Hi,

Does anyone have a garage door opener that looks like the one below?

This is a photo of our opener through the garage window. We can't find our spare remote and this one is locked inside the roller door garage. The only way in and out of the garage is through the automatic door. I think these openers have dip switches inside to select the code, so I presume that if I can borrow a remote from someone then I can get into my garage without breaking a window.

Unless someone has some other ideas.

What were you ever to do during a power cut. Ours has a key on side of garage. Turn key pull out lock that is attached to the manual override course. Pull cord detaches motor from drum and lift door

So i got the little keylock out (attached to a long wire).

 

Eventually got the motor to disengage. 

 

Spent 1 hour trying binary codes from 0 to 255 on the replacement remote prior to this but couldn't open the door.

 

Replacement remote is now working, but you have to hold the button down for 1 sec and it's only 80% reliable that it gets the code with 1x button press, so I think either I got unlucky and it didn't pick up the code, or I wasn't pressing down long enough when i was cycling through all the codes.

 

 

 

If anyone is wondering, the remote in the original post is 303 Mhz, 8-dip switch remote.
