Since, in my case, the interference has been pinpointed to the 6.25MHz Clock on the control board I was hoping that someone here might know a bit about how the board is made and if there is any chance it can be modified. Could it be my particular clock happens to have this problem and other F16V2's don't? Do lots of users have these control boards running in their garage without any problems?
In November, when I first had this trouble, I searched the forums for ideas to fix the interference problem. It appears that some people have troubles caused by the power supply and some by the type of lights. I admit, I was hoping that the power supply was the cause of my troubles as that is the easiest to replace.
I tried most of the ideas that I read about.
-trying a different power supply -no success
-making a "windsurfer" parabolic reflector to try and focus my garage door antenna -no success
-placing tin foil around the controller to shield it -no success
-placing a large 4x4 sheet of tin foil beside the door opener to shield it on the controller side -limited success (I could open the door as long as no light strings were attached
-placing a ferrule on the power line and on each of the light strings -limited success (If I only have 1 light string this worked but plugging in more than that it didn't) ** I don't really know much about how ferrules work so this maybe still has some possibilities for success
I didn't try replacing my garage door opener as I wasn't sure if I could purchase one that would work better. My present opener is only 10 years old. It runs at 318MHz.
Any other ideas on what to try would be awesome
