I just recieved K150 USB PIC programmer, and it doesn't work i am getting error that says:


Reset failed. Please check...

Communications port, currently [ COM 4 ]
Board connections and power
Mode= [ K150 ], make sure this setting matches programmer board

I have seen many posts that require photo of my programmer board. Here it is:


I followed those steps:
  1. Run the "PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v1.7.0.exe" program in the "PIC Programmer Drivers" folder to install the driver.
  2. Plug in your PIC Programmer.
  3. Go to Start, and right click on "Computer". Click "Properties".
  4. Click on the "Hardware" tab, and then click on "Device Manager".
  5. Click the + next to "Ports (COM & LPT)". There should be an item labelled "Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port". There will be some text in brackets - such as "COM3". Make a note of the number.
  6. Run the "microbrn.exe" file in the "PIC Programmer Software" folder.
    It will usually fail to reset the programmer the first time it is started - the correct Serial port has not yet been selected. This is normal.
  7. Click on the "File" menu, and choose "Programmer". Now choose "K150".
  8. Click on the "File" menu, and choose "Port". Enter the value you noted down earlier and click OK.
    The programming software should now reset your programmer and you are ready to go!]

I accuired this programmer in polish online shop

This is not genuine DIY PIC programmer - it is a pirate copy.

This forum is for users of genuine DIY products. You should ask the reseller for help.
