Press and hold the lock button on the wall control for 3 seconds. The light will stop flashing and your remote will work.

Garage Door Remote Doesn't Work


Here’s a problem I’ve run into several times lately- the garage door opener remote no longer works. The good news is the solution has been very simple. Check your wall control.

Is the led solid or flashing? If it’s flashing you’re in luck. The wall control should have two buttons, one with a light symbol and one with a lock symbol. Press and hold the lock button for a few seconds then release. The led on the wall control should now be solid and your remotes will now function.

What’s that button for, you ask? Good question. It is a “vacation mode” setting so that when you’re gone the remote function is disabled decreasing the likelihood of break-in.

Most times no one pays much attention to the lock button; they are usually going for the light button and press lock by mistake.

Now if the wall control led was solid the whole time, this gets a little trickier. Grab a ladder and take a look at the side of the garage door opener where the wire hangs down, that’s the remote antenna. Near the antenna will be the “learn button” where you program the remotes. Right next to this button is an led. Now we can test the remote by pressing the button (on the remote not the learn button) and see if the led on the garage door opener lights up.

If the led lights up but there is no reaction from the opener it may be that the opener just needs to be reprogrammed. Sometimes the garage door opener gets a “brain freeze” and loses sync with the remote. Press the learn button and quickly release it, you now have 30 seconds to program your remote. Press and hold the remote button until you get a reaction from the opener, either the lights will flash or you will hear a click. Try your remote now to see if it works. If you are still having trouble the garage door opener’s logic board (where the learn button is located) may be faulty. This would be a very costly repair unless you are savvy enough to replace it yourself.)

If the led on the opener did not light up you may have a bad battery in the remote, the remote itself is bad or again the logic board is defective.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean


According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.

When charging battery flashes red then stays on red.how long should it take to change to green?.its a dewault9130 18 volt


it doesn't change to green, the solid red light means it is fully charged, there should be a legend on the front of the charger to help you with this. If it flashes real fast the battery is malfunctioning and slow flashing is charging and again solid is fully charger.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Pressing remotes the door won't go u[


It sounds like you have the lock enguaged. When it is flashing it locks out all remote access. Hold the lock button for 3 seconds. The green light should go solid. On the issue of closing, it is most likely a safety eye issue. Hold down the wall button. If it closes it is the safety eyes. Holding the button overrides the safety eyes. Make sure that thelight on both eyes are both lit.

Flashing green light on Sears garage door wall opener HBW0777 1/2


Same problem - The flashing wall button indicates the remotes are locked out. I fixed mine by pushing the green button on the back of the opener. I did nothing else , just left the LED time out.

The remote opener reset button goes off and will not work


The green button is not a reset it is the program button.

If you hold the button down for about 20 seconds it will erase all codes. Then, press and release the button - press and hold the button on your remote for about 10 seconds. the next time you press it it should activate the door. Repeat the 2nd step for all additional remotes.

The lock button on the wall control locks out all radio signals for vacations etc.

If the lock has been activated the green led in the wall control will flash - when the lock is deactivated the led stays solid green.

Hope this helps
