so pretty much this test should clarify what Rasser, davemedinis, patrikantonius, Along with others had previously said.
i first plugged in the unit as it previously was,
row "A" had module2 full blast and module3 dimmed
row "B" had module 3 full blast
the rest of the modules do not work.
i then unpluuged everything (keep in mind i will be conducting test the with same wiring as it origninally was)

i first wanted to start with row A and the working module2 and driver2.
driver2+module3=dimm, this tells us that module3 is broken and driver2 is working.

this is when the test goes sour,
driver1+module2= full blast, then within 10 seconds it starts to blink multiple times, then its dimms
driver1+module3=dimm, same as before, once agian this could be a indication that driver works, but then agian this driver and module2 completly just failed!
so i dont feel the need of posting the rest of the results of row A results are the same as the others.(unless u absoultly need them)
ok so now row B
i decided just to start with driver1
driver1+module3=fullblast, but within seconds the same occures, it blinks then it dimmed, however it didnt dimm as much as module2 from row A, it still has some power, but by no means full blast
the rest of the results are the same, i dont feel the need to post, unless otherwise.
ok so now what does this test tell us? it can mean alot of things
i think these leds and modules are busted, just like it was stated earlier, each one would eventually go out.
so whats next?
how should we further test these modules and or drivers?
how can we redisign this led unit?'
how can we upgrade it?
