Arduino not working

Hey,
so I got an Arduino Nano recently and now I tried to run a blink sketch. But it doesn’t change anything when I change the delays, the built-in led just goes on for maybe 0.1 seconds, then it turns of for 1.
I checked in the Internet and chose the correct Port and Arduino type in the IDE, so it should work. Also there are no problems highlighted when I upload it to the Arduino.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

P.S: I will attach a sketch I made that should make it blink.

blink01.ino (152 Bytes)

Are you able upload without any error? Post the log.

ole1711’s attached sketch:

void setup() 
{
  pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
}

void loop() 
{
  digitalWrite(13, HIGH);
  delay(1000);
  digitalWrite(13, LOW);
  delay(1000);
}

When possible, you should always post your code directly to the forum, using code tags (</> button on the toolbar). This will make it easier for people to look at it, and thus more likely for you to get help. When your code exceeds the forum’s 9000 character limit, it’s OK to post it as an attachment, but in this case you’re nowhere near 9000 characters.

No, I get an error, here is the log:

Problem uploading to board.  See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

(not sure if this is what you mean, as I mentioned, I'm a complete newbie in this)

Yes but you can switch on verbose mode in preferences and mainly the log from uploading.

I can't find that verbose mode :o
However, do you know what these error messages mean? :smiley:

Select Tools > Processor > ATmega328P (Old Bootloader).

Ahh, yes, you are unable to upload. Try to use Nano with old bootloader.

Tail of log is:

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

pert:

Wow. This should be to simple to be true (It isn't though)
Thank you guys for all your help! :smiley: I will enjoy my Arduino now and start tinkering with it :slight_smile:

You're welcome. I'm glad if I was able to be of assistance. Enjoy!
