Heads Only Operate Manually

Only three of my stations operate from the control box. The other two stations will only operate by manually turning the valve. Any thoughts?

Either the valve isn't getting the correct power or no power or there's something wrong with the valve. You can try switching a wire/s from a valve you know works to one that doesn't to see what happens. If it's a valve problem is usually the diaphragm. Could be a clogged port. Could be something wrong with the solenoid. Knowing the make and model number of the valve would help.
