Would like to see a group for newcomers to the wonderful world of Arduino. Under that group I would like it segmented by hardware. After that I would like to be able to search within that group for any problems that I am encountering with my own hardware.
I just purchased a genuine uno in Dec 2020 and now a micro in Jan 2021. Inspired by the you tube 32 function button box that used a pro micro.
Sadly the pro micro I purchased did not work. I uploaded a sketch to it but did not use the exact board. Used micro board selection since there was no pro micro listed. After that it had two red lights and failed to upload anything.
I am currently trying to get access to the installation and troubleshooting forum without success. The button to post is missing from my screen.
I did search the forum for my problem.
My problem is uploading example sketch to genuine Arduino micro. Trying to upload the blink sketch to verify it is working like it should.
I know this is not the forum to post these questions. I did read the instructions on how to get the most out of the forums. I apologize in advance for this social faux pas.
Thanks in advance for any comments or queries.
