    You can find on this site the hook up directions on product 277-0088 Ornament Light. I bought a couple of them on close out and it is the same led used in the project.

            After significant effort with my favorite search engine, I was able to determine that this is Micro Electronics manufactured part. The part number is MSGBB557TA. If you search for that number and the words "spec sheet" you can find the key details you need...although there isn't a lot there, it's sufficiant. The key take away is ground the control mode pin to change the color that gets displayed after the bootstrap is done. Also, starve the LED for current if you want it to cycle in boot-mode continuously.

            Need very small capacitor

                Comments about RadioShack High-Brightness 7-Color 5mm Blinking LED:

                I described how to make it flash using rectified AC. Now that the project is complete, the need for a small capacitor is evident. In summary of my six LED, series/parallel array:
                Use Full-bridge rectified 12 VAC
                Used a 3 nF capacitor across the + and -
                Then a 1000 Ohm resistor
                Into the array of six LED's: Three parallel sets of two series LED's.
                This flashes continuously, with some pauses at red. It is spectacular.
                The part number for the LED's is: MSGBB557TA.

                    Comments about RadioShack High-Brightness 7-Color 5mm Blinking LED:

                    It is frustrating that no data sheet helps here, but here is a resolution:

                    To make it flash trough all colors continuously for example:
                    * Use a 12 volt AC source and leave the third lead open.
                    * Full bridge rectify the 12 AC using NO capacitance filter. This confuses the onboard IC, since 0 volts is observed 120 times a second.
                    * Use a 1500 to 2000 ohm resistor. This lowers the current to where the onboard capacitance cannot allow counting of cycles.
                    * That's it! It will run continuously on its array of colors. It does shift from even cycles to the rapid cycling on seemingly random intervals. But it is still spectacular.

                    A rational person would think that after 5 years of comments, someone at Radio Shack would have corrected this situation by now. Thank goodness for the perseverance of the people in the previous comments. Depending on how you intend to use this device, you may have to combine some of the information from these previous users.

                    Considering the price of an individual unit, it is the least we expect of you.

                        Bought this light with NO specs.
                        I had the wife look at the comments and read them off to me!!!!
                        Removed led from nightlight and installed this bulb with a capacitor (as shown later on down)
                        Works great, Pretty cool nightlight but people tell me: "Welcome back to the 70's acid trips"
                        AWESOME !
