MVP50 Allstar Linear Opener blinks rapidly
I have an Allstar MVP opener--about 3.5 years old. Yesterday I went to close it, and it started down and stopped abruptly and then opened up again. Now it will not do anything--with either keypad or remote. I cannot even get it to detach manually. Power is going to the unit, however. I looked at the back of the power head and the green LED was off, but the red one was blinking. I went to my manual, and here's what it said:
Fast Blink: Contact reverse
Short fast blink: Decode RF signal
Now--I have no idea whether this is a fast blink or a short fast blink, but beyond that, I have no idea what "contact reverse", or "decode RF signal" means. I looked at the whole manual, and then tried to search online, but have come up empty and confused. I really don't want to pay a lot of money to a repair person unless a part is required, but am at the end of my abilities here--can you help?
Since I have been disabled for more than 17 years I am not up to date on some things, such as this. But perhaps (hopefully) if I go ahead and post your question someone still active in the field will answer for us.
