Uploaded Sketch


I have just received a mega2560 board and was wondering if there was a way to check if there was anything uploaded to it?

Many thanks


There is always something programmed to the chip. Especially if you bought the board from an official seller. The led near pin 13 will be flashing.

Many thanks for the reply. Its a 2nd hand board and I was just wondering if there was a way to see if there was anything useful on it :) Is there a way to check and then download the sketch from the board?

Not as a sketch, no. You can possibly get the machine code from the board, but the source code (sketch) can't be derived from it.
