Both sensor lights (one green & one Orange are working. The door won't shut unless I hold the main switch until it is completely closed. The remotes do not work to close the door...just the main button. I've tried EVERYTHING from lube to alignments...nothing is working. I get the same light blinks 3 or 4 times after the door fails to shut and retracts back open. CAN ANYONE HELP!!!

If when closing the door
it reverses to the open position and the main light flashes 10 times
it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the small light on each sensor
is on and not flickering ever so slightly. (check closely) Tweak them
a little even though they may seem to be okay. Check for 5vdc between
terminals 2 and 3 on the rear of the motor unit. If there is no
voltage or if it is greater than 6vdc the logic board is bad.
If when you try to close the door the main light flashes 10 times and the door starts down and then reverses to the open position you have a door sensor problem. Make sure the lights in the sensors are not flickering ever so slightly. The color of the lights doesn't mean anything. The keypad sounds like a separate problem. Make sure the battery is good.
To my knowledge, the opener will not work without the sensors. They are there for the safety of anyone or pet that might wander under the door while it is in motion. They also will stop the door if there is an object in the path - if it is more than 6" in height.
The most common reason that the green light is off is that the two sensors aren't aligned with each other. One sensor sends out a light beam that the other receives; the completed circuit is made by that line of light not being broken. The sender has an amber light.
Try moving the sensor up/down or forward and back unitl the light comes on. Check both sensors. I've often seen them get out of alignment if someone bumps into them when trying to walk out the door around a vehicle. If you still don't get the circuit, check if the control wires are undamaged and properly connected to the opened. These are usually the white and white/black wires and could be damaged at the staples that keep the wires against the wall and ceiling.
I have the same problem. It appears to be the interlock switch on mine. Had you had problems with the door not shutting properly & therefore not starting unless you slammed the door? If so could well be the same thing. The new piece cost less than £10.00 including P& P so worth a try.
i had an amp that did the same thing your amp should not be doing that i dont know how old it is but mine had internal overload switch in it which kicked on if the amp was getting to hot and in my case i would say it was because of i had the amp bridged to a set of of some 100rms 4ohm speakers very nice speakers but by bridging the amp i was over loading the ohm load to the speakers and that was cause of my amp light staying the color that its was it was an old alpine amp with duo B circuitry but i hope you get your situation with this amp straited out check your contecions and if its bridege make sure the amp itself is not over heating cause that can be a problem you dont want mess with that.
You have a door sensor problem. Either your main light bulb is burned out or you don't have one in your opener. The clicking sound you hear is the relay for the light. Both of the door sensors should have a small light that is lit. Tweak them until they are.
The colour on the sensors doesn't change. One is orange constantly and the other is green when detecting a signal from the orange sensor. If the green is flickering, they are not adjusted correctly.Move the green sensor until you get a good solid green. Holding the wall pad button down, just bypasses the sensors.
Try adjusting only the sensors so that they are solid.
In addition, check the little yellow light on the back of the machine and count the flashes. The number of flashes will tell you what the error is in your manual.
Holding the button down just bypasses the sensors. Your sensors are not adjusting correctly, or there is a short in the wires. The back of the machine has a little yellow light, count the flashes and corelate it to the troubleshooting portion of the manual to confirm.
The orange light is a constant, the green sensor needs to be adjusted until you get a solid green light.
