Cannot Properly Upload GRBL (has worked before)

Hi all!

So I am building a CNC machine using my arduino uno as the hub. The machine has already been built, but I am rebuilding it using the same arduino. It already had all of the software installed. I first soldered a set of axes together, tested it with the arduino, it worked, all was going well. It wasn’t until I soldered two new axes to the board that I ran into problems. When I try to connect to GRBL controller, I get this error: “No data from COM port after connect. Expecting Grbl version string”. So, I tried to reinstall GRBL, using XLoader, it did not work. I then tried it using the actual arduino software, to no avail. I get this error:

I’m not sure what else to do. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Drop the "APP" version as many report minor glitches with it.

Go with either 1.6.5 r5 or 1.8.2 as the PROPER program.

Not very sure about GRBL but am coming to that when parts arrive.
