Question about Rain Bird Hardware & Accessories
Resetting involves reprogramming, but that's easy to do. You probably have a cheat sheet, like I do.
Unplug the timer, remove the battery, and go have a cold drink (let it sit for about 10 minutes. Reinstall the battery, plug it back in and you are good to go. Reprogram.

SOURCE: I have a Orbit 57161
Tech service 1-800-488-6156
Timer has 4 year warranty
The manual has troubleshooting
Looking through the manual I can see potential trouble areas:
-Water pressure too high > 60 psi is ordinary household pressure > order Brady BTG pressure gauge that connects to hose
-Overlapping times are 'stacked' by timer ... but 'more than one start time' is listed as cause of stations turning on when not supposed to >> reset and re-program timer, make chart of on-off times
-Weak or missing AA batteries >> clean terminal inside timer and replace batteries
-Hard water deposits or unfiltered water clogging water valve (water softeners frequently have this problem) >>> see if vinegar or CLR cleaner can help flush water valve >>> add sediment filter in front of timer
-Look at screen > does display show Manual? As in manual mode
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects

CHECK THE VOLTAGE COMMING FROM THE TIMER TO THE VALVE WHEN THE TIMER IS IN THE ON POSSISTION IF NO VOLTAGE THE TIMER OR IF IT IS LOW VOLTAGE THE TRANSFORMER IS BAD. IF YOU HAVE POWER FROM THE TIMER THE COIL ON THE WATER VALVE HAS GONE BAD
