I have arduino duemilanove 328P board. It worked fine for like 2 years, never had any issues with it or anything. I am using windows XP.
I uploaded arduino as ISP sketch and used it as a programmer - no problems whatsoever. Yesterday I accidetaly connected 12V to +5V pin and the ground of the power source to the ground on arduino - my breadboard circuit was a real mess - I guess I should have paid more attention.
Since that moment I can't even upload anything, all I get is ->
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
. When I reset the board the LED doesn't blink.
I bricked it didn't I ?
Now what can I do ?? Would buying a new Atmega328 chip with bootloader work ?
DId I f#ck up the uC IC itself or is it possible that some other components got forked up as well?
As far as I can tell the FTDI chip works as the RX LED does light up when I try to upload sketches, plus the power regulator seems to work fine too.
