PIC16F84A , JDM and IC-Prog 1.05A problem....

Started by sigint112 May 22, 2003
Hi,
i have a serious problem with IC-Prog 1.05A. When i try
to programm a PIC16F84A (4Mhz) with the JDM programmer i always
get a veryfy error at 0x00 . PIC12F629 are working fine and
Pony-Prog with PIC16f84A also is doing fine,but Pony-Prog tells
me that i have 2K flash what is wrong. Does anyone know this problem
and how to solve it?

Greetings,
SIGINT




AFIK IC-prog 1.05A is a beta version. Ask better the creator:

However, test if this is happening every time you are trying to program
the PIC, or just sometime,
test the pin connections and if no success, switch back to icprog 104.
And test also if settings->option->misc->enable Vcc control for JDM is
disabled and settings->hardware->io_delay is greater than 4 for direct IO
interface. On Thu, 22 May 2003, sigint112 wrote:

what program are you using to write your code? I know that when using
the MPLabs IDE I have to be very careful that the IDE is set up for the
specific chip, else on load (using 1.05) I get verify errors.

I also get verify errors after I let the smoke out of the chip :^ --- Vasile Surducan <> wrote:

Good point... i'll do it,when my system's up again(harddisk failure)
KNOPPIX IS COOL :)

Every time i try to programm the PIC i get the error.I tested
several PIC's with and without socket.(to protect the pins)

104.

connection is ok ( i can programm PIC12F629 with adaptor)

Tested.All ok.

I will test the old version of icprog,maybe it`s a bug...

I also use MPLab,maybe i do have the same prob. Where can i select
the device? I only use the "LIST" statement to select the chip.

?!?! I don't know what "let the smoke out of the chip" means...

in addition to the "list" command, you must select the device from
project, edit project, development mode in the MPLAB IDE.

okay, well at all electronic factories there are little gremlins who's
only job in life is to put a little tiny puff of smoke in each device.
If you let that puff of smoke out the device fails to operate. Bigger
devices get more smoke, like transformers, etc. Sometimes, as with PIC
chips, that puff of smoke is pretty hard to see. With other devices
it's easier to spot . . . try putting a 12v car battery or so on a 1
ohm 1/4 watt resistor and that puff of smoke emerges . . .

oh, wait, my bad . . . if you are getting a good "build" then the IDE
is set up correctly.

In the ICProg, take settings, hardware settings, and make sure you've
selected JDProgrammer, the correct com port, direct I/O interface, no
radio boxes checked under communication, and a I/O delay of at least 4
(mine is set to 10). At least that works for me.

cool, coool, cooool man !!!
let me copy this into my next book about alarm systems, please !

To take this to the logical conclusion, it is the puff of smoke that
provides the operating characteristics of the device. No more internal
smoke, no operation.
