ST-link V2 Connection error.

How do I solve this error? "Error: No STM32 target found! If your product embeds Debug Authentication, please perform a discovery using Debug Authentication"

I use SWD. I made the cable for SWD communication. The cable is connecting ST-LINK V2 between board. 

Yesterday, well, was connected to STM32CubeProgrammer.

But today it wasn't connected suddenly.....

I did everything I could by exploring the STM32 community.

Changed ST-LINK V2, the cable, reset mode, etc......

I saw massage what "ST-LINK error (DEV_TARGET_CMD_ERR)" in hardware rest mode.

But I don't solve this error.

Please help me....

ST-LINK/V2 are very often illegally cloned, even the labelling of the packaging card and the housing are copied elaborately.

There are several ways to recognise a clone: you could, for example, open your ST-LINK/V2 (one screw is under the sticker on the back between the logo and the edge, another one is roughly where you have the word "SWIM") and you would then find a fake STM32F103. If you don't want to damage the sticker, you can also try to upgrade the ST-LINK/V2 with the STM32CubeProg (disconnected and right in the middle "Firmware Upgrade"). If this upgrade fails, which you can already tell from the missing or implausible serial number, you have an illegal clone and should contact the manufacturer of this clone - or buy an original ST-LINK/V2.

Hello. MikaeIM

It is answer to your question.

1. customer board

3. The custom board has a switch that changes Boot 0 to low level when pressed.
    So, for download a '.hex' file, power on after press the switch on the custom board..

4. Cube Program Ver. is least versoin.

5. I connected the laptop and the custom board using ST-LINK V2's STM32 (20pin) SWD.

6. Step of before and after the issue is same.
    but, I did re connected the GND(4pin) because GND was open(because the solder ran out.).

Thanks

Best regards

>Yesterday, well, ...

maybe you damaged it (static discharge) ; can you try a new one?

with SWD connection, need no boot action. (use system software reset , in CubeProg setting)

@gouku Your ST-LINK/V2 look original and if they are also recognised by the STM32Cubeprog and the firmware can be updated, you can assume that the ST-LINK/V2 are working.

However, you are guaranteed to have a different environment than the TO, so it doesn't say much if you only write that you have the same problems. @MikaelM post also applies to you, so please reply to it.

Hi Peter

The issue was with the wiring.! Target Vcc (Pin no 1) was not connected to 3.3V.

I connected to 3.3v and now it works fine.

Thank you.
