Topic: Old and Newly Purchased Mega Constantly Timing Out! (Read 769 times) previous topic - next topic


So last night I was trying to upload a sketch to my Arduino Mega and everything was lined up correctly. All the pins were in the right positions, the right board was selected and the right serial port is selected. I try to upload the sketch and I keep getting the message.

avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout

I was rather annoyed and I need my mega for a presentation soon. I went to the store and ended up purchasing another Mega. I come home and the same thing is happening, it keeps timing out when I try to upload a sketch. I have tried multiple USB cables, multiple connections, tried with it bare (no connections).

What is the problem here?! Its really getting on my nerves and there are no !!! in my sketch either, which I had read previously may be the culprit.

Any ideas?
