Normally the Phase fail light indicates that there is no voltage on that phase. If it coming on/off, particularly as you add more ligths, then I suspect a loose connection somewhere in your rig, either inside the dimmer rack or in the supply wiring. You really need an electrician with a multimeter to trace down where the problem is located.
To get yourself out of trouble will require re-patching and programming your show to work on the remaining 8 channels. Not easy or fun, but it is the only easy way out until you get a sparkie on site.

I have found that with some old Jands dimmers (never had the issue with a LSC dimmer) a power cycle can sometimes make it happy again.
One musical a while ago we lost Phase 3 on our 3rd dimmer once every few scenes - and quick power cycle sorted it out every time...
Again, never had to try it on a LSC dimmer...
