Need help - need to flash a LED on PortA

    this is driving me insane. I am unable to figure out why my code
    (below) to blink a LED on PortA does not work. The test circuit is
    fine. Everything compiles and burns onto the 628A PIC chip. But it
    does not do jack.

    Could someone please help me out here.

    Thank you,

    ;portsend.asm to show to flash a led on porta, ra0.

  2. You need to set an org for the code memory. Try using CBLOCK
    rather than org for the file registers, if you want to write your
    program in absolute.

    Hi, pic code starts at org0 not 20. You can find some templates on the
    microchip site. Some chips have adconverters on porta, they come up as analoge
    from reset.
