Question about Building Materials
I bought a new house and inherited the previous garage code. I found the manual, and reset the 5 digit code, which worked wonderfully. I then went to next section to program a new code, and everything seemed to be working. But when I went to put the code in, it will not work. The instructions i used were to :Open cover halfway, press and hold PROG & 8, open the cover, the LED blinks once... release PROG and 8 and close cover. --- That worked because old code does not work. Then to make a new: Open cover fully, LED lights, enter 3-5-7, press PROG, LED flashes, enter desired code, press PROG, LED flashes 2x per second, and close cover. I do that, and when i go to put the new code in, nothing works.
You are missing a step. It sounds like you have a genie intellicode black wireless keyless entry unit. The final step is to program to the opener. When you open halfway and press the prog and 8 keys, youve unlearned the unit from the opener. Lets start over. Complete the previous steps and then finally, press the code or learn button on the opener. There is a red LED light next to it which will flash after pressing it. Within 30 seconds, type your new code and press the up/down or enter button on the keypad. Then press the up/down or enter button a second time. Programming is complete!

I've never seen the first set of steps you mention. You always need to press the "learn" button first so the opener will be in the mode to capture the new code. As far as I know it is not necessary to hold the Enter button on the keypad (at least I never have). While the "learn" LED is lit on the opener, just key in the new code and press Enter.
Maybe you should try clearing the receiver first by pressing the "learn" button and holding it until the LED either goes out or starts flashing (depends on model). Then try reprogramming. Maybe the little computer is confused.

Seems you've done everything right. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over and key in a 4 digit code and press enter. If you are sure the battery in the keypad is good then I think your keypad is on the fritz or the wrong one for that opener.

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.
