Garage door remote problem

Posted by jasonmpa (My Page) on

My garage door remote in my car will open the garage door, but it will not shut it. I have to shut it using the button in the garage. Further, when shutting it with the button in the garage I have to push the button in the whole time or else the door will just stop. Any idea of what is going on?

RE: Garage door remote problem

Those photo eyes at the bottom of the door are out of alignment. One should be a solid green or maybe amber or yellow depending on how new the opener is and other should be a solid green. Either way way both lights need to be on at the same time in order for the door to close. Try playing with them a little bit until the green light on the recieving eye is glowing a solid green.
