You were asking about the download circuit in an earlier post. I am going to assume this is your problem. Double check your work here and be sure the headphone jack is going the right way. I always seemed to get that headphone jack backward when I used to work with picaxe --I could never tell if the manual was showing my the jack upside-down or if they were showing it as if you were looking through it.


was the earth on the headphone jack comes detached 

i removed the plastick cover and soldered it in place works grate now
