Genie 1/2 hp, model PCG700ML, goes up not down

Red T-rail sensor flashing red twice/repeats; replaced sensors, no flashes, both sensors lighted, but door still starts down then reverses. Holding wall button depressed, opener continues until door closed. Next, using manual disconnect rope, disconnected door from opener, but opener still starts to close then reverses as if connected to door. Door goes up with no problem. Opener has electrical-magnetic down limit switch; seems attached and in line with back edge of rail connector/lift arm. Clean magnetic/electrical connection? Replace magnetic down-limit switch? Replace opener? Genie tech said to unplug opener, move down pressure knob to zero, then to half-way; plug in receptacle, try to close, failure--move close pressure knob 1/8 inch, try again; repeat....

Welcome to the forums.

Started new thread for you.

If you can hold the button in and the door goes all the way down..... there is a sensor problem.
Holding the button overrides the sensors.
