Dear Arduino Community,
some time ago, I bout an Arduino and started learning to build curcuits and write programs with the Tutorials on this page. I like the Arduino project a lot. But now, I have a strange problem that I have not been able to solve. I would be very happy I anyone could help me.
I bought several Atmega328P-PU without the bootloader. I tried to install the bootloader using the follong instruction: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard I followed all steps accurately, but for some reason I keep getting errors. Below, I repeat the steps, just in case there is a stupid mistake that I do not recognise.
I opend the Example "Arduino ISP"
Second I selected my board and Chip.
Third, selected the standard programmer
I uploaded the Code which worked fine.
I wired up the cables in the according way. Every single connectetion was checkt several times. It must be correct.
These are my capacitors and the crystal
Now, I want to upload the bootloader onto the new Atmega328P-PU. I selected the programmer "Arduino as ISP"
And uploaded the bootloader.
Which resulted either in this error
Arduino: 1.0.6 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328" avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x15
Or in this
Arduino: 1.0.6 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328" avrdude: stk500_program_enable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x50 avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check. avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
Or in this
Arduino: 1.0.6 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328" avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
Of course I browsed the web and found some hints what to do. First, people suggested to add an external power supply. Second, that the delay value in the heartbeat function should be flipped between 20 and 40. I tried both but none did work.
I also performed some checks to make sure my hardware is working: - I could upload the blink example and could really see the blinking LED. So the arduino with installed Atmega238P-PU runs fine - I also unplugged the Atmel238P-PU from the breadbord and installed anotherone. And all resulted in the same error.
Does anyone have another suggestion on what to do?
