Hello, Debbie -

I hope you have the user manual for your garage door opener so you can check it to find out what the beeping sound means. If you don't have the manual, you can add the name of the garage door opener manufacturer to your question by using the Edit feature, so that I or someone else can look up information specific to that particular make of garage door opener.

Many instructions I have found for a variety of makes of garage door openers state that the beeping can mean the back up battery for the garage door opener needs replacing. See the information here:

Since you did not specify make or model, replace button, check wires to button. The are plenty of guides on line. Google your question.

I am not aware of any manet thing on a garage door opener so you are going to have to give some more information.

I had the same problem. Although it appeared to be the logic board, on mine it actually was the connectors between the logic board and the power supply board.
There are 2 connections on the logic board. One white connector with wires going to the main unit, and another set of connectors that plug directly into the smaller circuit board that holds the step-down transformer (120vac - 22vac). These pins were not making good connection between the boards. I simply bent the pins slightly so they would make better contact on the logic board and have not had a problem since. This must be a weak point on these door openers. Purchasing a new logic board would work too, as the connectors are newer and tighter.

If you're having to hold that inside button down to bring it down that is because of your sensors being out of alignment. On the bottom left and bottom right of your garage door track are your photo eyes and if they're not cleaned and pointing toward each other, then they will not allow the door to close. It will only close with the inside button because it is hardwired and when you hold the button down it shoots a continuous current that bypasses Those sensors. Remotes and keypad are wireless and must have photo sensors aligned to work

The original Legacy opener came out with a static 390 mhz frequency radio receiver that utilizes 12 security dip switch settings. The model number of the Legacy openers are shown as 496 or 696. You will be able to locate 12 little switches inside an existing remote control or on the backside of the garage door opener motor.
That opener remote will not work. You will have to call Overhead door, or replace GDO with upgraded security and home link to use opener in car overhead. Step 2 lists openers that the glicker will work with.

You need to go on line to see what series you have. There are several different radio units under the same model number.
