No Delay Code?

by Mrmadsci on Tue Aug 21, 2012 3:21 pm

FIRST:Minipov3 from a kit
SECOND: Windows 7
THIRD: USB adapter (purchased at adafruit with the kit)
FOURTH: It did not light up when I turned it on.
FIFTH: I would imagine the fact that there was no delay code... I just simple don't no how to proceed.

It looks like you've installed the IC upside down. The end of the chip with the notch should match the notched outline silkscreened on the board

What coding issue? Your MiniPOV didn't light up and avrdude was unable to program it because the chip was in backwards.

Re-Tried Still game error - I don't have the DELAY code and don't know how to proceed (the chip lights up now btw). Trying sunning the make program-minipov and I simply get the same error.

I'm afraid I don't understand what you're asking for. What is the DELAY code? What error are you getting? Where are you seeing this error?

The error above is still there.... *As seen in the image above*

My problem is ... THIS STEP:

"Next, if you're using a USB to serial adapter cable, open up the file C:\WinAVR\bin\avrdude.conf in Wordpad and search for "dasa" so that it will take you to the part shown below. Make sure you see a line with "delay = 2000" in it as shown below. That means that we are telling the programmer to go slow (wait 2 milliseconds between commands) because otherwise it gets confused. If you're not using a usb to serial converter, this line isnt necessary, but it doesnt hurt either. "

This line "delay= 2000" does not exist in my document ~ I assume I'm suppose to add it however the "dasa" line appear many times throughout the document (does that mean i add it everytime the Dasa code is repeated? or just once at a exact point?)

Why does mine not have the delay=2000? - I'm assuming that it SHOULD hence why it says to make sure it is, however it doesn't tell me how to proceed if it isn't there.

You probably didn't download the modified AVRDUDE software from the tutorial at http://www.ladyada.net/make/minipov3/software.html
It is in the big red box
After unpacking the .zip file, you will find the delay=2000 line at lin e374 in avrdude.conf

Did you download and install the updated avrdude, as specified in the tutorial?

For windows, a zip file with a newer avrdude.exe and updated avrdude.conf. Copy these into C:/WinAVR/bin (or wherever you installed WinAVR/AVRDUDE)
