Topic: Just got a new Mega 2560 - full of hope, but fail :( (Read 5368 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi Melbfella,
As far as I can tell from the bootloader code, the Mega should flash its yellow "L" LED rapidly 3 times whenever it is reset (as the Uno does).  Does yours do this when you press the reset button?  Does it also do it when you attempt to upload a sketch?

Hi Tim,

No, the Mega does not flash at all when the reset button is pressed, but my Uno and Nano do.

When I try to upload a sketch, same thing, no flashing (apart from single blink on the RX led).  However, it seems the Blink sketch is installed on it which flashes the 'L' LED red about once a second.

Thanks for your reply.
