Garage Door Opener Not Working On Some Stuff

jhermizApril 26, 2006

Ive got a sears craftsman 1/2 hp garage opener (about 6 years old)

All was fine till last night, one of my remotes stops working...

So I go out and buy a battery for it thinking that was the problem...didnt work...but what I do notice is when I click the garage door opener control (the handheld one with the 3 buttons) the unit on the back has an indicator that lights up, so apparently its getting a signal but nothing else happens the garage door doesnt open.

So I thought I could click this red button on the back of the main unit to reprogram the remote. So I clicked it and the light began blinking 3-4 times, then I held down one of my buttons on the remote and still no go...

So not sure what is wrong with the remote...

Then to make things worse this morning I go out to my truck which has a built in garage door opener right in my yukon. I click the button on that and nothing works, so it appears that is somehow not working?

So I get out of my truck and go to my keypad control on the outside of my garage. I enter the 4 digit codes that I have and click enter and that too doesnt work.

What gives ???

Sounds like the receiver on your logic board has quit working. Could possibly be from lightning in the area. The logic board costs about $80.00 plus labor if you can't DIY. Not good news.

You are definately wrong. I got all of them working except one of my controllers. Is it possible that this controller is bad? I changed the battery on the controller and that didnt work.

Sorry I've been wrong before but this is the first time I have been definately wrong. I really think the controller that isn't working is okay. You just haven't figured it out yet. Keep trying.
