Only in winter time, the door will only open a few inches to half way up, then when you hit the button again it goes to shut, but if you hit it again right away after it begins to close then it will open all the way or if i lift on door with minimal effort it will open
I have run into this problem before this might be of some help
check your track and see if someone has greased it if so get a rag and solvent and remove all grease from roller track this track is never to be lubricated in the summer grease thins and lets dooor move but in winter grase hardens and acts like glue binding door past set limits.

have a problem which returns every year when outdoor temperatures drop close to freezing. garage door will open only a few inches, then stops. I can close it and try opening it again... same result. After five or six such attempts it typically will open. Interestingly, when I push the switch button mounted on the interior wall of my garage and keep it pushed, the door will open, until I release the button at which point it stops opening.
Probably your battery is bad. either charge or replace that and then learn the windows again. (have you got your radio code before removing battery?) to learn the windows do them one at a time with door closed. hold the down button you hear a clck a few seconds after it opens fully now hold the up/close button and again wait for the click. easiest is to hold the button pressed for 10 secs after the windo has fully traveled down then send it up and again 10 secs after it stops moving.
I had a similar problem last few days with my ZR60. The problem I had was that the tape won't eject and on repeated attempts to eject it would eject as if it had a mind of its own. I was messing with it a little bit and realized that the door was not opening fully. Being a delicate item I didn't realize that I was not fully opening the door may be because there was a little friction in the pivot pins or what ever. Try to gently swing the door open fully and see if it helps. Since I discovered this problem I tried 10-12 times, and every time it would eject the tape and load it. I was almost going to give up this camcorder last night thank GOD, I am able to use it. Good Luck to you.
I had the same problem when it was cold the door would only raise a few inches and I had to keep pushing the opener numerous times before it would raise all the way.
On the back of the opener where the wires are connected there are 2 adjustment screws, one for up pressure and one for down. I increased the up screw and now it rsises all the way. Hope this helps.
same problem, after you hit eject is pops out and never opens up, to the right of the "push" button is an arm with a spring, pushing it back will open that side, on the left side is a pin with an arm you can move the arm back the pin moves and the other side will open as well, wont fix the problem but will get you your tape back. I have a very upset wife, we had a jvc mini DV went out one winter change in temp killed it instantly, now our canon has sat a few years and wont work either,
we bought a flip video, it works.
Make sure the door springs on the door are ok.Unhook the opener from the track by pulling the red handle rope on the track,make sure the door moves up and down freely.There is a up-force adjustment on the end of the opener that the small wires run to,you will see 2 slotted adjuster screws,find the one labeled up force,turn it clockwise a little bit(1/16th of a turn).Also there is a plastic gear inside the case that gets dry,unplug the opener,remove the 8 screws that hold the case on and lube it with a lithium grease,see if it is worn badly while you have the case off.
