    I have an uncle lester that needs an LED installed along with a resistor. I decapitated him with a ball when he fell out of his chair. The resistor that was on there broke and so did the led leg. Can anyone point me in the right direction on what LED and resistor I need to get him back working? Thanks

    This should help. Use your voltage and enter into the calculator. For single leds use this.

    For a series of leds use this.

    I'm sorry. Don't know. Use a voltmeter to check your voltage. Click on the little question mark to figure out what to enter. It was so easy when we still had radio shacks around here.

    I know, I really miss radio shack, hate having to order everything and wait for it to be shipping.

    Ok. So I don't have that style LED in my parts bin. Does the LED work? Have you checked it with a meter in diode test mode? Do not just hook it up to a DC voltage. Without the current limiting resistor, you will damage the LED if it does work.
