Question about Chamberlain Powerdrive PD422D 1/2 HP Security Plus Screw Drive Garage Door Opener

2 Answers

Door will only close when held down

Got the Chamberlain Professional garage door opener model 41BD002-2 & have to hold down button to close it until it goes all the way down. Tried moving sensor with orange light & it still won't change. Any other suggestions? Reinstalled opener at a new location- was working perfect b4. Now that I have reinstalled the problem is:

when I push the opener it very briefly attempts to close and then stops and makes 4 to 5 clicking noises and then stops. If I hold down the button it will close smoothly until I let go of the button and then it opens all of the way again and makes the same 4 to 5 clicking noises. Even if I hold it down until it closes all the way it wont stay down - it opens back up.

The problem is in the sensors at the bottom of the tracks. They both should have lights on them one orange, sending, and green, receiving. In almost all cases theres an indicator on each side to let you know that sensors are positively aligned. Check wiring.
The only other problem I have seen is if the opener has gotten damaged by a power surge or lightning. The safety sensor part of the computer board on the back can get damaged, and maybe a sensor or two but, everything else works ok.

Sounds like the gear drive is getting worn.
also make sure the track are free of any debris.

Just bought a car with this stereo. Was working fine and then I accidentally was messing around trying to figure things out and put it in demo mode. Now it's stuck!! Can someone please help?!?!


With the stereo on, hold the large round button in to get to setting menu. When it gets to that, I believe clock adjust comes up first, just turn the knob to get to demo mode and then push the button in. Turn the knob to switch demo off and then push it again. That should do it.

JVC KD-R330 Won't turn off Demo mode - tried instructions. Every time I follow the instructions (Turn on, Hold Menu, push "vol" button, change to Demo off...etc) It doesn't work. In fact, as soon as I...


Hi,

Do you have a Bluetooth adapter plugged into the KD-R330?

A compatible Bluetooth adapter (like the KS-BTA100) usually plugs into the rear auxiliary port of the receiver. It then needs to be "paired" with your Bluetooth device, for example, a Bluetooth phone headset.

What you're describing sounds like what can when no Bluetooth device has been "paired" yet.

If you don't HAVE a Bluetooth adapter connected to your KD-R330....is it possible you accidentally plugged something into its rear auxiliary jack? Or the front auxiliary? In other words, is it possible your KD-R330 receiver is mistaking some other device for a Bluetooth adapter?

Don't know if that helps at all...if there's no adapter issue, and nothing connected to the AUX jacks, probably your next step should be a call to JVC, or whatever number you were given for tech support.

On the bright side, since the receiver turns on, and responds to some commands, you probably didn't mess up anything major in the wiring. And, there's also the possibility the receiver is defective....certainly if this continues, and JVC can't help you, trying a replacement might be worth a try.

BTW, feel free to post a reply...I'm going to look further to see if there's any other documented issue besides an adapter that might cause the problem you're having.

DVD won't place discs


Did that just begin out of nowhere? IS the Dvd spinning, if you listen closely and the player is making noise as well? That would be the lens trying to get a read on it but if it's scratched (I'm sure you tried others) sometimes the lens just go bad out of nowhere...Mu original 500 Sony PS1 in 1998 lost its lens about 3 months in...I can't think of anything else right this moment....I hope you fix it...

Can't switch to the auxiliary


try useing it.. plug your aux cord into whatever your using (mp3 player) as maybe your radio won't switch to aux until it senses that there is audio being played through the input aux cord?
