    Garage door opener going close get flashing lights for 10 seconds door does not close
    When I try to close my garage door by using either the remote or the wall button the door will not close, I get a flashing of the 2 lights at the garage opener for 10 seconds. The only way I can get the door to close is to hole the wall button until the door closes. I need help on this one. Can it be the censers are off as you enter the garage that are near the floor of the garage door.

    Yes sensors could be out of alignment or there could be something breaking the electronic beam.

    Yes, that is most likely a sensor problem. There should be lights on the units which help you align them. Find your owners manual or find on online to help you with this. It's not a big deal, but it's damn annoying.
