How do I get a 7-color LED to just blink continuously? Answered
I'm working on a sculpture that involves LEDs.
The basic instructions I've been using come from steps 2 and 3 from this tutorial - https://www.instructables.com/id/Beating-...
I'm attaching the leads of the LEDs directly to 3 volt lithium watch batteries. However, I decided to try to use a 7-color blinking LED, and I'm having troubles.
The LED packaging says it has "single-color, color-changing or flashing modes." The LED has one anode and two cathodes.
When I attach the anode and one of the cathodes, nothing happens, and when I use the other cathode, it cycles through all of the modes in about 30 seconds, and then turns off. The only way I can get it to start again is to take the leads off and start again, but this isn't an option for my project, being as the entire circuit has to be covered in glue to waterproof it.
How do I get the LED to just blink continuously? Any help is greatly appreciated.
