'PICStart Plus Error'
2008\07\27@073304 by Richard Seriani, Sr.

I have been running a PICStart Plus for several months with no problem.

I successfully programmed/reprogrammed a PIC16F883 four or five times
yesterday. The last time I tried, I got an error "Unsupported programmer
detected, EF." I double-checked that I had the correct chip selected and
even tried another (16F84A) - without success. Removing power  and
restarting the PICStart was no help. I tried restarting MPLAB and, then,
when that didn't help, I rebooted the computer. This morning, the symptom

A check of Google resulted in several hits on "unsupported programmer
detected", but they had different error codes (other than EF) and were
related to older versions of the PICStart Plus and/or MPLAB. I got no hits
on the phrase on the Microchip site, including in the forum.

Can someone tell me where I can find out what the "EF" in the error code
signifies? Has anyone else run into this and, if so, what did you do to
resolve it?

Thanks for the help.

Richard, assuming that the problem is in the Programmers Pic
firmware (and not in the hardware) may be you could
reprogram it.  As you are talking about programming a 16F883
I think you have a new version (the one that comes with a
18F662 or something like that).  This device has the ICSP
pins available and the .HEX files are in the
IDE\PicstartPlus folder .  If you have another programmer
you could make your Picstart come to life again.
