When your trying to upload the sketch this way you will need to press the reset button right before it says "uploaded" on the IDE.  Its kind of a hit and miss situation that why it good to have a programmer that connects to the reset/DTR pin so it will reset when its ready.

SOLVED.
I found it its the example sketch called IRremote->IRrecord

The 1st pin on the left is VCC
2nd pin: GND
3rd pin: RESET/DTR
4th pin: RX
5th pin: TX



Now I also have a simple programmer.  



The driver should automatically install when you connect the programmer to your computer however if it doesn't you'll need to install it manually. see link below.

4  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / IRREMOTE decode problem on: May 25, 2013, 01:04:52 pm
Im trying to build a circuit to replace my fan remote controller

Im using the irremote library (http://www.righto.com/2009/08/multi-protocol-infrared-remote-library.html) and can decode the fan controller and I know how to write the code to send as well. 

However the fan is not reading it.  I don't know if there's a specific format (NEC, SONY, RC5 etc) or how many times it needs to be sent.  The decoder doesn't give too much information about the signal except the HEX (A32AB931)

Perhaps a DPST switch, one pole for the battery and one pole for the charger?

What DPST switch (an image would help) can I use that once I remove the battery the power is cut off to the circuit.  I was thinking of a relay however it keeps latching which is not good.

Yes it does include a voltage regulator from the charger to the circuit.  However, is this only accomplished with an increase in voltage detection?

I have a circuit that is connect to a battery and a charger
See picture below.




What I need is when I disconnect the battery the charger is also disconnected from the circuit.  How can I do this?

8  Using Arduino / Sensors / How to Detect voltage Noise in the analog pins. on: March 14, 2013, 10:52:29 pm
I'm using the analog pin (A0) to control a relay using a power supply and a battery.  The reading is perfect until I remove the battery.  I get noise and numbers are all over the place. 

I want to know what code can I write to detect that the reading has gone berserk so I can notify myself?

Here is the reading below coming out of the serial monitor

Where did you get the bluetooth module?

Ok it works.  That shows how important a simple capacitor has on a circuit.  I added a 22uF electrolytic capacitor to the rails and it worked.  See picture below.

The Arduino is connected at the other side of the BB - is the power not connecting across to both sides?
Yes breadboard have connecting wires at the bottom to the other rails.  As you can see on picture 3 Im testing the voltage on the opposite side of where the Arduino wires are connected to the rails.

The voltage regulator seems to be working fine because its taking in 9v and converting it to 5 volt but when it goes thru the chip its not outputing the correct voltage.  Why is that?
12  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Arduino Breadboard Voltage error troubleshoot help on: February 11, 2013, 10:39:45 am
I have an arduino on a breadboard and having an issue with the voltage on the digital pin 13 outputing an low voltage when connect to a volt regulator.  Why is this happening? because when the breadboard is connected to an Arduino UNO power that is connected to the same power supply it works perfectly fine.  See images and descriptions below.  Thank you for the help.

Notes: Power wires are connected at the bottom of the breadboard
Components:
Arduino on breadboard
Power Jack
9v - 300mA Power
L7805CV 5voltage regulator

Arduino Code:
Set to output LIGHT ON on digital pin 13


The voltage on the rails when breadboard is connected to power is 5 volts


The voltage on digital pin 13 when connected to power is 0.370 volts (why?)

 

The voltage on the rails when connected to arduino power is 5 volts

 

The voltage on digital pin 13 when connected to arduino power is 4.74 volts

 
Why is the voltage on digital pin 13 not the same when connected to an Arduino Uno Power to an Power supply using a voltage regulator?
13  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Eagle CAD board changing Pad position/location on: December 15, 2012, 10:37:04 am
I'm trying to make a one sided board on Eagle CAD however some of the components pad are on top layer.  How do I change those components to bottom. 

I want the blue pads on the image below to be red.

But is there a way to do it without an SD card?
15  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Upload sketch using another Arduino on: September 05, 2012, 07:54:11 pm
I'm actually trying to find a way to upload a sketch from arduino to another arduino chip.  Like have one arduino upload the blink sketch to another arduino chip (so it can blink too) without using the computer
