The remote control will not operate my LiftMaster model

Customer Question
The remote control will...

The remote control will not operate my LiftMaster model 41A3039. I have a little 51 remote control and did put a new 9 V battery, but it doesn't help.

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I have been operating the garage door lift frequently, but without using the remote control. I probably have not use the remote control in more than 10 years.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can. If it is not simple, then I will have to hire someone.

Hi that remote is probably not making good contact now ......so here is what you can do .........remove the batteries and look for any corrosion by the terminals on both ends.......clean them with a cotton swab and alcohol and wipe with a soft cloth......then go over them with a nail file or a pencil eraser .......replace and try again.............please let me know

Thanks
