Had GREAT pressure, now it's gone and one zone will only shut off manually (at cut off).

I was so excited to get our system running. Turned it on (1st time in a couple yrs to run some diagnostics). The 1st station came on ( about 4 or 5 rotating heads- shooting like 5ft) cool... The controller switched stations after 10 min to zone two. Went back to zone one and it wouldn't pressure up. I later noticed that all these heads are on low on the opposite side of the house. These have good pressure, but will not shut off. We disconnected the wires to all but station 1, and these only shut off if I turn the water off. I'm not sure what zone these are, but really really would appreciate those rotating heads working with all that pressure again, that beats standing with the hose (especially cause I know they will work). I'm not sure what the problem is. Detailed answer would be greatly appreciated. Be easy on me too, cause it's my first time. Thanks, Monica

Find the zone valves, and then you can deal with their problems, like a valve sticking open.
