Re: Garage door opener receiver problem

Ok. Both the re-route antenna and trying reset/relearn codes suggestions will have to wait until tomorrow when there is more daylight for me. Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'll report back on results tomorrow.

Edit: Lithium batteries? On the logic board? Just want to be clear since I am not using the remote opener transmitters. Am using the SmartHome openers built into our respective cars and also have a numeric keypad from (Sears brand) outside my door which uses a 9V battery.

Does the keypad still work? Is it wireless? Do the OEM remotes still work?

You may have to brain dead the SmartHome transmitters along with re-learning all the remotes in the receiver of the remote.

The remote keypad is wireless and is on the door frame of the garage door on the outside. It worked earlier yesterday afternoon, but seems to now to also not be working.

As for CFLs, I extinguished one nearby CFL and the tubular fluorescent lights in the garage as part of my diagnostics with no effect. The door itself has a rugged-duty incandescent bulb in it.

No close by military installations. Well, Dobbins AFB is a couple of miles away. But again, one door works, not the other.

I'm going to get started today. I work in a home office so can mess with it some during down time to try the antenna re-route and relearn remotes. But I'm just about convinced that its the logic board. Will report back later on results.

My parents' Genie receiver board died last year... more expensive to replace the board than to buy this little guy...

It is marketed to take old dip-switch openers and upgrade them to rolling code but works great as a replacement. just a thought if none of the troubleshooting works
