J-Link doesn't work

Hi

My J-Link can't connect to my target board which is Digi Connect ME (NS7520) development board.
The following are the erroro message copied from J-Link GDB-Server log window.

***** error message ******
ERROR: Could not find supported CPU core on JTAG chain
ERROR: Could not connect to target.

J-Link connected
Firmware: J-Link compiled Jun 28 2007 10:45:08 ARM Rev.5

Resetting target and trying again to connect...
ERROR: Bad JTAG communication: Write to IR: Expected 0x1, got 0x7 (TAP Command : 2) @ Off 0x5.

ERROR: Could not connect to target.

J-Link connected
Firmware: J-Link compiled Jun 28 2007 10:45:08 ARM Rev.5

Resetting target using BP@0 and trying again to connect...
ERROR: Could not find supported CPU core on JTAG chain
ERROR: Could not connect to target.
****** end of error message *****


It also pops a window up and says "TCK (pin 9) low, but should be high. Please check target hardware."

I am sure my target board is OK. Don't know why the J-Link doesn't connect to my board.
Could anybody help !!

Hello HenryChou,

I have tested the Digi Connect ME NS7520 Eval board with J-Link and it works fine.

How is your J-Link connected to your target hardware?
Do you have a standard JTAG 14-pin adapter?

Best regards,

Alex

Hi Alex

Yes, I do have JTAG 14-pin adapter. But I did not use it. I used the 20-pin cable since the original Digi connect ME board had only a 20-pin JTag socket.
Actually, my J-Link was working fine for the past week. Somehow it just did not work today :(

Is there anything I can do to examine my J-Link for further information?

Regard,
Henry

Hello HenryChou,

did you change something since the last time J-Link GDB Server worked?
Did the J-Link GDB Server stop working after a software update?
If yes:
Which software version did you use before J-Link stopped working
and which software version do you use now?
Does J-Link.exe connect to the target?

Best regards,

Alex

Software setting, No.
Haredware setting, Yes, unplug JTAG, and couple hours later re-plug in JTAG on the Digi board with no power supplied.

Did the J-Link GDB Server stop working after a software update?

No. No update. The GDB server stop working after I re-plug in JTAG on the Digi board.

which software version do you use now?

J-Link ARM V3.74j

Also tried v383a, no luck :(

Does J-Link.exe connect to the target?

Not now. It was ok :(
