Question about Building Materials
The password is lost, so we need some factory default reset procedure.
Have tried to resetting per the door openers manual? Instructions for reprogramming are on page 35 and 36 of the 139.18595 manual. See this helps. use the link below for the manual.

Testimonial: "The manual helped, but unfortunately I do not have the premium control console shown to complete the re-program. Since it is just switches, I think I can duplicate what it does with jumper wires. Don't worry, I have managed to work on high voltage power distribution switchgear for over 30 years, without incident, so I can survive jumpering the controls of a garage door opener. Thanks!"
Jim, I am not familiar with this particular pad either, but have you given this a shot???... On the back of the motor unit near where all those white wires go you will find a button. Press and immediately release that and then walk over to your keypad and enter a four digit code of your choice and press enter.

Testimonial: "Yes, that will work with (almost?) all openers made in the last 15 years, but this animal is "special". It won't even transmit any NEW code to the opener until the Password code is entered first, and it is the password we are missing. I have also seen keypads for motorized driveway gates, that work with this master password lock. Fortunately they can be reset by removing the battery, but the garage door version does not reset when the battery is removed and replaced."

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.

what keypad are you using with new opener? Frequency has changed. can't use old one. you probably never needed to change things; just needed to follow proper coding procedures.

What you are asking for is not possible. You need to call a garage door repair technician. They will drill a hole through the door and using a special tool can pull the rope to release the door.

If the following instructions don't work and you have a good battery the keypad has failed.
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 your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.
