Not Switching Zones

I have a new Orbit 4 zone timer. I only have I controller valve with one solenoid. My system will not switch from one zone to the next. I have a few questions. 1. should the solenoid on/off switch be on or off? How does the timer switch zones with only 1 valve.

You are describing a system with an indexing valve. Those valves require a time delay between zone activations. Read your owners manual and look for options to program a delay between zones. Of course, your one valve is hopefully connected to the "master valve" terminal of the controller.
