Arduino Uno Board is not communicating back

by abid96 on Mon Dec 16, 2013 4:21 pm

Hey, so I recently bought the Arduino starter pack, and while I was uploading programs to the Arduino Uno board using a mac, it just stopped uploading several days later. I tried using a pc, using a different cable, and checking the usb ports, but I can't get anything back from the board. It receives power since the light is on. What should I do? Thanks in advance

Do you see any LED activity when you attempt to upload to the Arduino?
Do you see any LED activity when you press the reset switch?

The LED with the L is on when I plug the board into my computer via usb. When I press the reset button, the L LED flashes, but when I upload a program from my mac, nothing happens and the Arduino IDE says avrdude: "stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding".

It sounds like the USB/Serial chip is not communicating. These can sometimes be revived. When did you purchase this board?

I actually bought the board relatively recently. It was ordered around 11/13/2013, and it came in ground shipping around 11/26.
