avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

Hi all,
After months of good use, both my boards Mega 2560 and Uno became unavailable for uploading sketch or burning bootloader.

Sketch uses 444 bytes (1%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 9 bytes (0%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2039 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.

Facts :

  • v1.6.20 of the boards

  • v1.8.5 of the IDE

  • Windows 8.1 64bits

  • Programmer: "AVR ISP"

  • Drivers are fine (the boards are well recognized)

  • Serial monitor works

  • I'm trying to upload the "Bare minimum" exemple sketch

  • Nothing in pin 0 and 1, nothing at all is plugged actually

  • Get Board info:

  • Uno : VID 2A03

  • Mega2560 : VID 2A03

What i tried :

Nothing works. If you have any idea.....

Thank you all !

Same here!

Ive got the same problem! If you find a solution please tell me!

It actually worked when I tried just “upload” (ctrl+U) and not “upload with controller” (ctrl+shift+U).
I know now where the problem comes from…
