either way, turn on the water and look at the top of head, a possibility is the seal has failed and is actually leaking. If they are, then there's your reason for lack of pressure.
Its been raining for the past 4 days so everything is soaking wet and its supposed to rain all weekend too, so I havent had a chance to cap the sprinkler heads and look for leaks. but when I first turned the system on it literally trickled out of the first 2 heads then nothing at all on all the rest. I cleaned it and then I got maybe a foot spray pattern and the same trickle from the second head and still nothing from the rest. So somewhere the line is either blocked or leaking because there isnt enough pressure to even make the heads pop up all the way. I added a pic of what the sprinklers look like.
