Hi odeshel,

Is the TC-08 connected to the PC directly or via a USB-Serial connection?

It sounds like the device may not be receiving enough power (it requires approx. 7V on pin 7). Please refer to section 3.3 in the user guide

The other option is to use a USB - serial converter such as the one available from our website:

Drivers can be downloaded from the web page.

I hope this helps.
