I probably don't have good news.

Open following link for Gardena manuals
There are a couple different 1030s

I have not found source for parts or any available repairs for broken water timers.
Nor has anyone commented about fixing a water timer after if goes bad.
Please add a comment if you are able to fix your water timer, and what you did to repair it, or if you find parts, so other people visiting this thread can gain from your valuable knowledge.

My gardena water timer won't stop bipping. See the picture. Is it the battery ?

for the Gardena-T-1030-1805 model....
Gardena 1030 1805 Operating Instructions Manual Page 7

11. Battery
11.1 Status indicator
If the battery capacity falls below a certain level, a warning signal sounds every 15 seconds. The programs you have set are not run. The water flow cannot be opened manually. If a valve is open, however, it will be closed.
11.2 Changing the battery
If the battery capacity is too low (the warning signal beeps every 15 seconds), you must change the battery.

To do this, the water timer must be removed from the tap.
Important : Changing the battery deletes the data you have set.
To change the battery :
1. Insert the battery in the battery compartment
2. Set the Run Time control knob
3. Reset the watering data as described in "Setting the watering data".
3 If the Run Time knob is not turned to Reset, 5 seconds after the
battery was inserted the current Run Time shall be accepted. This is confirmed by a double beep.

Note : The time the battery was changed is taken to be the starting time.

To ensure that the water timer works properly we recommend that you insert a new battery at the beginning of every gardening season, or at the latest after a year.
Important ! Please dispose of used batteries properly at the appropriate communal waste disposal site. Only dispose of batteries when flat.

How do i set timer on gardena t 1030 d with distibutor?

Question is not clear.
-Are you looking for a product manual? Or somebody to explain certain parts of manual?
Add a comment with specific question, and I will respond. Or take advantage of fixya live and expert speaks with you over phone while you program timer.

-If you want the timer to control different watering channels, then 1030D does not perform that function. The timer just turns one valve on-and-off.

-Open following links to identify timer and download manual, and see links to other water timer products for example Orbit timers and Intermatic sprinkler timers can control multiple water channels:

My Gardena T 1030 D water timer wont turn on automatically it does go on when I turn dial to on

Open following link for T1030 manual and Gardena links, including link to contact Gardena and link for parts.

I cannot find T1030D manual to help you solve the problem, other than suggest opening the cover using thumb-latch and change battery and clean the connections.

If you can scan your manual into pdf format and post it on your website, many folks would be happy to have a copy so fixya can help more folks solve Gardena problems.

Also add a comment and say what the manual says about the specific problem you are trying to solve.

Some Gardena manuals appear on following link, and additional manuals are posted as found:

Also Google search "Gardena C1030 .pdf" or "Gardena C-1030 .pdf"
Be sure and add .pdf to search parameter to help isolate manuals from other internet posts
Gardena for some reason does not have manuals easily available as of today's date.
