 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,

I am a very first user of arduino. When I upload my program to my arduino, arduino programming application shows a error message. The following is the message which it shows "stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding". I have double checked Tool->Board and Tool->serial port before I upload my program. Before uploading the program, I have verify my program. The program code I try to upload is the sample in arudino application(Blink). Thanks for your replying.

arduino board: arduino UNO
laptop model number: MacBook Pro (2010 Mid) with Intel CPU
operating system: mac os x 10.8.2

You may want to enable verbose output (during upload) in Arduino preferences and post the log. The error itself is too generic.

Thanks for your reply,

But I still don't know what I can do to solve my problem.

Can you give me more specific information or steps? I am a very first user, thanks for your helping.

  • In the Arduino IDE (programming application) open the sample blink application.
  • Open the Preferences window (menu Arduino -> Preferences). Tick both options near "show verbose output during:": both for compilation and upload. Confirm with Ok button.
  • Try to upload your program (either press the right arrow button in the program's window or choose menu File -> Upload).
  • Select and copy the log text appearing in the window below the program editor.
  • Paste what you have copied into a new reply to this post.

When you write your reply, remember to enclose the log within a code block. A code block can be created by pressing the # button in the menu above, look at smiley smiley-wink. It starts with "code" and ends with "/code" enclosed in squared brackets. Here is an example, with an extra space that should not be there, but prevents its being formatted:

[ code]
Your log goes here...
[ /code]

If you remove the spaces, after you post your reply it will be shown as
Code:

Your log goes here...

Where did you buy the board from?

I bought my board from website

I think you should be more specific about which website (did you mean this site?).

Anyway, from your log I can see that your UNO is communicating with the Mac, up to a certain point. It stops at the moment when it should send information about voltage and oscillator frequency. Unless other people experienced the same problem and knows of a solution, it is almost impossible to make a diagnosis without running test that require a certain experience (have you seen the loopback test? do you think you could do it?).

The only things I can suggest are small changes without touching the UNO:
  • With the Arduino connected to the Mac (powered on), try press and release the reset button (near the USB port). You should see the orange LED near PIN 13 blink for a while, then stay on.
  • Try using a different USB cable.
  • If you can find another computer, try installing the Arduino software on it and see what happens with your UNO.
  • Search the forum for issues with the drivers for 10.8.2 and how people dealt with them.

If you cannot resolve the problem you may consider asking for a replacement.

Hi, if you are still around you may be interested to know that another person in this forum resolved a similar issue by connecting the Arduino through a powered USB hub.
