Burn Out Picaxe

Post by BEST2V3 » Fri Nov 24, 2017 3:27 pm

Picaxe-14M2 Burning Out I have burned up too many (5) Picaxe-14M2 1412K1V chips and I don’t know why. I am using a regulated 4.82 volt power supply. I downloaded the USB driver for the AXE027 Picaxe download programming cable for my MAC. After programming the chip a half a dozen times and running the Debug option the program gives me an error message that says “Error: Hardware not found on /dev/ tty.usbserial-00001014!” Any ideas?

The program that was downloaded before the displayed error message still works. The lights still light and the display still shows the correct data but I can no longer reprogram it.
