Hello. I'm at the stage of building a 3D printer (actually almost finished). Unfortunately i managed to burn Arduino MEGA (I manually moved stepper motor and it has acted as a generator). However, despite burned voltage regulator (AMS1117) and the USB controller (CH340G) printer still worked properly controlled by the LCD screen with a potentiometer and gcode from the SD card. But the computer does not detect the arduino and I needed to upload the updated soft to operate the printer. I have arduino UNO and want to use it to program MEGA. So I hooked up the pins: UNO>>> MEGA 10 >>> RESET 11 >>> 51 12 >>> 50 13 >>> 52 5V>>> 5V GND>>> GND Also tried to hook the ICSP connector on MEGA. UNO>>> MEGA ICSP 10 >>> 5 11 >>> 4 12 >>> 1 13 >>> 3 5V >>> 2 GND>>>6 I also tried to repeat these operations with ~ 10uF capacitor between GND and RESET at UNO (supposedly required to turn off the auto-reset). But somehow it does not work. Of course i upload ArduinoISP on UNO, and then in the IDE I used "Upload using programmer" with set MEGA as a target board. When I use the command "Burn Bootloader" gets the message after all: avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x1e000 0xff! = 0x0d avrdude: verification error; content mismatch And the LED L MEGA blinks ~ 2 times per second. On the internet I found that this message does not necessarily mean bad loaded bootloader, but when I upload any program (even Blink) Mega does not respond (although IDE returns to the upload completed successfully) and the LED L is lit constantly. What am I doing wrong, or should be doing differently? I tried the method described here: http://www.gammon.com.au/bootloader and the program says that the bootloader is uploaded correctly (L LED is blinking), and even later check will also gave me a message about the correct bootloader(see below). But still I am not able to properly upload even simplest sketch on MEGA.
When i use Atmega_board_detector i get: Atmega chip detector. Written by Nick Gammon. Version 1.12 Compiled on Feb 16 2015 at 17:08:31 Attempting to enter programming mode ... Entered programming mode OK. Signature = 1E 98 01 Processor = ATmega2560 Flash memory size = 262144 bytes.
