Garage door goes down half way and then back up??

My garage door goes half way down and then back up when i press the remote button.

What causes this and what can I do to fix it?

So I cant close the garage door.

The door is probably binding and the safety devices think it may have hit something. The opener reverses to pull away from whatever it thinks it is hitting.

First clean up the tracks. Often crud builds up and causes problems, especially in cold weather. Second, inside of the opener, you may find adjustments to increase the down force, which will help in getting past the binding spot.
