Hello! I have a very mysterious and frustrating problem. I was happily working with an Arduino Mega. I left my workplace and later came back to find that my Mega was no longer working!

The Arduino IDE still recognizes the mega when I plug it in.

 The power indicator LED does not turn on.

When I plug something into 5V and GND, it does turn on, but the Mega itself remains off. The digital pins APPEAR to be unresponsive.

Programs can still be uploaded to the Mega, but the Mega does nothing once the programs finish uploading.

What could be the problem? Is there any way to fix it? A quick reply is always awesome!

How did you come to this conclusion?

Means nothing - explain the observed fault, e.g. does the old code run?

What do/did you have plugged into the MEGA?

Was it placed on a conductive surface?
