pic32, Programming… boot config memory Address: ffffffff Expected Value: 0 Received Value: 0 Failed to program device

I have been trying to reflash my corrupted PIC32 (specifically a pinguino32-usb-otg board) using MPlabX IDE and a Pickit 3.

My connection was:
PC to pickit 3 via USB
pickit 3 to PIC32 via 6 pin header

I tried to flash the chip but got the following error:
Programming...
boot config memory
Address: ffffffff Expected Value: 0 Received Value: 0
Failed to program device

After much scratching of my head I finally figured out the issue – the board was not powered.

I plugged in an adapter (9v in my case) and powered the board.

I attempted to reflash again and it was successful.

Problem solved – it was as simple as the board needing external power.
