| No dip switches inside the remote means it's the opener that needs to
| remote code, not the remote that needs to learn the opener's code.
| Follow the original programming instructions for the opener. Something
| press a button on the actual opener (might be behind an access door) and
| labeled "program" or "learn", usually the GDO light will flash to
| it's ready to learn the code. Then press the button on the remote to
| the opener that's a valid code. Lights flash again to ackmnowledge it's
| received the signal and learned it.
Mine doesn't flash. I think I need a new transmitter. Thanks.
