Default Help! DIY LEDs blinking when lit up.

Hey guys
I made this LED fixture with 10 cree XPEs, 10 epistar 3W leds. And after running it for a while I didnt use it. Now when I got use of it, I took it out, wiring had came off a few places. So I wired it back and now the LEDs are blinking. I changed drivers, I rewired all LEDs and tested if they work singly. Everything fine, so I connected them to driver and again they blink. What could be the cause? And how to resolve it? I have tried a 600ma constant current driver ( for 12-18 x 3W LEDs). Two 900ma CC drivers (7-10 x 3W leds) and the lights blink with all of these drivers.
