i have xbee shield on top of an arduino uno, when i power the board up for the first few seconds i'm able to reset the board using the reset button on the xbee shield however after this period the reset button doesnt reset the board. Does this mean my xbee shield is broken?? i have tried this xbee shield on different arduino boards and the same thing happens. Further more, when i upload sketches with the jumpers placed in the usb position, i get the following error from the arduino software.

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

Please help anyone thanks

two different problems.

Reset:
- Can you reset the Arduino with the XBeeshield on top with the reset-switch of the Arduinoboard?
- Check the wiring of the board with a magnifier, maybe it is bad connection/solder.

Avrdude
- often these messages point to wrong board selection, but also a bad contact can cause this
  check installation section, there are many threads with similar messages

There is more than one XBee shield. Knowing which one you have is important.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

i have another xbee shield mounted on another arduino uno and these error don't occur.

Thanks

That is very strong evidence there is XBEE shield nr 1 is faulty. Have you checked the soldering?
If it was DOA you might send it back to the shop?
