Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.

Please check a couple items for me and post results.

Next, push and HOLD the wall button, do not release the button until the garage door touches the floor.

One eye is green and the other eye is amber color. I had to unlatch the door to get it down last night. The opener will not work at all now.

If absolutely nothing happens, need to unplug the opener and then wait 5 minutes and plug it back in and try my test again.
