Changed batteries in my garage door opener, now it wont work even after reprogramming it.

Garage Door opener: 139.53681

3 button remote


After replacing the battery in my remote, I can't get it to work anymore. I even canceled all the codes for all 3 remotes and reprogrammed them all to make sure I was doing it correctly. The other 2 reprogrammed and work great.


When I first started I was looking at the remote and noticed a hole in the back of the remote. I looked in it and it looked like a screw. I thought that screw held the remote together so I started unscrewing it. When I realized that screw had nothing to do with opening the case I stopped. I then used a screwdriver to open the case and then changes the battery. I reprogrammed all the remotes and the one that I changed the battery on still wont work.


What is the screw on the circuit board for? Does this change the frequency of the transmitter by any chance? I'm wondering that's why my remote will not work now. Any ideals on how to fix??

I can understand how important it is to have all of your garage door opener remotes working. It sounds like the issue is with the remote itself. The screw on the back of it is just holding the circuit board in place. It will not change the way the remote functions. Since, the other remotes are working, there is nothing wrong with the receiver. I would suggest you replace the remote. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
