Esp 12-lx Plus: Zones failing to start

Hi - Recently one of the zones on my sprinkler system (ESP 12-LX PLUS controller) failed to start. Soon after, two other zones failed to start. I ran through the Raster test and all zones pass but the test says 'Open MV'.

Is my controller failing? Is there anything that can be done?

I'd check the wiring first, then the solenoids. You can check your controller with a multimeter by running a zone and holding the leads of the meter to the proper zone port and the common port. you should get around 24V.

Multiple zones failing could be a common wire connection problem.
