sprinkler zone not turning on manually or automatically


I have a Rain bird sprinkler system. 3 of zones stopped working automatically. When I try to turn on manually by turning the Solenoid, it makes a water sound, but the sprinklers don't work. Would it be that the solenoid has gone bad or is there something else going on and how can I check?

Thanks in advance.

It's probably the diaphragm.
Make sure the flow control isn't turned all the way off.
What model of valve is is?
