Get all the remotes together.
On the end of the GDO (where the wires are) is a "Smart" button.
Press and hold the smart button for 10 seconds (until the LED goes off). This will clear the memory.

Now press and release the smart button, take one of the remotes and press one of the buttons (usually the top, largest one). The light should flash on & off.
Perform this same procedure for all other remotes. Also do the same with the keyless entry. Always press the buttons slowly on the keyless entry. It is easy to mispress a button.

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.

You can reset the code but it sounds like it may have just failed. Make sure the battery is good and try more than one just in case. To reset the code:

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.

You will have to have access to the outside keypad and the motor head. Make sure there is a new battery in the keypad. Press the 3 -6-enter buttons at the same time to erase. Then press 357-prog, then press the 4 digit code-prog. Then go up to the motor unit and press the learn button. Go back to the keypad and press the 4 digit code followed by the up/down button, press the up/down button 2-3 more times and the door should move. If you have a black keypad this will not work, ask again with this info if needed. Thanks BB

Garage door pad


You need to press and release the learn botton (don't hold it or you will clear all the codes)
If the light bulb(s) on your operator are on the front and/or back, the learn botton is on the back of the operator. If the lights are on the sides of the operator then the learn botton is on the right side (looking from the back of the operator and facing the garage door). 
After you press the learn button you have about 30 seconds to press in the new 4 digit code in your key pad then hold the enter button until the light on the operator blinks (about 2 seconds). If this does not work check the battery and try it again.
