Stk500 error

After compiling a program without errors, and then attempting to download it to an ATMega2560, I get the following error messages

stk500v2_setparm(): failed to set parameter 0x9e

stk500v2_command(): unknown status 0xc8

initialization failed, rc= -1

stk500v2_setparm(): failed to set parameter 0x01 ........etc.

I confirmed that the Arduino board was connected to the correct serial port.

I have previously programmed ATMega2560s without any difficulty

I have scoured the manual and FAQs etc, but have been unable to find any reference to this error, except in this Arduino forum  but this seems rather inconclusive :-(

Please could someone point me in the right direction.

Many thanks.  Regards Alan K.

First thing would be to Google it.  There are several hits for related errors...could be a hardware issue.

Other things to try:  Download an example sketch from the Arduino IDE to the board.  Do you get a similar error?

Download an example included with the Arduino Compatible Compiler for LabVIEW.  Do you get a similar error?

If you only get the error with the above LabVIEW code then you could post the code to see if it is an issue with it specifically.

Thanks Stefan.

I did as you suggested and Googled it, then tried loading a minimal sketch to the board using the Arduino IDE, and got a similar result!

I bought a new ATMega2560, connected it up, and everything is working fine.

Many thanks for the help
