rainbird esp modular

I ran my sprinklers last night and they worked. Today I tried to manually run them again and the controller box shows they are running but the heads are not spraying water. The timer ticks down like the station is working. I am wondering if this is a fixable problem. Thank you for any advise. :)

Is the controller getting power or is it running off of the back up battery? I'm not sure that timer will even do that without showing some sort of indication that there's no power.

Is the controller putting out a signal around 24V?

Are the valves receiving the signal?

Did someone turn the water off to the valves? Try turning one on manually at the valve.

Sprinklers run every morning.

Whether The controller is in off, manual, or auto for a program mode, it runs everyday for the set time it’s programmed whether it’s scheduled that day or not. What’s wrong. How do I repair it.
