Need help with CMP module in T5440 system

Hey guys.. So I have a second hand T5440, bought off of ebay super cheap (so no support contract of any kind). The system has 4 SPARC processors and 128gb of RAM. Everything was working great until one day I notice that I lost a processor and all of its associated memory. When the system boots I see this:

2018-02-06 18:08:36.708 0:0:0>VBSC selecting Normal mode, MAX Testing.
Notice that it claims to be enabling CMP1 however it shows zero threads enabled. Shortly after this happens the system stops booting entirely, however I was able to find a replacement processor module (again off ebay!). After replacing the processor the system boots again (yay!) but CMP1 is still not working.

There are no faults reported through ILOM/Web console.. no components are listed as disabled, however I still don't have a functioning CMP1. The only thing I see in the web console is that the L2_BANKs under CMP1 are listed as state "Unknown" but I can't take any action to re-enable anything. Any ideas?
