emonGLCD firmware upload

Hi folks,

I hope this e-mail finds you well.

I have been playing with emonGLCD and got compilation ok, however I'm unable to upload into device. I'm getting this error message:

Binary sketch size: 24,700 bytes (of a 32,256 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

Looks like that there isn't communications with my emonGLCD, however I'm unsure how to start debug it. I'm using a FTDI 5V cable, GND-GND paired, and no lights turn on on emonGLCD (I'm not sure what expect to see in emonGLCD). 

I'm stuck here, do you have any clue on what can I do to fix it?


Best Regards!

If you copy and paste "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00" into google you will see that this is a common arduino problem!


I'm assuming you are using the Arduino IDE? 

If so make sure you have the right board type selected in Tools->Board. Also make sure you have the right serial port selected in Tools->Serial Port.

Otherwise try the other tips mentioned on http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/help.html
