Hi

i have a Enhanced JDM and PIC 18F458.
i want to programm it with ICSP.

in winpic800 and Picpgm i found the Pic and the JDM automaticly.

Green led is on.
if i want to write, red led flashes and green led gets darker.
Nothing is written on the pic, Winpic and Picpgm gets errors like adress: 0x0000 written 0xEFA2 read 0x000...

i mesured Vpp an Vcc to Gnd. Vpp is 9.9V, Vcc is around 2V.

in Pic Manual Vcc minimum is 2V.

so what could be the problem?

The VCC seems too low.

Try another software and see if anything different. PICPgm or IC-Prog

i took Winpic800 older and newest version, PICPgm and IC-Prog.
everything the same Vcc is to low, but if i have no circut connected Vcc is 5V and Vpp is 12-13V.

So maybe the load of my circut is to high and pulls down Vcc??

edit:

i took a Powersupply 0-15V 0-1A and a Multimeter.

I power up my complete Circuit with 5V (Vcc) and mesured the current it needs. it took 55mA !

i think jdm is not able to support 5V ~60mA?

so is there any solution to supply Vcc from an external power source??

if i took my powersupply for Vcc and Gnd and connect only Vpp Gnd Data and clock to JDM i dont find the pic??

JDM is onlu be able to provide about 10-20mA on VCC. So, do not connect the VCC pin when you doing the ICSP programming. The chip should be powered by your target board all the way.

ok i thought so,
but if i supply the chip with my onbord powersupply (7805) and dont connect the Vcc pin of JDM. I dont find the pic!

if i connect all over ICSP i can read, and of course find the chip in programms like winpic800, picpgm etc.
if i now cut vcc from ICSP and power up my 7805 i dont detect the pic and read/write fail.
I have no idea why??

I think there are voltage conflict.
