Rain Bird sst-900i not working any zones

Everything was working fine. Now no zone works. I tried to manually run all five nothing. Controller seems fine and says it is watering. Any ideas?It seems this controller has no fuse, I have hit the reset.
Can I jumper around the controller somehow to test it?
Thanks
Jeff

Try operating a zone without using the controller. If the system functions manually, then you probably have electrical wiring problems and not a controller problem.

Thanks I will try that once I figure out how. Just bought this place and the 5 boxes were covered with dirt, but worked. Could it be a square shaped rod that I would have to turn?
I only see the top 1/2 inch or so.
I have an image but it seems it has to be an url to link to.

Take your photo(s) to tinypic.com and upload them there. It's free and you don't need to register, although you might have to endure a short ad that is sometimes part of the "prove you are not a robot" process. Then you copy and paste the 'IMG Code' (second line down) into the message box here.

You circled the bleed screw, which will open the valve without the controller. Ideally, you would have less dirt in those valve boxes. You never know when a valve might need to be opened up for service.

I just bought the place. These boxes were covered with 2 or 3 inches of dirt but worked fine. Maybe I have a loose wire somewhere.

I noticed there are wires to a master valve. If this does not work could it be the problem none of the zones work? I will try and verify with a volt meter.

It seems it was a loose wire for the master coming out of the controller.
