I'm sorry for digging up this old topic, but after searching for this issue, this was the only one I could find.

Same thing started happening to me as of today. I usually have a solid blue light setup when during gaming, one of my fans started showing red.
After swapping colors and testing, I couldn't find the issue. Reboot, reflashing of firmware, etc, nothing seemed to fix the color from being shown incorrect.

Then I saw on a secondary fan, that 1 LED of it was slightly flickering.
So I started thinking that it might be the cause. And behold, after testing, I found out that 1 LED from another fan, completely messed up the other fan in the loop that came after it.

As shown and described here:

So I guess my only option is to take out that fan, send it back and get a replacement?

Yes, that would be your best options. The fans run in series ... so, as you've noticed, one bad fan can impact the others.
