I am trying to make the "Cellphone operated Land Rover" project given in the EFY magazine, pdf attached.

The H-Bridge IC circuit is working properly and to my knowledge, everything in the MT8870 DTMF Decoder IC circuit is also soldered correctly.

I am using Nokia 2300 for my project and the original earphones that came with it. They work properly when listening to radio, or talking to someone over the phone.

However, the MT8870 IC does not give output when I connect it to my AT89S52 microcontroller. I have written a simple program to transfer everything from port 0 to port 1 (in which an LED board is connected) - so that the corresponding output of the MT8870 (binary) will be shown on the LED board. But it continuously shows 0000, even on pressing keys.

The connector for my phone is of the TRRS type - and my speaker wires have connection to TIP and the second RING.

Please assist me in my project. I am unable to understand where I have gone wrong.

first u should get the dtmf o/p ....
in u r case check the crystal ,discreate components especialy capacitor.....
to see the tone is recive see the strobe pin on decoder ic ..when tone recive this pin is hi .....it means tone recived propely

''However, the MT8870 IC does not give output when I connect it to my AT89S52 microcontroller.''
means you get the o/p when micro is removed.....if this is problem see the ground connections of both are connected propely by a continouty test....

How do I check the crystal and capacitors?

I will try the strobe pin, thank you for that idea!

kakshay92


If you don't have use of an oscilloscope the best way is to replace
the capacitors,then the crystal.

Check your soldering carefully.

@ kakshay92
attach circuit according to this schematic

i test it and it is working ok
first u has to be able to get out put of the decoder ic then go to controller that is second step
u can use this software to generate the DTMF tones in the pc or laptop
http://www.polar-electric.com/DTMF/InstallDTMFencoder.exe
use headphone with the laptop and connect it with the circuit
now when laptop generate DTMF tones according to that led showw the status of the ic output
is is an easy and cost free method to check dtmf ic
i use this program is so useful
use stereo connector with laptop to IC connection

I would be better if you check just the MT8870 receiver part first, remove your microcontroller and see the output of DTMF decoder using multimeter. this will ensure that a part of your circuit is working fine. then you can check controller side if things are going wrong.

Thank you everyone for your efforts! I went to my instructor and he suggested a few resistors and capacitor changes, am going to try that and hope it will work!

i am a hobbist. i work on 8051. just i have started with pic 16f877. but a bitter experiance is going on. as i am programming any code to my pic877 and putting it in my board and it is working, but the 2nd time it is not taking any program,I have experimented just 7 new one pic mcus. result is the same. please tell me the reason. my programmer is TOP3000(universal programmer).

@lak you can use the same code provided you are not using any s52 specific ports and registers.

I want to build a PIC16F684 sun logger using either a solar cell (0.5v solar cell or photoresistor). Any help out there?
