Sprinkler will not turn on

I have a Orbit 57696 model and not 1 of the 6 zones will come on. On the control box it has power off inside a little water drop in upper left corner of display. I tried to manually start it and no zones will work. It is wired to the outside electrical box. Fuse was not blown and I replaced it same results. Any help would be appreciated.

Was working and just stopped?
New install and it never worked?

Their manual is a little less than helpful.
I couldn't find the symbol you mentioned.
The only advice they give for your problem is
1. Transformer defective or not connected.
2. Programming is incorrect.
3. Fuse has been blown.

Best bet might be their tech support: 1-800-488-6156.
If you find out anything we'd appreciate a follow up. Add it to our list of solutions found.
