I had a very difficult time getting my keypad to work. It worked when the LED was red, not green. I have no idea how I managed to switch it to red. If anyone knows, that would be a good additions to Don's instructions.

I have a Legacy 696 garage door opener. My remote will allow me to open the door but not close. Plus the button in the garage on the wall will not allow me to close the door unless I continuously hold the button down. Any suggestions?

Be sure you are hitting the PRG button and not the up/down button per the directions on the new code. It's easy to make that mistake. Also, don't be in a hurry to enter your new passcode. Press it in and leave a 1-2 second gap between each entry #. I had same issue as you until I slowed down my entry.
