My problem is no matter what I do to upload a blink program to my Arduino pro-mini, I’m getting the not in sync error(below I have attached the error for reference).
Let me briefly explain my issue, I’ve like 60 pro-minis in that 30 are loaded with some code previously(and all are working fine), now I’ve lost the code because of my HDD issue(unfortunately I don’t have a backup) now the things is I’ve to code the remaining pro-mini with the same code, I tried to retrieve the code using AVR Dude but I was getting this not in a sync error. later I tried to upload using a blink program from IDE and cmd line too still I was getting the same error while uploading. So, I tried with another Promini to my surprise same error and another and another I tried all 30 pro-minis all are giving me the same error (All 60 pro–minis are from the same vendor), I tried to upload the blink program to the remaining 30 prominis it worked like a charm. I don’t know why the heck, those pms are not syncing. I tried uploading in different ways all to vein. What I observed is the pm’s reset led blinks rapidly for few seconds whenever I connect power and when I press the reset button and while uploading too. Please help me out here
Here are things I’ve tried:
- I tried to upload using Arduino uno, Mega, USB - TTL, FTDI…
- changed the USB cable.
- tried with a different computer.
Nothing worked with the preloaded pms but worked with empty pms. I went through a lot of posts for around two weeks nothing worked.
Below is the error message
