If you put a lower voltage battery instead of 12v,
it wouldnt damage the remote.

However if the remote only takes 1.5 volt battery,
then the remote is probably damaged.

Also check that the polarity when you put the batter in corresponds,
 so that the "+" is on "+" and "-" is on the "-".

These devices are Idiot Proof (apparently not), they put diodes in
the circuit to prevent people from putting them in wrong way round.

How does one put a diode in "the wrong way around"?

The up & down door direction functions will be reversed. Having BOTH the
diode and the battery reversed will however correct this.
