2) Will try to close but will stop 1/4 down and then go back up.

Not sure where to start. Any suggestions?
I get this occassionally. The most likely is what Eric noted - some small
obstruction over the beam. Second, in my experience, is that one of the
sensors got bumped and is misaligned. Check your manual for resettign them.
Thirdly, is a dying battery in your remote.
The sensors (as mentioned in previous posts) are good candidates. My
opener has a resistance setting where it reverses if too much resistance
is encountered. Perhaps your opener has a similar setting and you can
just tweak it to increase the limit? Of course, your door might be
encountering more physical resistance due to a vehicle impact or some
other recent change (in that case increasing the limit may not be wise,
at least not long term).
