remote stops working and button wall flashes.turn off power and reset unit and it works again for a while. seems worse in warmer weather. genie garage door opener model 1024
Power reset is most likely a coincidence. It is more likely that your sensors are blinded by sunlight on dust. This only happens when the angle of the sun is just right. By the time you reset, the sun has moved on. Clean the eyes of your saftey sensors and make sure their alignment is good. Good alignment will have both sensor LEDs lit AND blocking the sensor communication will cause the sending sensor to blink a code & pause -blink a code & pause.Please tell me what you observe.
resetting the power does make a difference. this will happen while I am away at work, I come home and the remote won't open the door. I go to the garage to leave for work and the button on the wall is flashing, the door will open if I push the button but the remote does not work. The lenses are clear and free of blockage. after cutting power and turning it back on the remote works fine. there is no rhyme or reason to when/why the button flashes and the remote won't work. the unit is two years old and started doing this about a year ago.
Sorry, I failed to be clear. I will leave for work and the door will close fine. When I return the door does not open until I go through the house and press the flashing button. Then it will open. The button continues to flash until I turn off and then on resetting the power. This same scenario has happened over night too. After resetting the power (off and on) the remote will operate the door as designed.Is what you are saying is that the only reason the button will flash is because there is a safety issue involved? Is it possible the circuit board has a fault? Could the radio receiver have a sporadic/intermittent failure?
Yes the flashing should be code. Count the flashes between pauses. There is nothing sporadic about this happening every 10-12hours (first at work, then overnight). Yes the board is commanding this behavior- probably falsely detecting a safety issue.Count the flashes.
The flashes are about 2 per second, steady, no pause
It may be a bad wall control console. Disconnect the console from the opener and operate by remote- tell me how the opener responds to this.
not sure I follow, all I have on the wall is a button and it feeds into the circuit board in opener itself where everything is located on a single board.
Somewhere, usually right by the door that leads into the house, is a wall console made of 1, 2,or 3 buttons. There is a wire from this to the opener. Disconnect the wall button console from the wiring. If that corrects the problem you have a bad circuitboard in the wallconsole. If that doesn't correct the problem, disconnect the wires from the back of the opener's terminals for the wall console. If that corrects the problem you have an intermittant short in the wiring.
It is a one button type with two wires to it, its a simple 'make' circuit. If the circuit board is bad then the whole thing will have to be replaced, I can't trouble shoot it at that level without schematics and tools
Relist: Other.He has suggested a few things to try but nothing concrete short of replacing the circuit board which is why I went here in the first place to see if it could be resolved without going that far. If someone else has an idea I'm open to it, all the details are in my previous postings.
Disconnect the wire from the one button first. If that ain't it,disconnect the wire from the opener. We don't need no stinking 3 buttons for this test
This is a single button system. It will start blinking at any time and the remotes won't work. I turn power off and back on and the remotes work again for a while. I am looking elsewhere for an answer to this problem. I am sorry but you have not helped me find a solution.

Ignore the Martin reply- I got your link mixed up with another customer. You must eliminate the possibility of a faulty button and faulty button wiring- either will cause the opener to make the button flash.
I went elsewhere and received the same answer. Thanks for your efforts.
You can thank me for my efforts by erasing the "poor service" rating you gave me. That dragged down my positive feedback rating. You can do that by rechoosing "helped a little".
I don't have "helped a little' as a choice shown to me in the "smiley face" array. Your service was not poor nor was it okay. You tried and I appreciate that but it did nothing to solve the problem. I would gladly pay for the service if there was some part of it I could use but there was nothing in the several exchanges we made that were beneficial.
Disconnect the wall button wiring and just use remotes for a few days to see it this behavior stops. If it does, it's the wiring. Reconnect wiring with wall button disconnected. No problems = BAD wall button
I've already done this as advised by someone else yesterday. We are done, you were not able to help.
That someone else was me. This is the fifth time I have asked you to eliminate the wiring as a cause. We are done. You refuse to follow my diagnostics, and I do not argue with my customers.
No you didn't I went to another site. We are done, you were not able to help.
