    Is this the same unit?
    Page 25 has troubleshooting instructions.
    First thing is to check that it has ac power available (should be an indicator on the lcd).
    Has it just started having the problem? did anyone change things? Is it in a manual mode?

    Can you be more descriptive of the model of timer, when it stopped working, etc.?

Assuming that you have AC power (the symbol is not on to tell you it isn't failed), and everything else seems normal, then open it up and make sure the ribbon cable didn't come out (sometimes temperature variations make the clips creep apart and do weird things), and that the sensor connection is secure (either jumpered or connected to the sensor input). Look for corrosion or water in the box. Do you have electronics repair skills? If not, the best you are going to do is replace the main components until it works. The replaceable parts are listed in the manual (the front panel seems to be working, leaving the ribbon cable(not likely) and the main board.) You also have the possibility that some of the valves were fried by lightning or something, and possibly the drivers in the board.

I have Intermatic sprinkler model T8845pv. I want to set it for daily watering in only one of 8 zones. When I remove the gold pins in the main dial and locate the zone I want to water, it waters the...


Intermatic sprinkler timers are 24 hour repeat cycle, with day-skipper option.
The timer does not change zones. The timer just turns ON-and-OFF at scheduled times.
Each tripper represents 12-15 minutes of watering. And then the timer circuit turns OFF.
When timer circuit turns OFF, the sprinkler system is designed to advance to next zone each time.
So when the timer circuit turns OFF and then turns ON again, your sprinkler control starts watering the next zone. This is the way sprinkler systems are designed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

If you had a sprinkler system with 1 zone, or could change your sprinkler system to 1 zone on certain days, then the timer would turn that zone on-off each time.
Call a local sprinkler company and see if they have a dual control or some solution >> but sprinkler controls are outside my area of expertise. I am timer expert.

You could solve problem with two separate sprinkler systems, but that would require two timers. I have never seen a 2-channel sprinkler timer. There are electronic two-channel timers that can handle two different programming schedules with minimum 1 minute on-off, and these timers can cost a few hundred dollars up to thousands, PLUS cost of the dual sprinkler system. Add a comment and let me know if two-channel timers are something you want information on.
