It sounds like your pot is hooked up wrong or something electrical is wrong with the Mega since you said the Uno works. Did you try running the A0 pin straight to ground? Just to see if the Mega will report back 0? If that works take the wire out of A0 completely and see what the results are. 'Normally' you get fluctuating values. If it comes back as 1023 there is a problem.
Even grounded?Sounds like a short somewhere, but if you ground it, I'd expect that to short the supply.Can you post your actual code, not the stuff you posted in reply #2.
I already did it, but it only shows 1023...

Are you connecting a wire from A0 to the GND port on the Mega directly?If so something is wrong. Even if there is a short running it directly to ground should bring it down. Is your Mega sitting on top of a metal table or something? There are no shields installed right?
Yes i connected a wire from A0 to GND directly too, and tried the ReadAnalogVoltage program, but it shows only 5v. And i havent tried the 54 digital pins , only the pwn outputs, but i think the problem is with the ATMega2560 ;/. And it doesn't have any shield on it, and i am using it on wood table.
And i havent tried the 54 digital pins , only the pwn outputs
QuoteAnd i havent tried the 54 digital pins , only the pwn outputsThis phrase worries me.What have the PWM outputs got to do with the problem here?
Sorry it was the digital 9 next to the pwm. I used the digital pin 9 to the example AnalogInOutSerial, but the led got the 5v all the time.
QuoteSorry it was the digital 9 next to the pwm. I used the digital pin 9 to the example AnalogInOutSerial, but the led got the 5v all the time.You're on the wrong side of the board. The PWM pins are output only. Reading an analog value is done on the analog pins. The ones on the other side of the board.
Using the led at port 9...
