I own a craftsman 1/2 Hp garage door opener that has a motion detecting control console mounted on the wall. The light will not stop blinking and the garage door opener will not operate. The light will not even come on. The manual does not have a trouble shooting section and of course I want to investigate more before paying for needless repairs or replacement of the product. The opener is about 3 1/2 years old.
Thanks for any suggestions

I'm unclear of your problem. But here are some ideas. If the light is blinking on the motion detector that senses if anything is blocking the area immediately beneath where the door closes, the sensors may be misaligned. There should be a sensor at one end and a light emitting from the other side. They need to be pointing right at each other. If the situation is that you have a blinking light on the panel that's mounted, say, near the door that leads to the inside of the house, press and hold the buttong that has a picture of a LOCK on it. If you have such a button, it is used to lock out ALL remotes (for say when you go on vacation, you don't want someone's random remote opening your garage door). When it stops blinking, your remote should work again.
