  • Pic keeps resetting whilst Programmer is connected

    Using U2 USB in ICSP mode it programmes ok but then the Pic resets randomly. Works ok with a 18f4550 but with a 18f4620 it keeps resetting, it is connected as per instructions, PGD and PGC are not used for anything else, PGM is connected to ground via 100k resistor. If I unplug the programmer the pic runs ok, I tried just disconnecting the connection to the MLCR but that made no difference. Any ideas why this is happening..

    Check the voltage on the MCLR pin. Is it lower when the programmer is connected? Have you configured the MCLR pin as a reset pin? If so, what value pullup resistor is connected?
