Valve only turns on after 2nd attempt

We have a 12 zone system in which all zones work properly except zone 7. When running the program, it says zone 7 is on, but it's not actually working. The weird thing is that when you try to run zone 7 manually, it doesn't come on on the first attempt, but does work properly after turning it off and trying a second time. On the second attempt, it works properly like nothing is wrong. The problem is that since when running the full program, only 1 attempt is made, so therefore it doesn't come on. Anyone else ever have this problem?

Just for grins, you could try swapping zone wires, to rule the controller out of the problem you're having.
