My orbit is wired right, but only sprinkler number 2 will work. It comes on when I push for 1 3and 4

If indeed it is wired correctly, and your wires go where you think they do, then your Orbit is defective.
Test by removing wires 1,2,3, and 4.
Push for 1, and touch wire 1 to the connector for 1. Sprinkler 1 comes on? Touch wire 1 to the connector for 2. Sprinkler 1 comes on?
If yes to both, then Orbit is broken.

"my orbit easy dial 6 station quit working in auto

Does it work manually? If so, which is rare and almost unheard of I would replace the timer. You can't buy a less expensive timer $20 for a 4 station. Which explains why it is not working. If it doesn't work make sure it is plugged in and outlet has power.

Copy following links to identify timer manual and general wiring illustration:
Do not connect voltage directly to COM and Pump terminals... these terminals have their own 24Volt AC output when timer turns ON. When timer turns on, the 24V flows to Relay. This action will cause electro-magnet to pull two points together, and that will turn on the pump.
Same with the sensor terminals. Do not connect power to rain sensor terminals. The rain sensor plugs into outlet, and produces it's own 24V ac output. So when rain sensor activates, this cuts power to timer, and then timer will automatically bypass the watering schedule until rain sensor again resumes power output to timer.

Most likely timer is not plugged in or outlet has no power. Should display a plug with a circle around it with a line through it. If not. Check the wiring be sure the same color wire used for Common in the timer is used in the field. Should have 1 wire from each valve connected to it.

Model 57882 9 station timer I did set up station 1 where do I begin in order to set up station 3

Question is not clear.
Do you have programming problem with the timer?
Or problem locating sprinkler heads?
Or a sprinkler valve problem?
Add a comment with detailed information.

Sprinkler timer turns ON-and-OFF.
Timer does not advance the sprinkler to next station. The sprinkler valve advances to next station when timer turns OFF.
For example, when timer turns ON, then station 1 starts watering.
Timer turns off, and then sprinkler valve automatically advances to station 2.
Timer turns on again, and station 2 starts watering.

My Orbit 57899 is saying no ac but the outlet to where this goes is working fine

I believe that you plug a transformer into the outlet. If this transformer is not working, no power goes to the timer. Remove the battery and if the timer display goes out (and it may take some time, possibly hours) the transformer is in need of replacement. They are available at sprinkler suppliers and maybe even a local hardware.

I have an Orbit WaterMaster Sprinkler control, it is hooked up, but there is a light bulb that says power off and the sprinklers won't turn on. They will turn on manually at the sprinkler station. Can...

There are 3 things this "off power" "light bulb" could be. Blinking red light? means fuse has gone out. Check the power source where the unit is plugged in to. Is the GFI popped out? plug something else like a fan or something into the socket to test. the third thing is a short internally. Call orbit technical assistance. they're great.
