I am tryin to program my new remote with no luck. I have followed the instructions repeating it many times. The battery is in the correct way. I press the learn bottom while pressing the buttons on the remote and it flashes. The old remote is a merlin+ the new one is a merlin 2.0, is this the problem?

Hi I have 2x Merlin powerlift 2500L for my 2 single garage doors. I am not using one of the garages that much (as the remote sensor in the motor is not working now) so wanted to use that remote with the other door. The problem is the remote used for that door is 2000L remote. How do I program this to my other door that is using a 2500L remote? I have opened the remotes and the they both have different sequence numbers in it.
