Question about Individual Computers & Internet
It won't run automatically either. I tried resetting it by removing battery and Ac.
Any time you remove battery or unplug both at the same time your system will need to be reprogram. the "on" button just turns system on you need to turn your function button to what you want to do... in your case just use the "test" button it will turn on all zones one at a time.

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

My Air Station blew a fuse also. The fuse that came with the inflator may be a bit too small amperage wise so I stepped up to .25 Amps more which is just a very small increase.
It is really ill advise to solder a wire in the place of a fuse. You are just asking for it.
The way I did it is I went to my local Radio Shack and got a small fuse holder with red leads and 1.5 Amp fuses. I soldered the fuse holder in place with the new fuse. And now I don't have to deal with any more solder. Just twist the fuse holder, take out the burnt out fuse and replace it with a new one. And wahlah. I'm back in business again.

To set individual presets:
1. tune to the station you want as a preset
2. hold down the number (ie "1") on the remote until the number blinks on the system
3. repeat for all other stations
press the number on the remote to tune to your preset
this is very similar to setting the presets on my car radio
