hi everyone. i've had this garage door opener for a few years now and recently one of the remotes stopped working for one of the doors on my garage out of no where! i thought it was a problem with the battery so i switched it with another remote but no response. i noticed that the green LED button that opens the garage is blinking constantly. that button works, but the remote for the door doesn't work. i cant seem to find the instructions manual either. help is appreciated!

Sounds like someone inadvertently switched you into "vacation" mode which disables the remotes but permits operation from the wall button. This mode is indicated by a blinking light oin the wall pad. There should be another small button with a lock symbol near it on the wall pad. Push and hold this button for a few seconds. When released, the LED should no longer be blinking and your remote should work.

Good luck.
