Topic: Arduino not working properly after shorting ftdi ic pins. (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic



I was reading the contents of some 24lcXX eeproms I had lying around, everything was going fine until I shorted gnd and some ftdi pins. From there no further reading was possible.

I started thinking that the short caused the premature death of the eeprom.

But I tried two more eeproms with negative results.

Apart from this the Arduino seems to work properly, I can upload sketches and use serial.* with no strange behavior. So I don't know where the problem is.

Can someone help me with this?

Thank you very much.



Just in case someone find this useful,

It seems that the short f**ked the ftdi chip up but I managed to get it fully working again by reprogramming the chip following the instructions you can find in the page below.
