Replaced Sprinkler Head; Station Now Not Functioning

It's not like I've never replaced a sprinkler head before, but I don't get this one.

Last night, one sprinkler was shooting straight up in Station 4. Today, I dug around that head, twisted it off, and replaced it with a new one. That's it. Now the entire station won't run. I give up.


Thanks for any insight.

Maybe you cut the wire to valve number 4 when you were digging.
Maybe it's just a coincidence that the valve stopped working at the same time you changed the head.
Make sure the wiring's ok and the valve's getting power from the controller.
Did you turn on and off the valve manually while you were working? Maybe you accidently disconnected a wire.
Did you turn off the flow control or the water to the valve?
Does it function manually?
That's a good start.
