hello folks..recently i have started using PIC kit2 programmer for my project.I have done a couple of tests like led blinking,ADC reading with a PIC16F876A micro.Today i faced a problem.While programming the micro with PIC kit2 programmer which is connected to my laptop through a USB cable ,it is showing an error
"PICkit2 VDD voltage level error" "Check target and retry operation"
However, when i am connecting the standalone PIC kit2 programmer ,it is showing no error. To ensure that my PIC kit2 is perfectly working,i have done the troubleshooting as given in http://www.auelectronics.com/Q5.htm and found out that it was perfectly working.
When i am connecting the micro and trying to program the above error props up on screen.
help me :(
