Can't upload to Metro - "Programmer Not Responding"

by tardistrekkie on Thu Apr 22, 2021 10:47 pm

Hi there,

I'm having trouble sending information to my Metro and was hoping y'all could advise.

First note - the power light comes on when I plug it in, but if I hit the "Reset" button there's no response. I saw in the tutorial that the "L" light should blink when the button is hit but that's not the case for me. Does that mean that the bootloader is corrupted?

I made sure to install the latest drivers (v2.5.0.0) and updated the board libraries in the Arduino IDE

Here's what my Device Manager looks like:

I tried just uploading the generic "Blink" Sketch and got this response:


Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
Arduino: 1.8.13 (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

Sketch uses 924 bytes (2%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.

Global variables use 9 bytes (0%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2039 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.

Problem uploading to board.  See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

Not sure if there's anything I can do at this point or if I have a bad board. Thanks for your time!

Have you tried resetting (or double resetting) while it's searching for the board?

You you have a serial connection to the board?

Just tried doing both the single and double reset while it was searching, unfortunately nothing seemed to react on the board.

I did pull up the serial monitor, but nothing populates in the window while I'm running it.

Try selecting "Adafruit Metro" as the board.
