garage door opener issue
i have a liftmaster garage door that wont close. when you hit the start button, it starts and reverses very quickly and then the light flashes 10 times.
this code indicates that the safety sensors are out of whack. neither of them light up, so this seems like a reasonable diagnosis to me.
i tried just shorting the connection the sensors make on the back of the opener, but it does the same thing.
really id be happy just bypassing the sensors altogether. i dont have kids or pets that go outside, so the only things that might be damaged is property, and im ok with that.
short of pulling the sensors and trying to figure out what they do, does anyone have a suggestion or something i might try? im not otherwise sure of the condition of the opener, so id rather see if i can force it to work before i go and spend money on it.
