Rainbird sst-1200o does not work

I have a brand new controller. It's the Rainbird sst-1200o.  When I go to water any zone nothing happens. No heads pop up.  No water flow. I can't hear the valve opening and there is power to the controller. Is there an issue with the common on a valve?

Thank you

If none of the zones work it does sound like the common wire. You say you get power to the controller.
One of your options is to see if you have 24v going to the terminals. Then turn on a zone and see if you have 24v going to valve. If you have 24v at the terminal and nothing at the valve, time to start checking the wires.

Glad to hear it.
Sometimes you luck out and it's easy.
