    You might want to provide us with some helpful information such as the type of boiler, type of zone valves and the controller.

    Pressing the reset button can't hurt anything but if Zone 2 is working and Zones 1 & 3 are not you don't have a boiler issue. Has anyone recently done any work in your house? Perhaps they upset the wiring to the transformer. Are the ball valves for zones 1 & 3 open?

    We really need more information.

    Until you figure this out, you could manually open the zone valves of 1 and 3 (often a lever on the valve). Then, you'd have heat there, at least while zone 2 was calling for heat.

    Zone valves typically run off of 24vac through the thermostat wiring. If you aren't using a controller, then the zone switch's end switch can be used to control the call for heat to the boiler. Without knowing more specifics of your system, as said, it's hard to diagnose.

    I'm thinking you have a bad transformer or two bad zone valve heads
