Ok try this. Disconnect the new solenoid and run the controller. Still get the err?

One additional question. If the problem follows the wire,on the controller, how can the controller be bad? For example, the wire is in zone 1. If I move to zone 2, the problem is now on zone 2. But the wire I moved from zone 2 to zone 1 allows for zone 1 to work again.

You've followed the logical steps and eliminated wiring and solenoid.
Starts pointing toward the controller.
If you disconnect the wires and run zones does it error out?

Where is the best place to get a 12 zone replacement Rainbird controller?

I grabbed a few backup machines from Craigslist ads. Ran Ubuntu Hardy Heron linux on a Gateway 433 (433MHZ Celeron, 256MB RAM, 66MHz FSB) and got functionality with Firefox (text and pictures, but no video, from the onboard processor)

You know without asking I don't have a Linux machine to test Opera on.
I also don't have one at the house.
But I did just grab an old tower that is dying for something new....

On my linux computer, Opera is no go. Attempted posting returns the "The data you have entered is invalid. Please check the information you have given by the marked fields." message.

Ok. Computers being my first geek love I can't back down from a challenge.
Just downloaded Opera 12. Signed on and typing this in same.
Only difference so far is different default font.
Only deal breaker so far is I can't change font color.

and you know I have to have green.

Also can't view source code, which is usually minor but can be a problem.

It doesn't even have to be a virus. I had a Windows 98 computer crash hard on me from some file converter program I downloaded and installed. By overwriting a dll file with the XP version, it killed both Firefox and Explorer, but not Opera, which I was able to use to download and install the proper 98 dll

When a website doesn't function on Opera, I take it as an indication of sloppy coding somewhere. The original Snitz Forum used here was Opera-compatible.
