The remote does not open the door. The hard wire button does. I tried the remote on another door and it works o0n that door but not on the other 9ne. The battery in the remote is new. I tried the reprogram directions in the manual. The led on the opener plinks like it is supposed to but when I hit the button on the remote it does not stop blinking until it "times" out. What do I do next? Does it need a new board? Let me knw please. Thanks
It sounds like the receiver in your circuit board may have gone out. I would try to unplug the unit (the whole garage door opener) for about 30 seconds, then plug it back in. Then try the remote. If this does not work, based on what you have done, the circuit board would need to be replaced.

We lost operation of door opener during a thunder storm. Assuming control board took a hit. How can I test the control board? Model 2022

Model 1022 .....light wont go out??
This could be caused by a few different things. In order to eliminate these, here are a few steps to try. First, you would want to remove the wall button from the wall. Then take the two wires off the back of it and leave them off. You would then want to run the unit with a remote, then wait at least five minutes and the light should time out. If they do go out, you would want to replace the wall console. If they do not, then you would want to remove the wall button wires from the powerhead. Again, run the unit with a remote, wait the five minutes and see if they go out. If they do, you would want to replace the wall button wire from the wall button to the powerhead. (This is 18 to 22 gauge doorbell wire) If they do not go out after both of these then the circuit board would need to be replaced in the unit.
One of my garage doors (both Model 2024) is operating very slowly ever since the breaker in my garage got tripped. When I switched the control boards with the other door, the 1st one was back to normal and the 2nd is now slow. That gives me a fair degree of confidence that the issue is with the control board. Is there any way to test and be sure?
Based off your troubleshooting you have done, you are correct. The control board would need to be replaced.
My garage door (Genie 1024) is running slower than normal
First thing we would recommend is unplugging the unit, wait one minute and plug it back in to see if that resolves the issue. Also, using your owner's manual make sure to check the door balance of your garage door.
