hey

i was working with my arduino uno r3 on a metal plate and i think there was a short circuit. i saw a little spark.
so i think i blew up my arduino.

but there are some good things, the on and L led are lighted when the usb cable is connected.

but when i try to send a program to it i get the " avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 " error.

is my arduino realy blown up? is there a way i can test it?
is it posible just the ic is broken so i can change it easy?

thx

Does the uC feel warm/hot to the touch? That's usually a good indicator that it is gone.

You could also try the serial loopback test, see if the USB/serial adapter chip is blown.

"does the test mean the serial monitor from arduino?"
Yes. and Yes. That little chip is about impossible to replace if you don't have hot air soldering station.

No - that usually indicates the little square chip next to the USB connector is dead too. That's why I said "That little chip is about impossible to replace if you don't have hot air soldering station."
