Most automatic garage doors have a release cord on the track inside the garage, ear the motor unit. Pulling this cord releases the door from the opener mechanism, and will allow opening of the door if the opener malfunctions or power is lost.
Almost all garage door openers have a switch mechanism that will allow you to open the door manually. It is usually a pull cord on the motor or track. Pulling it down usually deactivates automatic mode. Just pull it up into position when the electricity comes back on.
Usually there is a hand-switch where the arm from the door connects to the Drivescrew. It will often have a cord hanging down that you can pull to disengage the arm from the screw. It's there so that you can manually move your door if the power goes out. If the drivescrew spins and nothing moves, then you probably need to get on a stepstool and click the lever back up to re-engage with the screw. Good Luck!
The problem may not be the garage door opener, To determine this, Pull the emergency release to release the door from the carriage. (The red cord that hangs from the opener) Now you can press your garage door opener to see if your motor works. If it still does not work, try unlpugging the opener from the power source for approx10 seconds. This should reset your motor.
If the motor works, the problem is with door and not the opener and you need to consult a professional who can help you with this.
I think what you mean is you pulled the rope to open and close the door manually and now you can't get the two halves of the trolley to reconnect. If so, pull straight down on the rope and release. Then run the door so the two halves of the trolley connect. You may have to do that last step manually. If this isn't your problem post back.
