Hi all,

After many months (Actually years) of good and flawless service, My LVB
Tracker woke up one day with the display showing Z|||Z|||Z||| or
sometime >|||>|||>|||>|||...

I tried several things: reset, checking the internal 5V supply voltage,

I tried to reprogram the PIC using the PicProg program, but got only
this reponse: "chip not recognized".

I followed the instructions in the document BuildingtheLVBTrackerv2.pdf
(dated Dec 29, 2007) but no success

Any idea? anyone?

Pictures enclosed

73 & thanks,

Shamai 4Z1WS
