Question Fathom led

Does anyone have experience with fathom led Hydra light fixtures.I just got 3 of them and half of one seems to not be working and it always becomes out of sync with the others.

I have 4. 2 are working great. 1 half the lights are out. And the other light comes on and off whenever it wants
Other than that they are great lights. Had them running for years. We’re the new hot light at one time.

The guy that owns it/runs it is no longer in business.
I was told by a fellow reefer that the lights could be changed out. I guess there are people on eBay that just sell the led puck lights. Would just need someone with electrical experience to change them out. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find whatever light pucks these things use or someone to change them out. Maybe someone with experience will chime in. They are great lights for the price and will grow anything

If the fathom box has round corners. SBreeflight sell retrofit upgrade PCB board. Plenty DIYS video to help you along. I don't know if they will fit in fathom old boxes. But worth asking SBreeflights.

The fathom lights have square corners. Would be awesome if that did work though
