    Hi all,

    I am having trouble getting outputs to work properly with a 16F88.
    Everything works as expected when using the debugger but when I run the program by itself the outputs are not activating high.
    I have tried pulling up MCLR to VCC though a 10K resistor but that did not help. I have tried setting MCLRE both ON and OFF as well.

    __CONFIG(WDTE_OFF & MCLRE_ON & CP_OFF & BOREN_OFF & FOSC_INTOSCCLK & PWRTE_OFF & LVP_OFF);

    INTCON = 0x0; // Disable interupt
    CMCON = 0x7; // Comparators OFF
    ANSEL = 0x00; //set digital inputs
    ADCON0 = 0x00;
    ADCON1 = 0x00;

    //enable weak pullups on portB
    nRBPU = 0;

    TRISB6 = 0;
    TRISA3 = 0;
    TRISA2 = 0;
    TRISA1 = 0;
    TRISA0 = 0;

    do {
    PORTA = 0x00;
    __delay_ms(1000);
    PORTA = 0xFF;
    __delay_ms(1000);
    } while(1);

    All outputs alternate high and low (LED's flash) when running with the debugger but they do not light at all when not running in the debugger.

    Any ideas?

    Oops, I think I solved it. I had a GND pin wrong on my breadboard! :eek:
