I am not sure exactly what the problem is, but it doesn’t sound like a chip kind of problem.  If some LEDs were lighting up initially, it’s almost certain that it is not– it’s much more likely a power supply type of problem or an already weak connection somewhere that was coming loose.   Do you have an alternate power supply that you can test? And, you might want to open up the case and look carefully through the PCB to find any possible loose or cracked solder connections that might be at fault.  If you really get stuck, you might also consider sending it to us for diagnosis; we’re pretty quick at finding problems like these. :)
