I bought a few cheap solar landscape lights that use single LED bulbs. One light does not work. I opened it up and it is basically an LED, a rechargable AAA (1.2v) size battery, a light sensor and a small circuit board.

I am pretty sure the battery is charging since it had a charge when I measured it. I am pretty sure I saw voltage at the LED. How can I tell if the LED is faulty? Should I see full battery voltage at the LED leads? Can I just go to Radio Shack and buy one or are they rated in some way that I would need a specific one? Anything else I should look for?
