1  Community / Products and Services / For Sale -- Liquidware Touchshield Slide(s) on: September 04, 2012, 01:45:49 pm
I hope this is proper place to post this...if not I'll remove it.

I have 2 Liquidware Touchshield Slides that I do not have much use for.  One is brand new, never used and the other I have tinkered with a fair amount. 

Both are in perfect working order.  I also have one of their Arduino Gadget Cases that fits an Arduino and the Touchshield.

On the Liquidware website the TS Slide is $175 and the Gadget case is $120.

I will be flexible on price.  If you are interested, reply and we can go from there.

Dave.

I am also having some issues with the new Antipasto IDE and Touchshield Slide.   Liquidware support is challenging to connect with...where did you send your support request?  Thanks.

Mischa -- I completely understand, reinstalling the whole machine is something I can do pretty easily as I do full backups and can kick off the rebuild anytime. I also run the IDE on an old XP laptop and it works well, but I have had USB driver issues on that machine, so if it acts strange you may want to look there first.

This problem is also referenced in other posts.  I had the same problem, but my system worked until a Windows Vista auto-update process went bad.  There are posts that say to disable several services, like Bluetooth, wireless networking, etc.  Also a suggestion has been made to remove and reinstall all Java code.  I tried it all to no avail.  Finally I scrammed the hard disk and reinstalled the system from backup and that worked.

Sorry, not the best prognosis.

I had the same problem with Win Vista.  It began after a Windows Auto Update process had problems.  I tried the Restore process, no luck.  I tried everything referenced above, no luck. 

I finally scrammed the HD and restored from backup.  THAT worked.

Robert -- Thanks for the reference.  I'm a newbie but looking to learn fast.  This helps.

I was having the same problem.  Also, when I started I showed 2 COM ports in the Arduino drop-down:  COM3 and COM4.  The UNO board was connected to COM4.  At one point COM4 was deleted and only COM3 remained.  After that I had the resp=0x51 errors.

I tried the diode between reset and 5V. Also, I disconnected the UNO and went to Windows Hardware Manager and scanned for hardware changes.  COM4 was then displayed. I selected it, compiled my sketch and everything worked.

Thanks for the suggestion. Can you explain what the "reset-diode-5V" connection accomplished?

This was completely my problem.  I installed the Antipasto IDE on a different, newer Vista laptop.  Everything worked!  I suspect the problem may have to do with the old  Win XP laptop and USB V1, maybe being underpowered, etc.

At any rate, after compiling and uploading several sample sketches, the Liquidware Touchshield Slide seems to work fine.

And yes, the TSS works great with the UNO board.

Hi James -- I should have documented further:  Yes, I followed the directions, pressed the program button on the TSS. I used the Antipasto IDE to enter and compile the sketch for the TSS.  I had a dialog with Mike at Liquidware and he told me to use the Arduino IDE to program the Arduino UNO board and use the Antipasto IDE (latest version) to program the TSS. This is what I have been trying without success. I have tried several easy sample-code sketches that I got from either the Liquidware Wiki site or their "Open Source Hardware DIY Gadgets" book.  Nothing has worked so far.

Hi, I can't seem to get to first base with TS Slide.   I tried the example below and got the problem where avrdude has a problem erasing the chip. 

 I am new to Arduino programming so this might be pretty basic.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

void setup()
{
background(0,0,0); //this paints the whole background black
stroke(0,0,255); //the outline of the next shape I draw will be blue
fill(0,0,255); //the inside fill of the next shape I draw will be blue
}

void loop()
{
gettouch(); //find out where a finger is touching
ellipse(mouseX, mouseY, 3, 3); // draw an ellipse(x, y, width, height)
}




Compiled OK, tried to upload to the Touchshield Slide:
Got the following back:

[exec] reading  ############################################################ 100%  -0.00s
