First, check if opener or remote/pad problem - if door will operate from the remote opener, outdoor keypad, or inside button - then problem is with the particular button or opener remote/pad you are using,not with the unit itself. OF course, if trying to open but jams or stalls out then is opener mechanical problem.

If reversing - won't close last foot or two - check for obstructions or cobwebs on the ankle-level reversing beam transmitter or receiver - located at each side of door opening inside the garage.

For remote opener issues:

Assuming your battery is not dead or making poor contact, frequently cheaper to just buy a new one than try to get it fixed. For local garage door places - and will be a LOT cheaper to take to them rather than have them come to you as you will pay about $50-80 trip charge PLUS and charge for repair or replacement. Replacement openers on the web and from manufacturers direct.
