Put a piece of wire in the header pin labelled Reset, and the other end in one of three headers pins labelled GND.

There's no picture of the wire!

Before a wire can be used, it must be properly declared and defined.
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.

• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!


Well, this explains the test but not what to do when it fails, so its really not an explanation at all

not even stickey

OSX 6.5.8 (fresh install)

Board 1 -- Arduino Mega Failed loopback test
Board 2 -- Arduino Mega Failed loopback test
Board 3 -- Arduino Uno Failed loopback test
Board 4 -- Arduino Uno Passed loopback test

Arduino 1.0

I have three boards which are no longer working: They were working fine at least 12 hours ago:

all three failed the loopback test. One did not even register with a usb serial connection.

This has been tried on at least 3 computers so far

any advice would be helpful
