Valves won't open Electrically

New guy here looking for some advice.Rainbird ESP SMTe controller and Rainbird valves on my system. Recently we noticed plants looking stressed in back yard. Discovered that valves are not opening. Voltage at controller is between 28.5v and 26.8v for all active zones, which seems sufficient. Voltage at solenoid drops to under 10v on both zones. Ran controller self-diagnostic short test and all zones tested good. Front yard runs perfectly. Since we live in the Phoenix, AZ metro area you can understand how important it is for our system to work.
Appreciate any advice or suggestions
Thanks,
RichH
