Over the past weeks, especially last week, not so good for Bitcoin. Bitcoin had dropped > 25% in price. From close to $500 to $380s. Now it’s holding steady at $380s range. I cannot make a good guess what will happen in term of price for Bitcoin this year, because it could be anywhere to anywhere. Most people think the price of Bitcoin dropped because of the news about one of the core developer related to Bitcoin Blockchain quit! and went to another job.
On the other hand. Ethereum digital coins, also known as ETH had been performing pretty well over the past weeks. The price had gone from below 0.002 BTC to 0.004 today, however it used to be at 0.004 anyways. So those that purchased the coins at 0.002 would have made 50% profit within a week or so, that’s not bad at all. Most people believe the reason ETH goes up is because homestead is coming out, it supposed to be better and most speculate it will raise the price of ETH, but other don’t think so, it will remain the same, if anything then just a small push or short period of time pump.
This may fix any garage door remote control, and maybe other remote control also that uses the rubber button or push button.
In my case, I have a Genie garage door and one of the remote control is working fine. The other one doesn’t. I found out the contact rubber that trigger the circuit to send a signal open and close was dirty. So I clean it up with a cotton swap and some rubbing alcohol and voila, back to normal.
Ensure your remote control is not damaged like water, or drop and cracked, or the code frequencies problem. Ensure you have good battery. This fix is simple fix for remote control that have dirty contact rubber inside the circuit board. You will need to open the remote control, just crack it open in most cases, some case would required you to use screw drivers tools. If you don’t have alcohol, you can use just plain cotton swap or even tissue, do not use water, I think it will damage the circuitry or oxidized it.
The code I’m talking about here is the transmitter and receiver. There are two types of code, one is fixed and the one is rolling.
If you have a garage door opener system that uses fixed code then you’re in luck of getting any universal garage door opener remote control replacement. Because it uses fixed code and chances are in the 433mhz.
If you have a rolling code garage door opener system then you will not be able to use the fixed code universal replacement remote control. I have not come accross any universal garage door opener remote control replacement for your rolling code system yet. I don’t think it’s that easy to find if it even exist, because if it does exist then there will be great opportunity for home robbery.
If you have a rolling code, you might need to contact the manufacturer and get the replacement model same type, and reprogram the code.
