Garage door all kinds of problems

Worked great until we were required by code to sheetrock our garage...

Now it wont go down without you holding the button that normally you touch once and the door opens or closes. Release button and it reverses with flashing light. Seems to me that by holding the button we are perhaps overriding a safety switch

I now have one sensor that flickers. Even when realigned it flickers.

Guessing that the sensor has gone bad.

Problem solved after checking all the wiring for damage etc etc.

The receiver sensor had been knocked out of vertical alignment. I'd only checked the horizontal alignment.

Problem solved

best of all at no cost
