Topic: Why can't i burn i sketch onto my ATmega8 with AVRISP MKII? (Read 607 times) previous topic - next topic



If i put my ATmega8 on the UNO card and plug in the AVRIPS MKii programmer. Then i can brun a sketch whitout using a bootloader. That works great! Still im using the internal 8 Mhz crystal.

But if i put the ATmega8 on a breadboard and plug this

Into this

And burn a sketch with the programmer. I got this error message:

Binary sketch size: 914 bytes (of a 7 680 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500v2_command(): command failed
avrdude: stk500v2_program_enable(): bad AVRISPmkII connection status: RST fail, Target reverse inserted
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
         Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
         this check.

I have tried to add a pull up resistor 10k, 4.7k and 1k between RST (pin1) and pin VCC (pin7) and try to burn a sketch with the programmer. The results was the same error message as before.

Do you know how i need to build my setup to burn the sketch onto the ATmega8 with my AVRSIP Mkii programmer?


you should connect vcc and gnd in to pins 20 and 22.
