Okay, what am I doing wrong?! I've got an Olimex PG-2C. I place a PIC16F628 in the programmer socket and it programs and verifies just fine, using IC-Prog v1.05. When I connect the ICSP lines to the PIC and try programming it fails. Pin 1 of ICSP (Vpp) is connected to

hi, I'm using a pg2c programmer (by olimex). I works well if the PIC is in the programmer socket, but my laptop serial port can't supply enough power to do ICSP. If I want to provide external power during ICSP programming, would I just disconnect the programmer's ICSP power lines

Hi, I'm trying to use a standard LCD (16x2) to display a reading from a sharp gp2d120 distance sensor but having poor luck. The LCD works great but when I plug the sensor to the circuit the screen either hangs up or displays nothing or nonsens. I also noticed that programming the pic (via ICSP) fails while the sensor is connected. I'm aware that the
