPM sensor board which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. It will cause this problem.
