First - make sure that you have the connected to the correct channel.
Next - and here's where your issue is, I think - you have to realize that the fans operate in series. One fan passes data to the next fan and so one. So one bad fan in the chain can take the whole thing out. The challenge is to determine which one (or more) is bad and not passing the data. Just because a fan works on it's own in port 1 does not mean that it is good. That's only 1/2 of the test. If a fan works in port 1 AND the next fan also work, THEN (and only then) can you consider the fan "good".

Randomly rearranging them won't always get you the answer. You have to be very methodical about it. Mark the ends so you can track them. Put a fan in port 1. Does it light up? If yes, put it in port 2. Then put another fan in port 1. Does it light up? Does the next? If yes to both, then that fan is "good". Keep going until you identify the good and the bad. It is entirely possible that a fan can completely light up and not pass data to the next fan.
