Having been in the flooring installation end of the business for over 20 years have you considered rubber mat flooring. It is about an inch thick and has interlocking tabs. Maybe I can find a hyper link.

Additionally on the market is a vinyl carpet tile...carpet on top....vinyl on the bottom...with a thin dense done inbetween
This is a very popular choice due to the ease of installation...using a peel and stick glue. It allows you to adhere the carpet tile to the floor and if future stains or issues arise you can take the carpet tile up and replace it. Very comfortable under foot....used on many commercial applications and now available at retail outlets like LOWES and home depot

Search the web for carpet tile...and releaseable adhesive for carpet tile.

You can compare prices vs wood, but I would not choose a wood floor personally.

Something is in front of the electric eye. Make sure nothing is in front of it and also make sure there isn't anything on the ground where the door comes down. It sounds like the safety feature keeps kicking in.

Each time you enter a new code it deletes the old ones. Just went through a similar problem.
Possible causes -
1. keypad is toast and you can get a new one from Amazon. A last resort.
2. You need to reset the upper lift memory by hitting the memory key and you have 30 seconds to re-enter your new code into the keypad.

If that doesn't work then back to #1 ( -:
