'[PIC]: Picstart Plus Problems'

Hi Guys,

I've been using a Picstart Plus for quite some time to program PIC16s. Around 3 months back, my Picstart Plus suddenly stopped responding to MPLAB.
A friend of mine told me that changing the MAX232 on the Programmer would fix the problem. I did so and amazingly, it worked.

Just a week back, I got the same problem again. This time also, I canged the MAX232, but still the programmer is not responding. I'm getting a stramge feeling that the PIC17 on the programmer might have died.

Can anyone suggest me some methods to fix my programmer. Someone must have got a similar problem and might just have fixed it.


Although I am constructing a programmer for 16f877s, I'm thinking of shifting to PIC18s soon.  And for that I'll need the Picstart Plus.

Please suggest me some ideas to fix the Picstart Plus

Regards,

Jeethu Rao

What have you been doing to kill your picstart plus?
Connecting/disconnecting the  RS232 cable should not be enough to kill it.
Certainly not two times!
