I to be trying to update the firmware on my Maslow Arduino using Windows 10. I complied with the advice in the various other trident-gaming.net and still no luck. I tried version 1.25 and also 1.26 that the firmware and also made certain the folder was unzipped, i am utilizing COM 3 which shows up as the Arduino early out programming port, and also I made sure no various other programs are running that could have a port conflict. I also see the USB light is on when the cable is plugged right into the routine port and also I view that the 12 VDC light is on v the strength supply cable plugged in. Once I shot to upload the firmware i keep gaining the same timeout error.

You are watching: Avrdude: stk500v2_receivemessage(): timeout

I found an additional forum that claimed to press the reset button on the plank just before uploading, and also that likewise gave the same timeout error. Ns did take the peak board off and also tried pushing an “erase” switch as well. This issue persisted prior to I pressed the erase or reset buttons, neither of those changed anything.

screenshot looks like the setting are correct, every the libraries space there.


Error copy:"Arduino: 1.8.13 (Windows 10), Board: “Arduino Mega or Mega 2560, ATmega2560 (Mega 2560)”

Sketch provides 57294 bytes (22%) of regimen storage space. Preferably is 253952 bytes.

Global variables usage 2009 bytes (24%) the dynamic memory, leaving 6183 bytes for regional variables. Best is 8192 bytes.

An error occurred while uploading the sketch

This report would certainly have much more information with“Show verbose output during compilation”option allowed in paper → Preferences."

Update: I simply tried on an additional computer as well, exact same timeout issue. Seems to it is in isolated to the Arduino.


Device Manager claims the an equipment is working appropriately as well.

I’m several hrs into troubleshooting this, nothing is helping so far. Any aid is an extremely much appreciated.

try switching the output mode:

That is if you room using the Arduino mega… your regulate panel states you have actually an arduino Due. If that is the case, then you have to install the arduino early 32 little bit drivers and also you need to use the due code, the isnt hte very same as the one you present in the arduino principle It looks favor this:

. Check out this wiki post that describes how to carry out it.

Thanks because that the reply! The instructions stated to choose Mega, yet yes my board claims DUE shield on it. I will shot it out.

OK, i selected the Due as the board as you suggested and now I have a new error around “no such record or directory.” I witnessed that this error deserve to be native trying to pick the firmware paper from a zipped folder, but I made certain to extract this folder already. Likewise you have the right to see from the screenshot the the libraries tabs room visible. Any kind of idea top top this error? full message copied below. Looks choose it’s failing in ~ the very first #include line.

Also, i tried the serial monitor test from your various other forum instructions and sent “digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);” come blink the LED and the LED go in fact blink, so that seems like I have actually communication.

I sent this Blink program example and also it worked: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/BuiltInExamples/Blink

I just acquire the "no such document or catalog error with the firmware still.

Oh my gosh, i figured that out. Ns was using the virtual assembly instructions for the Maslow however they were for a Mega Arduino, so ns was trying come upload the not correct firmware. I discovered the due firmware ~ above github and It worked.
