I have a 4 Zone control board but it is using only 2 Zones.

Customer Question

I have a 4 Zone control board but it is using only 2 Zones. Zone 2 works fine but Zone 1 does not function now. Do I need a new board?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Just the past week.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Depends on what's wrong. I was quoted $1320 yesterday and the tech said I needed additional wiring. I don't know what to think. There is a reboot switch on the board but I am not sure if rebooting will help.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: That's about it. I am BSEE, MSEE just retired. Just seems way over cost for a new board.
JA: I'm sorry but I'm not sure we have an expert who covers what you are looking for. Maybe if you give me more details I will find you a connection to someone who can help you.
Customer: Ok. Send me an email at***@******.*** if you find someone.

Forget it. I am retired. I did not know this was going to escalate into a money thing.
