How to check

I am uploding from arduino IDE to emonTx.

However, error occurs;

"avrdude: stk500_recv(): programer in not responding"

What wrong with it.

Sorry, but this error could be almost anything. If you haven't got it working yet, start by carefully reading here and check very carefully every step.

I often get this error and I don't know what causes it but as Robert says, it can have many causes. After a few curses it ultimately works again.

The Arduino IDE is generally the object of my wrath when this happens, but I realized the other day that it could be due to the fact that the programmer fits a bit loosely on the emonTX and perhaps the contact is not good enough, especially if the TX is moving (like when I have it on my lap or in one hand with the mouse in the other).

Rare, but it could be problems with the bootloader in the Atmega 328.
