Wrong forum. But hey, I'll take a stab at it.

It sounds like your door goes so far down, then stops. Then you hit the button again and it goes back up and stops at the top. Then again, and now it goes to the bottom.

Have you tried allpying WD-40 to the entire length of the door runners leading from the motor unit to the garage floor? Have yo cleaned these runners, then done the WD-40? Are your door sensors (assuming you have them) set up and aligned correctly? If not and they both have little lights on them, if those lights are blinking it probably means they are not aligned right (though this problem often results in the door not responding at all).

Finally, how old is the opener? Maybe the main unit needs work or dare I say it, replacing. But make sure those other issues are checked before running out and spending money on a new main motor unit.

Hope this helps.

Garage door remote stopped working after I changed old battery. The Wall mount has a green light that is constantly flashing. How can I fix this please.

Hi Bev..... on the back side of the door opener motor you will see a button. Get your remote and climb a ladder to where you can push that button. As the light there is blinking, push in the button on the remote. That will reprogram it. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

A problem caused theprogram to stop working correctly. Windows wi

Your problem is a little hard to say. Have there been any power outtages or has you computer been powered-off rather than the regular shut-down procedure. Windows registry and programs can be thus corrupted.

Also computer viruses can disrupt programs so please run for example
Mcafee's free online anti-virus to rule-out a virus problem.

Even if you have an anti-virus installed, it needs to be running the latest virus definitions.

You could also try in programs accesories system tools to select "system restore" and bring back your computer to a date where you understand the problem was not happening. (Try this one last)

Garage Door won't open.

Your only shot is to make sure the receiver antenna ( the one on the opener itself ) is connected properly, clean, and not shorted to anything metal. While you're up there clean off any wasp nests and other dirt and crud which may have accumulated on the receiver or terminals. Hopefully you have a second transmitter which is also range-limited, 'cause if you have one "good" transmitter then your receiver is not the problem. If there's just one bad transmitter, go buy a replacement.

Problem with Compaq Fortran & Vista

I found the solution fortunately:

It's enough to do a right click on the bottom: "Developer Studio" instead of double click, and select: "Run as Administrator" , then select: "Allow" and so on..

Try it, it works!

How do I map my keyboard to record special key sequences?

1) Try this link:

The make a virtual keyboard program for $20

They claim that you can program any string into any key.

2) Microsoft makes a free device driver for their "Natural Media"
series keyboards, called:

" Intellitype-pro "

This driver allows you to execute windows commands using
programmable hot keys.

( I am not sure if this is what you want to do, though)

3) Optimus Maximus makes a very fancy programmable
keyboard, which has miniature high resolution LCD
displays on every key, so that you can dynamically
create your own symbols for each key, as well as
program the key functions, characters or a custom

Optimus Maximus Keyboard = $1800

OK, this costs more than my car, my garage and my wife,
combined, but it sure is pretty !!! :)

You may want to Google the net for cheaper alternatives,
less the LCD keys, or for key translating device drivers.

Hope this gets you started,

Please rate my answers.
