I have the old single cord ones. On one of them the whites quit working. What could be the issue?

Easiest way to find out is to use a multimeter and do a continuity check on each led. If they all light up then they are good. And it would be the driver that's bad.

Easier way is to blind yourself like how I do it. 1 wire stripped on both ends with unit powered up and I connect the wire to both the + and - of each single led till all the other LEDs light up and I know which is burnt out. I can't see for a few days but it's ok.

Lol yeah it's really something best left to those that have professional experience at it. Martin or Doyle are your best bet

All I have planned Saturday is a day of rock climbing with mini-me. Is a quick 15min check.
