hi im working on a PWM signal output from a microcontroller using at89c2051.
The status of my project is that I successfully produce the desired PWM signal but, my problem is I cannot stop the process of stopping the PWM signal when I switch it to stop.
The algorithm of the program is simply like this

1. when switch 1 is pressed the microcontroller produce a PWM signal
2. when switch 2 is pressed the micrcontroller stop producing the signal or clearing the output pin of the MC.
Now as I have said above I successfully produce the desired PWM signal but when I switch it to stop. The PWM output pin remains to produce the PWM signal..Honestly this program is really working previously and I have used this program several times ago but now when I try to burn it on a new microcontroller it doesnt respond to its previous state.. I also try to change different at89c2051, 3 mc to be exact, but still im getting the same problem..
Im thinking that the maybe the programmer have a defect or something, but im not so sure and I dont want to take the risk of buying a new programmer cause it costs alot.

Can anybody help me to find what is the problem causing this and please teach me to resolve it..I have attach the program and the schematic of my project. please help me people thank you so much.

well schematic is not so big to have a problem in it.

You can load a simple LED blink program to see if your controller is fine or not.

I think problem seems to be in program for making it non stop PWM. the reason is.. PWM works with timer so along with clearing of PWM pin, you should also clear TR0, and TF0 so that timer stops and interrupt flags can be cleared. and to start PWM again, you have the init function.

You'll also have to make sure the SW1 switch is off else the pwm generation will start again.
better implement sth like this....
JNB  P1.2, Main;check if START is pressed
JNB P1.3,PWM_INI ; go to PWM setting 1 if STOP not pressed
sjmp Main

hey! i wanted to simulate my circit using proteus. i have a sugar cube relay in my circuit....but i dont know which one is that in the device libraries of the software. any help? thankyou.

@Michal, that rocket is too heavy for itself and trust is not enough unless afterburners are fed with fuel properly.

Hello, its possible to make a amateur rocket with this engine, or something simillar, which be able to flight?

Hello sir, is it ok to use 12.000MHz oscillator in IRswitch, because the requirement written in the post is 11.059MHz. And i use PIC1018 as an Ir receiver

Hello sir, your blog is kind of helpful for us especially students. May I know do you have the coding for decimal to binary using proteus 8. My mini project is about to convert decimal to binary just like a calculator. The output is LCD. A bit confusing is the decimal to binary coding on proteus 8. pls help thanks.
