One sprinkler head not popping up

Hi there, NEWB here. I'm hoping someone can help me. New house, I never had an irrigation system before. i have one sprinkler that doesnt pop up. water just pools around the area. it was a hunter pgp. i unscrewed it and tried to vacuum out the opening w/ shop vac to clear any debris and installed a new rain bird. same thing! i have a 7 zone system. this is not the last/lowest sprinkler in the system. now i'm getting a large dead spot in my lawn. any ideas? thank you!

Is the head the 'last one in line' by any chance? You might have a blockage, or a tree-root constriction.
