looking for some help!
Everything was working well and then not too long ago I started having some problems with a Panda 2. I keep the code under source control for my own use, and reviewing what’s changed I don’t see anything that could be causing such an issue.
first, trouble downloading. I suddenly need to click the play button to download (C# 2010 express) mutliple times, and hit the reset mutliple times before I can get it to download. it says building assemblies to deply, and just hangs, sometimes if I hit reset it will continue. sometiems it hangs saying rebooting. frequently I’m getting check your hardware etc. I am making 3-4 attempts sometimes before it all starts working, unplugging and reconnecting the USB etc. it always works eventually. I never had any trouble before.
the device seems to “lock up” sometimes, this could very well be a problem with my code I know. if an exception is thrown internally and Im not hooked up to the debugger to see it, would the effect be the device simply freezes?
and last but not least, the garbage collector seems to be going into overdrive or something. I’m used to seeing the table reporting the memory and the results of the GC, this used to run every minute or so, but now (again nothing substancial has changed in the code) the GC seems to be running almost constantly, 2-3 times a second the GC 4msec etc etc is appearing in the output window. its overrunning all my debug statements and I can’t even see them any more. what could cause that? and how do I fix it?
