Presumably, you have just ONE door? I.e., don't have a second
opener on which you can test the remote?
Is that the remote that handles *3* doors?
If so, have you tried programming buttons other than the "first"?
I.e., in case the actual "button" has worn out?
Are you getting any tactile feedback from the button? I.e.,
does it have the same "click" and "feel" as the others?
Have you tried erasing all the codes from the opener and then
trying to program? I.e., is the problem in the remote or in
Does the opener do ANYTHING when you attempt the programming
sequence? I.e., does it "see" that you've activated the remote
(even if it is rejecting the programming operation)?
Is the antenna wire visible in the opener?
I took the CFL out and replaced it with an incandescent, solved the
problem of that light not working properly, but didn't improve anything
else. I'm pretty much of the opinion that something on some circuit is
broken which probably means it's beyond my repair expertise. I'm
thinking of going to the big box and getting a new universal remote to
try and if that doesn't work I'll think about using this

My garage door opener never quits working. I either lift the door up, or
pull it down, and my hands always work! :)
I've never had a power door opener, but I believe they have a switch on
the motor device to change the frequency. That's so the neighbor's
remotes dont open YOUR door.
Maybe that switch got bumped and needs to be reset.
Owners manual will help. No manual? Download one.
Ones with limit switches are pretty old models. New ones are either
done with adjusting pots or by software pushing couple switches. Even
motor is DC driven (small but more torque) Remote also is now spread
spectrum rolling code, even syncs. with your car.

That was old-fashioned when I got an opener in about 1996. That one had
12-position DIP switches on remote & opener to set the code. Later, they
went to "rolling codes" and the opener would learn the remote.
