Good write up... thanks for the details

New to Arduino and programming first time user so the direction

6. Start your favourite terminal application.  Serial Monitor will work fine.

does not tell me what I should do as I do not have a favourite Terminal application and don't know what Serial Monitor is.

I am sorry to hear you are struggling with Google.  This should help...

Thanks for the whole process, but I'm currently stuck at step nr. 7. I don't really understand, what do you mean by "Connect the terminal application to the serial port for your board."

How are we supposed to do that?

Hmm, that's it? Okay, got connected. But still, wasn't able to do anything actually.

Considering changing 1. Atmel and then 2. FTDI.

If you see your typed texts in terminal, you do not need to change the FTDI.
That's what this thread is all about: figuring out whether your USB/serial chip (for you FTDI) works or not.
If you do not see anything, suspect FTDI and anything it depends on (assuming you did all steps correctly).
The latter doesn't mean Atmel is OK.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

As a novice to Arduino I have the following questions regarding:

< Loop-Back Test Instructions >

QUESTION
      " 6. Start your favourite terminal application.  Serial Monitor will work fine."

Q1:does (6) mean:  Clk on Serial Monitor icon top, right hand edge of Arduino IDE screen?
-------------------------------------------------- 
      "7. Connect the terminal application to the serial port for your board. 

Q2:does (7) mean: perform the procedure described in (8)"Send data..." ;
 the data should be echoed back to the Serial Monitor from the Arduino UNO

Yes.

No.  When using Serial Monitor you have to select the serial port before opening Serial Monitor.  In the IDE click Tools then Port then the serial port associated with your board.

Couldn't you just disconnect the Serial Converter and loop back right there.

larryd

What happened when you tried?

"Serial Converter"
What converter?


.
No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
