Multifunctional control panel will not work when i tried to synchronize door control and light bulb on garage door does not light up?

I'm not familiar with the whisper drive but I would start with the most obvious place for a problem. There are two units at teach side at the bottom of the door jam. They have to be lined up for the door to work. This is the most frequent problem I have found because they are close to the floor and can be bumped out of alignment. Check to see if one of them have been moved. Most of these little plastic units have a plastic locator pin in the top of the unit. these pins snap into the mounting bracket. If the unit has been bumped just move the pin until it snaps back into the bracket. I'm not a contractor but I have seen this happen a lot with friends and family. Ask the easy questions first. Is it plugged in? Is the breaker in the power panel tripped? Good luck

if you are using the new florescent bulbs they don't always seat deep enough. Unplug the opener remove the bulb in the bottom of the socket there's a metal tab use your finger or a small screwdriver and bend/lift the tab up a little bit. this should fix your problem

Chamberlain whisper drive bulbs keeps burning out

I had a similar problem on my Liftmaster units made by Chamberlin. I would leave the garage door open for hours during the day so our dog and children can enter the house through our garage and laundry room. Everytime they come into the garage the Light's would go on because of the safety sensors are "tripped" at the bottom of the garage door tracks.
I turned off this feature and my lights are lasting much longer now. Over 1year in fact. To turn off and on this feature, make sure the opener light is off, then Press and Hold the Light Switch on the Wall Control Until for about 10 seconds till the light goes off. This deactivates this sensor from turning the lights on, but does NOT deactivate the sensor for Stopping the door if something is under it. Safety is still preserved.
Additionally, my door opener would vibrate while operating, and need to be aligned - I did this and also prevented the bulbs from "shaking". As we know the light bulb filaments are brittle especially after some use - this I think also helped lengthen the life of my lights on the opener.

My chamberlain Whisper Drive HD600 garage door opener Light's click but do not go on. The door is working fine.

Probably just a burned-out light bulb. The "click" you hear is the relay closing. Replace the bulb. *Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle.

How can I disconnect the motion detector on the Chamberlain 3/4 HPS Whisper Drive Plus Belt Drive Garage Door Opener with EverCharge

There is a button on the side of the wall-mounted remote. It has a pic of light bulb next to it. Press it once - the motion sensor is on and the lights will be on once it senses the motion; press it again and the motion sensor will be off.
