System won't turn on

I attempted to turn on my sprinkler system this spring and for somenreason, i was unsuccessful. The system has been running successfully for over 25 years. When I opened the valve I didn't hear the customary surge of water filling the pipe. If i press a rod into the brass quick connect, water sprays out.

MP Rotator Selection

Rainbird 1800 Seal-A-Matic Series

I have a piece of property that is mostly flat, but in some places the elevation changes by a foot and in the worst case I have an 18" drop. The heads that are lower in these circuits drain all of the water from the circuit pipe and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the rainbird seal-a-matic heads? Do I have to replace all of the heads in a circuit for them to work correctly, or can I simply replace the lower heads in the circuit? Thanks in advance
