Arduino IDE won't upload script to Trinket Pro

by b1g0af on Sat Sep 23, 2017 12:50 pm

I know similar issues have been posted hundreds of times, but I I've not seen this question asked: Is it at all possible that some combination of short circuits between GPIO pins could be causing the upload problem?

I have several 3v Trinket Pros. 1 of which the Arduino IDE will not upload sketches to. Because I am an idiot, the board is already soldered onto headers and a LiPo backpack which is all soldered onto a project board with lots of other components. I should've tested the board before soldering... lesson learned.

I did a lot of continuity testing while soldering up the project, so I think it's unlikely that I have any issues with shorts, but I just need to know if that would even cause a problem uploading sketches before I spend the time desoldering the Trinket Pro from the headers to swap in a different Trinket Pro.

Mac OS X 10.12.6 (Sierra). Arduino IDE v1.8.1. Adafruit AVR boards package 1.4.9.

Here's the verbose output from the upload attempt:

Is it at all possible that some combination of short circuits between GPIO pins could be causing the upload problem?

Yes. But unfortunately same could be said for any project. Specifics would depend on setup. Can you post a photo of your setup showing all connections.

I could, but I don't think it would be useful. I had this breadboarded up and working with another Trinket Pro, so it's not a design problem. Should I just bite the bullet and swap out the Trinket Pro for another one (UGH!) and see if that fixes the problem?

Here's a screenshot of the layout in case you find this helpful. Obviously, imagine a Trinket Pro in place of the Arduino. In place of the piezo, an Adafruit Audio FX Min Sound Board and Adafruit Mono Class D Audio Amplifier. The 3v coin cell represents the LiPo pack (the LiPo Backpack is not represented, but I have it soldered to the Trinket Pro).

Thank you so much for any insight!

Yeah, there's a lot going on. If the Trinket worked before you incorporated it into your setup (always a good idea) and then it stopped afterwards, then you know it's something there. To troubleshoot at this point you would need to systematically go through and test things.

You're suggesting swapping out Trinkets, so sounds like you're able to desolder the existing one. Maybe you could try that and see if it works stand alone.

Also, photos of the real setup tend to have a way to show realities that circuit sketches don't. For example:
In place of the piezo, an Adafruit Audio FX Min Sound Board and Adafruit Mono Class D Audio Amplifier.

How are these connected and how are they being powered?
