The wall switch doesn’t work while the remote does
When something doesn’t function anymore, the first thing you need to do is to test it. Just to make sure that there is a malfunction and not a wire that is not plugged in as it should be.
To check the wall switch you should unscrew one and put the other terminal on it. Consider replacing the switch if the opener runs.
If when you touch the wires the openers doesn’t work, try using a small wire to hit those same two wires where the opener terminal is. In this situation if the opener works, the wire that connects the switch to the opener is malfunctioning.
