Try a quick test by reading count register when it is stopped, checked
One of the beauties of PSOC Creator, fast simple self test project generation.
I hate to be so ignorant, but can you mention the method by which you read the registers per your instructions? It sounds really useful, but I am so new at this that everything is a struggle.
If you right click a component, go to its datasheet, there is a section on
APIs that can be used to read/write a components key registers, like
the primary counter in a counter/timer....
