adafruit metro board

by dirtyoledog on Sat Jul 02, 2022 12:12 am

I have a board I was asked to attempt to program. I was given the code, believe I have set all arduino options properly, but always get a fault. there is a lcd screen attached which simply just lights up and does nothing..here is the error..

avrdude: stk500_paged_load(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x10, resp=0x90
avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x0000
0x00 != 0x0c
avrdude: verification error; content mismatch
avrdude: verification error; content mismatch


here is the program I was asked to send to the board. It is my understanding that these items were at one time working

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

#include <RH_RF69.h>

//This is code for Arduinos. You need Adafruit's RadioHead library to compile this.

Do you have the board set correctly? I.e. it reflects exactly the board you have attached? And what is the board?

i have the software set to arduino uno. avrisp mkII is the programmer setting. more than this i am not sure what to check. the board is an adafruit metro.

hopefully the image is displayed

those are the details I have,
so Dave, do you know what the error message represents and since you are asking about the board, is their a difference based on the different boards?
if you know the solution for one board can you share it, ?

It would seem to be a Metro 328. Yes, boards are all different and you must set the Tools->Board selection to match the board you have. I see there is an "Adafruit Metro" board in the "Adafruit Boards" submenu of Tools->Board. I suspect that will work.

Can you past all the build output?

there is a adafruit circuit playground under tools boards, nothing else

what is the problem based on the error code. adafruit states, set board to arduino uno. i have already sent the output previously. what does the error code mean. and what do i do to fix it

Yes, UNO should work since it's just a copy of the UNO. Please post all of the build output for more context.

i sent this code to another arduino uno..no issue, then sent it to the original one using a new usb cable..it compiled and upload but the lcd is just glowing, and or shows gibberish....and still no definition of the error
