Well Amy, as you have probably deduced the problem is most likely with the main unit, since both remotes stopped working at the same time. Long distance guesswork is chancey, however, since it still opens OK, I'd way the seal-in coil or latch for the closing contactor is broken. A handyman with some electrical trouble-shooting knowledge could probably fix this for you relatively inexpensively.
However, if you have to pay a "Pro" to make a house call, at today's rates you probably ought to seriously consider replacing the unit. Unfortunately steep labor rates seem to have forced us to become a throw away society.
Hope you can find a handyman.
Good Luck,
