The unused pins should be left unconnected, as they are outputs, the only input is pin 4 mclr, which is not used.
Your pic sould be only taking about 760 micro amps, if its taking over 10 milli amp there is something wrong.
Dave so if pin 4 is an input, should it be tied low or high? Remember for me to test this accurately it will take me the 90 days to complete the test and if it fails I will have to test it for another 90 more days.
