Remote open button died
« on: November 12, 2013, 04:57:58 AM »
Hi guys,
My gal's door remote opening button stopped working. Even the LED on the remote doesn't work, The close button works normally and the the door lock works also normally.
Any ideas? Low battery? Just a dead button on the remote?

Thanks.

-Jude

Unfortunately the remote can suffer damage from being dropped, getting wet, and just general wear and tear.
I would try a new battery first before looking for replacement.

it could be anything from needing a new battery/s to a dry solder to a broken pcb,
just be careful when you open it up for a looksie,DO NOT LOSE THE PATS CHIP.

Seems it was the dummest  fault... Low battery... Now the range increased from 2 meters to 10 meters!
And both buttons working again  :D
