Issue with a zone


First time for me on this forum.
I have an issue with a zone - and after all troubleshooting i'm still not quite sure what is wrong.

I have a triple zone valve.
Zone one - doesn't come on anymore.

I thought at first it was a bad selenoid - so i switched zone one and two selenoids -
I turned on zone two (which now had the potentially bad solenoid) - and the sprinklers came one.
I turned on zone one (which now had the good solenoid) - and it failed to come one.
I checked the connection at the box - all wires seem correct, nothing loose.

I blew zone one with my compressor (winterize) it - then i turned it one and it worked - Success.. but
the next day - on its schedule - it failed come on again

Any idea what could be causing this?

Thanks anyone for any help with this problem

Valve Issue

Did you take the solenoids off of the valve and switch them or did you switch the wires around at the circuit box?

How is the valve? Do you have a flow control on it, and can you open the said valve by hand with the manual bleed?

How old is the valve?**
