So I could pull the panel open and look for continuity from the begging of the wiring to the end of the led strips? Somewhere in the middle there may be a loss of connection?

Or do I just buy the led strips (when they become available again from shopjimmy, unless someone knows elsewhere to buy them), and change them?
