Problem uploading firmware to NanodeRF

Hello all.

I just received yesterday the quit purchased in emonTX, NanodeRF and a Programmer - USB to serial UART.

The USB to serial UART allow upload the firmware to emonTX properly but when I try upload a sketch to the NanodeRF always appear the message:

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

and always is flashing a red LED every one second in the nanodeRF board.

The settings in the Arduino program (ver 1.0.3) are:

-          - COM22 (is correct because it works with the emonTX firmware load)

-         -  Board: Arduino Uno

My OS is Windows7

I’m trying to upload in the NanodeRF, for example the “a_FixedPackets.ino” sketch.

Somebody know what is happened?.

I’m not sure the right way to connect the Programmer in the nanoderf board: the GND pin in the six-pin conector is the nearest to the SD socket in the nanoderf board?

Best regards.

Yes, ground is nearest the microSD socket.

Try unplugging the usb from the computer, shutdown the Arduino IDE and then start over again.  I get this every so often on various devices.

Also try pressing the reset button on the nanode before you upload.  Has sometimes worked in the past too.

Re: Problem uploading firmware to NanodeRF

I had the same problem with a recently purchased Nanode.  In my case all of the documentation was suggesting to set the board type to Duemilanove w/ ATmega 328.  However I eventually could only get it to work by changing the board type to UNO.  When I enquired about the problem they told me that recently shipped Nanodes have the UNO bootrom.  You may have an older board.  You could try setting the board type to Duemilanove w/ ATmega 328.

Hi all.

Finally the problem was a bad solder in the square CI!!!. If I twist the board, or press the IC with my finger then the LED's blink.

In one week I had a new Nanode in my house under warranty: the service from SHOP was perfect.

Thank for you support.

Best regards.
