I have a couple of LED Wall Sconces in the bathroom which both won't turn on anymore. Wall switch and other stuff seem to be OK. I just pulled one of them from the wall, so when I plug it to an outlet, it might blink once for a second or might do nothing, but regardless of that, it won't turn on at all. I see that it has an Eagle Rise LED driver, and not sure if these things could go bad and if I could get that and replace it, or the whole thing is end of life?

Are your fixtures older? Are you using a regular switch or a dimmer? Are the bulbs compatible with the switch? Have you checked the voltage with a multimeter at the fixture with the switch on?

No they're relatively new. 2010 I think. No dimmer. Yes voltage is the same I'd get from an outlet. In fact I pulled one and plugged it to an outlet and still the same results. It might blink for a second, and go dark. But mostly won't even blink.

There are multiple reasons could be but i suggest you 3 steps please make sure it
1. Plug or wall switch
Not to suggest that you're a dim bulb (pun intended), but have you made sure the fixture is plugged in and/or the switch is on?
2. Circuit breaker
Is anything else in the room failing to turn on? If so, check your service panel (breaker/fuse box) for a tripped breaker or blown fuse.
3. Light bulb
Before you replace the existing bulb, give it a twist and a jiggle -- sometimes that works. Otherwise, try a new one.

With that, I would say the fixture is bad, considering you are applying the proper voltage to it and it still doesn't work.

It's hard to say weather it is the LED board or the driver,
But since they are so cheap it would not be worth the effort.
Replace it.

Replace the whole fixture? It's around $250 each and I have 2. I see LED driver is cheap enough. I guess I'll just try to replace one, and if that doesn't work, will get whole new fixtures.
