I have what I beleive is a PICAXE 28X1 chip, the #s on the chip are PIC16F886, 08103MD, is it a 28X1. I have done numerous things to get this thing working( http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8353 bought it from this site). Checked voltage all the way through the board, checked my COM drivers ( I have a serial cable, not usb), went through all of the PICAXE modes in the options of the Programming editor, made sure the COM1 was selected in the programming editor, 4.5 volts(3 AA). I cant get the board to respond at all, I get this message http://img526.imageshack.us/my.php?image=98844507yw3.png and I have tried all of those solutions. I need help, assume i know nothing about this. I am the epitome of a newb.
Please help. i have made an investment with no outcome yet.
