avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout

Hi!

First of all, I'm still new to the Arduino World and need some help programming my ATMEGA8535 microcontroller, because I got following error message:

avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): timeout communicating with programmer
...

Before working with the new ATMEGA8535 I downloaded the files for Arduino/hardware (here: Alternate CORE files for Arduino)
then I connected Ardunio Uno and microcontroller like this

Arduino - ATMEGA8535
5V - VCC(pin10)
pin10 - reset (pin9)
pin11 - mosi (pin8)
pin12 - miso (pin7)
pin13 - sck (pin6)
GND - GND(pin31)

After his I loaded the ArduinoISP sketch to my AduinoUno, switched to ATMEGA8535 as Board, and Arduino as ISP as programmer.
Trying to load the blink program to the microcontroller ended up with foregoing error message. Besides this error TX and RX LEDs are not blinking during the upload like they do normally

Other microcontroller can stil be programmed easily

I hope you have a solution for me.

I got the solution!

I had to use "upload using programming" :slight_smile:

I'm finde now
