Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.
Do the remotes operate the door to open and close?
Or does it go to close and then reopen?
The wall button must be held to close only, correct?
Do the safety eyes have small LED's lit at this time?
Make and Model of the opener will assist to find the correct specifications.
It is on a nameplate either on the front or rear of the opener.
Let me know and we can continue,
Ok, thanks for the information.
On the safety eyes, when are you getting the blinking?
If it is when the door is still and not trying to operate, you need to align the safety eyes, they are out of alignment.
The LED should be SOLID at all times, never blinking unless you put something in the door way.
Same for when the door is moving, if they blink for even a split second, it will cause the door not move to close.
See if you can get them aligned and on and then do a retest on the door closing.
Post back results and details if further issues.
Always blinking means they are not communicating with one another.
It appears you have a bad set of safety eyes and they need replacing.
Need to follow the wires all the way back tot he opener and be sure there are no nicks, scrapes or cuts.
The same color wire on each eye combines together and then to one terminal on the opener.
There hasn't been any work performed on the opener or eyes lately has there?
Is there are only 3 terminals on the back of the opener?
Seems odd with 3 and the eyes sharing #1 with the wall button?
Ok, so you moved the safety eyes and all is working or you misread and the problem is still existing?
Ok, very good, that great news.
