Burning Bootloader in Atmega 328P-PU for Arduino Uno

I am trying to burn bootloader in Atmega 328P-PU Here are the steps I have followe 1. Upload ArduinoISP sketch 2. Connecting Atmega328p-PU to breadboard Arduino Uno -> Atmega328P-PU(on breadboard) pin 13 - pin 19 pin 12 - pin 18 pin 11 - pin 17 pin 10 - pin 1 (Reset, A 10k ohms resistor from Reset to Vcc) 3. Changed Programmer to Arduino as ISP 4. Burn Bootloader

As I have Atmega328P-PU i didnot change or edit the avrdude.conf (hardware\tools\avr\etc) in arduino folder

I tried changing various things but the ERROR remains same

Error : avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000 avrdude: Yikes! Invalid device signature. Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check.

Please help

And that error is......... ?

avrdude done. Thank you.[/Error]

This is the complete Error Message Sir Thanks

Your pin connections are correct.

I assume you're powering the target chip with 5V, and that you have a 16MHz resonator or crystal attached to pins 9 and 10, (with load capacitors if using a crystal). You should also have a capacitor across the target chip's supply. 0.1uF is all that's needed.

If you have everything connected as above, do what the error message says and double-check all connections. An invalid signature indicates a possible bad connection.

Thank you Sir I had not connected a capacitor between chip Supply Yes i have powered the board by 5V and 16 MHz crystal with 22pF capacitors

After uploading the portion of error now is

[Error]

avrdude done. Thank you. [/Error]

The device signature is changing Randomly Please can you tell the Reason behind this

spycatcher2k: Can you take a close up, in focus picture and post it, showing both the Arduino connections & ATMEGA Connections

You took the words right out of my mouth. :)

@omkarkekre - Did your problem get resolved?. If yes, how?. Appreciate if you could share the solution.

I have the same exact problem where every time I burn the bootloader, the following device signature changes

avrdude: Device signature = 0xffff00

[u]My setup :[/u] OS = Linux Arduino IDE = 1.6.9 Arduino ISP = Atmega 328p Target uc = Atmel 328P-AU

I even soldered the pins directly but did not help. I have the 16 MHz crystal and the corresponding caps in place. In one instance, tried with the internal 8 MHz clock. Did not help.

Appreciate any thoughts and help.

Note: We have burnt the bootloader so many times earlier without any issues. But this time it seems to be a bit sticky.
