Sounds like the solenoid's bad on the number 5 zone. Or the wires are crossed somehow.
Since you're turning on the valve manually, you know which valve 5 is. Try disconnecting one of the wires from the solenoid at the valve. Now go run it from the timer. Still get the err? No err = change the solenoid. Err = short, most likely bare wires touching. Look for bare wires while you're at the valves.
