I assume you have a Craftsman or Liftmaster operator and you are talking about the photo eyes (sensors). If this is true thanone light will remain on if there is power to it and the other will go out when the photo eye beam is blocked or are not lined up.

Thank you for your your question bry4man. I look forward to answering any more of your questions.

I have a Ford 1990 f250 xlt 7.5 When starting revs up and down slowly then dies sometimes, why?

Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor(IAC) on the side of it. Mostly the IAC and the hole it sets in. Also check the air filter.

The 'hand' on screen

Make sure that the Sensor Bar is setup correctly:
Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
Verify that the Wii Remote is being used between 3 and 8 feet directly in front of the TV, and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
Verify that there are no bright light sources, including sunlight, behind or near the TV, shining towards the Wii Remote or reflecting off the TV screen. Also verify there are no heat sources (such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, stoves, etc.). If there are bright lights shinning directly behind the TV or on the screen, turn the lights off.
If problem persist your Wii Remote need service.

Garage door does not reverse

Hi again, Thank you for getting back to me, this indicates that the main unit is OK and one or both of the sensors is bad. The basic principle of the safety circuit is that the circuit is complete or connected until broken by an object, There are several different types of sensors the most common is an led transmitter on one side and an optical receiver on the other, which shines a beam of light that requires the sensors to be aligned to "see" each other. The light on the sensor indicates that it sees the beam and if you wave your hand in front of it, it should go out indicating that it doesn't thus breaking the circuit. The light constantly on indicates something shorted in one of the sensors. You could probably hook them up one at a time to see which one might be at fault but then again you would want to replace them as a pair, and a new pair of sensors should put you back in working order. Good Luck, this should Fixsya!

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Code E020 on a NP 4050

How about this, Take the developing unit out and take the ATDC sensor out and plug the hole up in the developing unit. Reinstall the developing unit and cheat the front door switch and plug the sensor back in and hold it in your hand and make a copy. Dose it vibrate? If it dose not the sensor is bad... If you really get tired of working on the problem and you don't go to the copier to often and they are not billable, try this.... Take the top cover of the dev. unit and spoon toner into the dev. unit till it is almost full and reinstall it and clear the error code in service mode and just remember to add toner in to it every so often.
