I am having a similar issue with a breadboard Arduino. Using a CP2102 USB to serial adapter, which I gather is pretty similar

Hi again. Sorry that is another detail I should have mentioned. I have a 1pF cap on the DTR line   smiley-zipper

The TX and RX are indeed incorrectly labeled. I've grown accustomed to it though   smiley-lol

I literally can pull this off the breadboard and program a Pro Mini. What is the chances the seller has sent me two duff 328p and a duff 328p-pu, Very slim?!

I know the USB-Serial works
The components have all been replaced
The reset function appears to work
I have tried different parts of my breadboard in case

Thanks for the feedback, I am at the point of giving up on breadboard arduino smiley-sad

As a side note I installed XP Home in Virtual Box for giggles and the driver settings are the same for this device as in WIndows 7

Thanks for the reply smiley

I know the settings you mean, I remember seeing them on an XP machine I once used for Arduino. Sadly Windows 7 doesn't seem to have the same options





Does anything there make sense? I've reinstalled the driver from Silicon Labs a couple of times

Tore down and rebuild twice, still no joy smiley-sad

Aside from the usual points in the trouble shooting thread, anyone have any suggestions?

Some details

OS - Windows 7 64 bit
USB - Serial: CP2012 USB FTDI board (made by BA/TE, USB 2.0 to UART TTL 6PIN Module Serial Converter)
ATMega328p (also have a PU, same issue)
bootloader - Uno. All of my chips (3 now) were burned by the seller with the Uno bootloader
Changed: AT chips, capacitors, crystal, all jumpers. Have not changed resistors, reset switch (though this works), pin headers, LEDs (these work too)

This is driving me mad, more so because my other Arduino boards work fine with this setup

Hi again, thanks for the replies.

I should have mentioned those details. Both my chips have the Uno bootloader on them. I have tried 115200 and everything in between. I must have left it on 9600. The 9600 baud rate works fine for my Pro Minis

The author notes that later in the instructions. I have my rails linked already too (habit) I am at a loss. Can't seem to get the manual reset working either, though I never have been able to get the timing right before

HELP!

I have been trying to get my breadboard Arduino up and running for a couple of evenings now and if I had any hair I'd be pulling it out right now smiley-sad

I followed these instructions:

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-The-Easiest-Breadboard-Arduino-UnoE/?ALLSTEPS

I have the breadboard set up exactly as described. This corresponds with other breadboard Arduino clones I've seen so I am sure I have done it right. I've even replaced all the capacitors, the 16MHz crystal and even the chip itself smiley-sad

When I manually press the reset button I get flashing on pin 13 as expected. The software reset also flashes pin 13, so something is happening.

In the 0023 IDE I get 

Quote
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

In 1.0 I get just

Quote
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

(I need 0.23 for the sketch I am using)

I am using a CP2102 USB to serial adapter. This works fine, it passes loopback tests and can program both my Pro Minis

Any ideas please?

Can't wait for the eBay flood of Pi to begin. Loads of people without a clue will have ordered one and they'll either hit the desk draw or the bay smiley-grin
11  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Nick's Pong Clock, Arduino and Sure 2416 panels advice on: April 16, 2012, 04:01:05 pm
I've got the dimming working on button presses like so

Code:
if(buttonC.uniquePress()){
       dimTheClock(false);
             
     }
     if(buttonD.uniquePress()){
        dimTheClock(true);
       


Cannibalised some of the button functions and added C and D. Bit primitive though smiley-grin

I still can't get figure out how to derive the hour digits to call the true and false values smiley-sad

Gagh! I can't figure out how to poll the RTC to get the hours figure   smiley-red

Edit: I have the dimming working, oddly intensity 0 gives me the result I need, would have thought 0=off..... Does anyone know how I'd be able to take the RTC hours figure and decide if it were between 10pm and say 7am? The whole code is here I am using is here

Hi Geoff,

Thank you for taking the time to reply and a great post too. I think I am tantalisingly close to what I want to achieve, I just need to figure out how to construct my argument (along the lines of if hours = > 22:00 and <06:00 then intensity = 8 else intensity = 15)

Thanks again,

Lucian

Hi all, newbie to both these forums and Arduino in general so go easy on me  smiley-red

I built a pong clock going by the instructions on Nick's blog (http://123led.wordpress.com/about/) and it has all gone swimmingly. I made a few adjustments to his design but the code is near enough all his code verbatim. What I'd like to do is add some functions (like dimming the panels after 10pm) but I am finding it difficult to decipher the guts of this sketch. Does anyone know of threads where I can find some more information regarding controlling these panels? I've read a few posts of WesfW from these forums and know he laid down a lot of groundwork for the libraries that Nick's clock uses

TIA, I hope this is the right section  smiley-wink
