nRF52832 cannot connect to J-Link

Hi, I followed the steps to setup my nRF52 DK with eclipse. I could also build the code without errors. However, when I try to debug it, it says cannot connect to J-Link.

The following is the output on my console

  • So you Jlink is not working.

    If you are running Windows, look in the device manager and confirm that you can see the JLink in the "Universal Serial Bus controllers" section (its the section at the bottom)

    If you can't see the Jlink there, the chances are that its got a problem.

    If you bought your Jlink from eBay or AliExpress, I know that some of these have problems.

    I have my suspicions that the JLink software checks whether the Jlink has a blacklisted serial number and if so, it "bricks" it.

    There are however ways to unbrick Jlinks, which have been posted on various other forums.

  • Yeah, I couldn't find Jlink in the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" section. I suppose I'd get a new one and try it again. Is there any other way to debug where I don't have to use the Jlink at all, only the DK? Thanks
