I have already asked a question on this forum on how to get an LED light up using a pic16f59 with pickit 3 (The post can be found here). Some people have pointed out that it must be a problem connected a pickit on my pic. I wonder how to do this. As for now, I am using the pickit 3 and I am connecting the PIC as follow:
pickit 3 PIC ----------- ----- 1 14 2 35 3 5 4 13 5 12
Also, I am connecting the VDD (pin 15 and 35) to 5V, VPP to 12V and I have also added a bypassing 1microfarad capacitor on VDD. I also connected all VSS to ground. Please refer to the PIC16F59 pinout below.
I wonder what I am doing wrong? Should I add more capacitors? I am using the right capacitor (1 micro-farad) in the first place? Please someone help. I have been doing this for more than two days with no success.
