These cords are basically what help to lift the garage door, so damage to these cords, can really affect how your garage door functions.

Automatic garage doors work because of the photo sensor lens that is installed in them, and if this lens is compromised, your garage door won’t respond to its remote. There can be a number of reasons why your photo lens isn’t working, an accumulation of dust and debris on the lens makes it difficult for it to work, another possible reason is that the lens could be out of its original which is why it can’t detect the remote’s transmission, lastly damage to the lens also prevents it from working.
