SOURCE: Garage door sensors out of alignment

The lights are suppost to be yellow (power to photo eyes) and green (lined up).
 1.Check to see if the door is running correctly.
  A. Run the door down and pull the emergency release. See if the door will run easily by itself.
  1. If it runs hard by hand try lubricating the rollers and hinges with silicone spray or some form of lubricant (not WD 40)
  2. If the door is heavy and falls back to the ground, you probably have a spring issue (either broken or needs more tension) in this case call a professional door repair company in your area.
  B. If the door runs fine then check the up force on your operator (the box that hangs from the ceiling). If the light bulb(s) on your operator are on the front and/or back, the force adjustment screw is on the back of the operator. If the lights are on the sides of the operator then the force adjustment screw is on the right side (looking from the back of the operator and facing the garage door). Turn the light blue adjustment screw with the up arrow to a higher number.

SOURCE: My Wayne Dalton garage door will open with remote but not close

your infrared sensor is either misaligned, faulty, or you have a broken wire from your sensor to your door opener. (Flashing light indicates infrared light path is broken). both sensors should indicate green led. door wil not come down is safty feature to prevent door from closing when light path is broken.

SOURCE: How to align the sensor on garage doors

Ok quick question. How old is your opener? There are two little blocks on each side of the door. are they both green? or is one amber and the other green? When I go out to a customers house with this problem the first thing I do is close the door so is a little darker so you can see the lights. Line them up then I good each one a good little tap with my finger and see if ether light will flicker. If so then there too loose or not lined up as well. One side will always be lite (unless there is no power or a cut wire)

SOURCE: One of my garage door sensors is yellow while the other is green.

It means your sensors are properly aligned. Are you having a problem?

SOURCE: Genie Garage door will not

If you hit the button on the remote and nothing happens then you may need to code in the remote. On the motor head press the learn button and then press the button on the remote 3 times.

If it looks like the remote will work the opener or it opens the unit but not close it you are experiencing safety sensor problems. Make sure they are aligned. There will be a light on each and each should be on. Check the wiring to them too. They are not polarized. Thanks BB

Sensors are misaligned. Both must directly face eachother . It senses a false obstruction if not in line. Check for webs, dirt etc, as well as proper alignment. Both should be green.

One of the sensor is on green color the other is on red color and I can't open or close?

sensors need to be aligned with one another , the one that's red now is the receiver and the one green now is transmitter
it is very common for mounting brackets to get bumped and be out of alignment , a little twist and eye balling it and it will work once again

Garage door opener not working

Sensor must show steady light to close circuit and let opener work. If aligned, then there is a loose or broken wire. Try reaiming first to get steady light. Then check all wires . Another way to test and prove that is the issue is if u hold down the wired button at ur back door and the opener closes, then it is sensor issue. Good luck.

Garage door goes up woth remote but will not close with remote

Your photoeye safety sensors are not aligned or have a problem. If you hold the wall control the entire time the door is closing, it should work. Check to make sure you sensors at the bottom of the track are aligned

The lower sensors on the garage door rail are not aligned. Make certain you make an adjustment of the two sensors so they face each other in a strait line.

The safety beam light red or green are not on. the wiring is OK. the door will go up but will not go down without holding the button in untill nthr door is down all the way What is my problem

If the RED and GREEN lights are not on this indicates power is not getting to both sensors. There should be around 11vdc at the two wires going into the master sensor (red light). Yours might be different. If it's not there, test the voltage at the controller. Mine reads 11.4vdc but your voltage may be different for your model; mine is a 1S550/A.
If the voltage is there disconnect the 2 wires from the controller (make sure you have the pair going to the sensor) and twist them together. Then go to the Master sensor (red light) and read the resistance across these same wires...should be around 0 ohms. If not there is an open in one of these wires. 2conductor telephone wire is a good replacement. Watch your polarities.
The factory red + white is normally positive, the all white is negative.
The slave sensor (green light) is connected in parallel with the master sensor.

It sounds like there might be a loose wire connection on the inside of the sensor. You could also be moving the position of the sensor slightly into alignment when you squeeze the sensor. You will need to disconnect the wires for the sensor on the garage door opener or disconnect the power. Then use a flatblade screw driver and carefully seperate the sensor case. Check for any loose connections on the wiring(you might need to re-solder the wire to the sensor eye). It sounds like a loose wire connection to me.
