1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Did I brick my arduino board ? on: February 10, 2013, 10:08:03 am
If you only applied 12vdc to the +5 and ground pins, I would bet you fried the voltage regulator and associated components. If you try and replace the 328p and it does fix the problem, you may have to change the board to a duemilanove under tools. Remember when programming the board is powered by an already regulated 5vdc from the USB port (The regulator isn't directly used). One more thing, when powering the board and circuits with different voltages, ALWAYS connect all grounds, unless using a 1.5-5vdc relay thats controlling high voltage AC. Good luck!
2  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Retrieving sketch from programmed 328p on: February 10, 2013, 01:16:21 am
Has anyone figured out if it is possible to retrieve the sketch on an already programmed 328p? I lost a very complex sketch a year ago and am desperate to get it back. This is what I am trying to recover, and thans for any help.

Try not to be so demanding or angry. This is the simplest way to light an LED for five seconds then turn off permanently. It is just modified blink. I have tested it, so no worries. Enjoy.

int led = 13;
void setup() {               
  pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(led, HIGH); 
void loop()
digitalWrite(led, LOW);

I have some experience with this. Can you give a bit more detail to give me a better idea of your goal?

Also the leonardo can emulate a mouse. You may even only need an uno to read and echo. A regular mouse/gaming mouse should work.
Good luck.

I don't have a definitive solution for you, but if you use a teensy 2.0 mini as a mouse in one USB port, then have an uno pluged into another USB port reading the mouse data, and echoing it to the device. This may work and there is already code online for both I/O boards. I believe arduino libraries have the code needed.

I live in Illinois and the electronics/DIY movement is about zero. Im a "hard core" maker at 19. I started in electronic circuits at 6, destroying lots of toys and making the parents very unhappy. Im in college for electronic engineering and the hardest thing were going to do is program a basic stamp... Boring! BUt in short I agree with oldPMGguy. I hope the "nerds" like us (and the local parts suppliers) dont die off. I would be lost with out the local radio shack, Since all the other little tech stores died off or moved to china... smiley-confuse
