WARNING:

  • Disconnect operator power before any installation or repair
  • Always wear safety glasses

Your Digi-Code radio controls are designed specifically to remotely control a garage door opener and to give years of trouble free service without adjustment. Because all radio controls are set with the even numbered switches in the "ON" position when they leave the factory, it is recommended that a different code be selected and set at the time of installation. Please refer to the "Setting the Code Switch" section for instructions. The radio frequency (RF) portion of the controls, however , are tuned to standard frequencies and are thoroughly tested at the factory. This permits the addition or replacement of either the transmitter or the receiver by specifying the Model number and the RF frequency designated on the identification label. RF adjustments are not needed nor should any be attempted.

SECTION #1

ACCESSING THE CODE SWITCH AND BATTERY COMPARTMENT

The models 5040, 5042, 5070 & 5072 mini transmitter cases are made up of two halves which are held together by a small Phillips head screw. Removing this screw will allow access to the code switches and the battery compartment.

SECTION #2

SETTING THE CODE SWITCHES ON THE MODEL'S 5040 AND MODEL 5042 SINGLE BUTTON MINI TRANSMITTERS TO MATCH YOUR RECEIVER OR GARAGE DOOR OPENER

Use your finger to slide the "code switch hatch" from the Digi-Code receiver or locate the code switches on the back of your Stanley Operator. The digital code is determined by the position of the 10 small switches numbered 1 through 10 located in the receiver and the transmitter. Set both code switches to the code of your choice, being sure both are set the same since a different setting of just one switch will prevent operation. Any combination of "on" or "off" position can be selected by using a pencil or a pen. (Note: the switches are in the "on" position when the switch is depressed toward the number.) We strongly urge that several coding schemes be avoided: ALL ON; 2,4,6,8,10, ON. These positions are similar to our or other manufactures test positions, or are frequently used.

Once the codes have been set, check operation and reassemble products.

SECTION #3

SETTING THE CODE SWITCHES ON THE MODEL 5070 AND MODEL 5072 DUAL BUTTON MINI TRANSMITTERS TO MATCH YOUR RECEIVER OR GARAGE DOOR OPENER

Use your fingers to slide the "code switch hatch" from the Digi-Code receiver or located the code switches on the back of your Stanley operator. On the transmitter, locate the Phillips head screw on the bottom of the transmitter removing this screw will allow access to the code switches and the battery compartment.

Before setting the receiver code switches you will need to set the transmitter code switches on your model 5070 or 5072. We strongly suggest that you change the code from the factory setting to provide security from your own system and to eliminate interference with neighboring systems.

SETTING THE DUAL BUTTON SWITCHES

Set code switch positions 1 through 10 to your personal code scheme for the left button, any combination of "on" or "off" positions can be selected (Note: The switch is in the "on" position when it is depressed toward the number.) We strongly urge that several coding schemes be avoided: ALL ON; 2,4,6,8,10 ON.

These positions are similar to our or other manufacturers test positions, or are frequently used. Repeat this step for the right button.

SETTING RECEIVER #1 (WORKS WITH LEFT BUTTON)

Set the receiver code switches to match the code settings you entered for the left button switch in the transmitter, being sure both are set the same since different settings of just one switch will prevent operation.

SETTING RECEIVER #2 (WORKS WITH RIGHT BUTTON)

Set the receiver code switches to match the code settings you entered for the right button switch in the transmitter, being sure both are set the same since a different setting of just one switch will prevent operation.

Once codes have been set, check operation.

SECTION #4

TRANSMITTER BATTERY REPLACEMENT

Replacement of battery in the transmitter can be checked or changed by locating the Phillips head screw on the bottom of the case, removing this screw will allow access to the battery compartment. Replacement battery must be a 9 volt.

TO REPLACE OR ADD A SET

A replacement or new transmitter or receiver may be purchased by specifying the Model Number and the RF frequency designated on the serial tag label. The RF frequency is set at the factory and must not be adjusted. The digital code can be matched to the companion receiver or transmitter by following the "setting" procedures above.

OPERATIONAL CHECK

To check operation, move back about 50 feet and press the transmitter button. Operation should be reliable at a distance but environment and location or both the transmitter and receiver will effect the range. Try different mounting locations and positions in the vehicle. If operation is still undesirable, the problem may be tested by:

  • Checking the door operator. If the door will not open when the wall button is pressed, the problem is likely to be the operator. If the door will open by pressing the wall button, but not when the remote control button is pressed, the problem is probably in the radios.
  • Replacing the transmitter battery.

If, after performing the above operational checks, the controls still do not function, they should be returned to the dealer for repair or replacement.
