Tree won't Stay Off PDF Print E-mail

If you've built your tree and it works perfectly but doesn't like to stay off (i.e. you press the power button, it shows the power down sequence, goes dark and then a short time later it turns back on) it is because we made a mistake with a few of the 16F685 PICs that is fixable.  Apparently I made a small batch of them with the watchdog timer enabled and missed it in testing.  There are two remedies for this...
  1. If you can program the pic yourself, just download the code and re-burn it (making sure the watchdog timer is disabled)
  2. Contact us and we will happily swap out the pic for one with the watchdog disabled.

What's in the Kit

Before you get started, make sure that you have all the parts.  They are grouped in plastic bags to make it easy to find the parts you need for each step.  In addition, you will need a soldering iron, solder, screw driver, and a nice wire clippers.  It isn't necessary, but a good wire forming tool makes it much easier to get a great looking tree.
