Replacement moonlight LEDs?

We have a DeepBlue HE2 Double Freshwater T5 strip lighting unit for our tank. 3 of the 4 moonlight LEDs are out :-( however, If we squeeze the unit the LEDs will come back on but will shut off as soon as we let go. Can we replace the moonlight LEDs or does anyone have any ideas how to fix it? Thanks!

You could just add some LED strip lights to the bottom of the fixture... It sounds like you just have a bad connection somewhere though and if you have a soldering iron you could probably fix it in a few minutes.

That's what we have been doing but doesn't look as nice as the moon lights. We will try the soldering iron. Can't get worse then what we got now. Thanks!
