It sounds like you may have a problem with the eyes at the bottom of the door jam. These two eyes must be aligned so the light from one is picked up by the other one. Sometimes they get bumped by accident and need to be re-aligned. Check at the top of the eye where it is touching the metal bracket. If it has been moved the plastic pin on top of the light sensor will be out of the hole in the metal bracket. carefully move the plastic light body until it snaps into the hole on the metal bracket. Then try the remote. If that doesn't work, check both boxes on each side of the garage jam. one should send out a light beam and the other one should receive it. Try this. In the dark put a piece of paper in front of the unit that is NOT sending out light the beam. Line up the light beam with the receiver hole on the side of the unit. move it around until it shines into the eye on the side of the other unit. Try the opener. See if solves your problem. If I get to a point like this where nothing I try works I get out a tool that always fixes anything, my checkbook. Good luck. :)

Sounds like a problem with the safety photocells, to confirm locate the where the safety input is on the opener and bridge out the terminals ( not the supply voltage terminals) if the door then closes the photocells are the problem.

Inside the car press the 2 outer buttons on the homelink until the led light by it goes out or flashes rapidly. This erases all old/factory codes. Hold the remote 1" from the button you want to program and press the button on the remote and the homelink button until it flashes rapidly. Then press the learn button on the motor head and then press the button on the homelink you pressed before 4 times and this should code in. Thanks BB

Flashing lamp typically indicates safety sensors are misaligned. The up/down arrows on the unit will flash codes that are more descriptive. Download your owners manual from;

Sorry, I can't do that.
All you need to do is ensure your door can get a good signal from your router. Ensure theyare paired and the door software will do the rest.

Garage door remotes are at the mercy of any interference that other devices emit. If you have a florescent or LED light bulb anywhere around the garage or in the opener, change it out for a regular bulb.

Observe the green receiver sensor while the door travels. If it blinks, then likely the optical sensor is causing the door to return to open and flash for 5 seconds.This could be caused by poor sensor alignment or a loose track or loose sensor mount or poor wire splice if not a single length.

You can check receiver sensor alignment by slowly moving your hand, open palm, towards the center of the receiver blocking the transmitter emitter mounted to the opposite track.

Check in two axis, front-back and top-bottom. If aligned properly, the green lamp will turn off as your hand reaches near equadistance to center of the receiver regardless of direction.
