Upload Error

Hi Guys and Gals,

I really new to this whole world.
I have a Geeetech Prusa I3 X 3D printer that I can't seem to get the software onto the GT 2560 board.
It gives me this error.

Binary sketch size: 115,780 bytes (of a 258,048 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): timeout communicating with programmer

Can anyone help me out with this. I've been told my board is dead, but I can see the yelow light blink occasionally when I'm uploading the Marlin software. I'm using Arduino version 1.0.6 becasue I have to use it for this Marlin version to work on the board.

HELP ME PLEASE!

Thanks in advance,

Dave

What have you got the board type set to in the IDE ?

Hi Shannon,

I'm new to this, but are you asking under TOOLS - Board setting? If so then I have it set to Arduino Mega 2560 or Mega ADK.
