More information please.
Board,revision of the board,the version of software you are using.
You get any errors while uploading sketch to the board?

Hot air soldering gun.
A pump that blows really hot air.
Melts solder just like regular soldering iron.
It's good for removing IC's.

It's going to be a problem if he doesn't have the hot air soldering pump.
Or skills with it.

Well you can still program it over ICSP header.
You can still use the Arduino IDE.
Plug Either an arduino or an AVR programmer(supported by arduino IDE) and upload your sketches.
Don't forget to select the correct programmer in the programmer list.

Tried uploading with Arduino 1.0.3?

So 1 is not working at all?
When you plug it into the PC(no other arduino is connected) does the PC recognize that something is plugged into the USB port?
If not it may be something wrong with the connections or the USB interface.

Maybe it's the faulty USB to Serial chip
Check if the pins are correctly soldered to the board.
Inform atmel that you have received a faulty device if you don't find the solution in the end.
But
you should try it on other computer.

Ok for now take magnifying glass and see if theres something wrong.

If any PC doesn't see anything then it's definately problem with the connections or the chip itself.

Try in safe mode.
9  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: is my Arduino dead? on: March 09, 2013, 04:42:20 am
Yup.Regulator is fried.
One complaint however.
It isn't exactly easy to read what you have said.
Your English isn't good at all.

Anyway check the backup one to see how many volts come from the unmodified arduino to check if the "dead" one is working correctly.
If the voltages aren't the same then the regulator has died.

Doesn't the Mega 2560 Rev 3 use 16u2 as USB to serial instead of 8u2?
11  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: USB serial Port not found on: March 08, 2013, 04:25:13 pm
Do you have 1.0.3 or the beta arduino IDE?

After I installed it and pressed burn bootloader in arduino IDE(note i didnt connect anything to the programmer)
it said that...

That is a normal response if you don't have anything connected to the programmer.  It will probably work okay.  You don't necessarily need to update the firmware on the programmer, unless you plan to program AVR chips that run with clocking below 1 MHz.

I have one of those USBasp V2.0 programmers, by LCsoft Studio.  It uses an ATmega8A chip.  I was able to upgrade the firmware to the latest 2011 version.  Seems to be running fine and the slow clk option is also working correctly.

If you really need to update the firmware on the programmer then you will need another programmer to program it.  Do you need more info?


What i meant was that arduino recognized it.
I know it is supposed to say that when nothing is connected.

I'm guessing Leo had a glitch and it corrupted it's bootloader.
Let's wait for comrad and see if he managed to flash the bootloader.
