Arduino stuck in dfu mode Answered

Hello, I recently updated the firmware on my areduino uno. It is this model, "               Product ID: 0x2ff7               Vendor ID: 0x03eb  (Atmel Corporation)               Version: 0.00               Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec               Location ID: 0xfd140000 / 4               Current Available (mA): 500               Current Required (mA): 100               Extra Operating Current (mA): 0 " I put the arduino in dfu mode, then upgraded it with the firmware in the package contents of the arduino app of a mac. I typed in dfu-programmer AT90USB82 erase and it worked well, Then dfu-programmer AT90USB82 flash /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/arduino/firmwares/atmegaxxu2/UNO-dfu_and_usbserial_combined.hex. That also worked, then finally dfu-programmer AT90USB82 reset. It worked fine last night and this morning, but I found it would not take the code meant for a Leonardo board. I put my board in dfu mode again, then when I went to push the firmware again it would not take it saying it was already installed. I did use the erase command first though. Now my arduino is stuck in dfu mode. Will it just reset itself after a while? I have left it unplugged for an hour and the sketch book still won't show it's port.

3d printer won't move Answered

Hello, I have recently hoked up the motors and sensors of my xyz printer to a ramps v 1.4 running marlin  firmware. I can't make anything but the z axis to move. I put every motor in the z axis and found the can make the motors work. So, why wont they move when they are in their correct plug for their axis?

Gen6 board for 3D printer not connecting anymore.

Last night my printer decided to have a nervous breakdown and refused to show in the print program. Still shows up as a Com port but that's about it. Had quite a few software installations and driver updates since last use, so I confirmed the connection problems with a XP install on a USB stick that I used as a backup system for the printer in the past. Proterface, Repetier host and so on simply refuse to connect. With just the green LED on the board troubleshooting is not easy, same for checking a ROM dump with no bootloader installed. Of course easy way out would be to flash the original firmware again but the manufacturer refuses to supply the file without paying close to 100$ for the pack including a programmer - which I don't need as I have working ISP programmer based on Arduino. I would not mind installing a different firmware as I don't even know what the original is based on, but without the proper config for the printer setup and calibration will be a pain in the ..... All I basically wanted was to test some new hotend designs but it seems the printer did not like being unused for several months :( Questions: Is there any easy way to check the board or why it is no longer communicating with the software? Should I try to install a bootloader so I can dump the installed firmware? Was planning on turning the printer into a properly working machine anyway one day, but not totally from scratch with new electronics if you know what I mean :(

Understanding/Interpreting a firmware update

Hi, I'll try to break this down as simply as I can, because there are bits I barely understand myself. Here's what I've got physically: Orca electronic speed control (ESC) for my RC car (based on unknown, unmarked MCU) Orca USB Link for updating firmware on the ESC (USB link is based on Silabs F321) Here's what I've got electronically: I've got a .bin file in my iMac that is the latest update for the ESC and the Orca update software, that acts as the link between the devices Here's what I've already done: I already have a firm grasp on loading new firmware on to the ESC Here's what I want to do: I'd like to be able to toy around with the data in the .bin file, but I honestly have no idea of how to interpret the data contained therein. I've played with it in a few hex editing programs and got a few words to appear in something approaching English, but nothing concrete. I guess the basic problem is understanding what "language" this was written in. (I'm not even sure if it's 8 or 32 bit) I think after that's figured out, I can work backwards from there. Ultimately, I'd like to understand how all of this works and how the MCU interprets the information and signals it's being fed. Any thoughts you can offer on the subject would be appreciated. Here's a kink to the firmware update, should you choose to look at it. Thanks! http://www.orcarc.com/download/ORCAQ%20ver2.1%20111125A.BIN

Custom PIC

Savage innovations does not offer a small OOPic chip. OOPic is my favorite MCU and I want a small one. Soooo, I decided I want to make one. In theory, The process is simple. The OOPic 2 is a PIC16F77 with custom firmware. I ordered a similar chip (PIC16F876A) to put the firmware on so I basically have a smaller OOPic. Savage innovations does not offer the OOPic firmware as a download so I have to extract it from my OOPic2. Here's my questions. Will a JDM2 programmer be able to extract the firmware? Will WinPic800 work to do this? Will this erase my OOPic's firmware entirely? Is it even possible? I would like some input and if you guys say it will be okay, I am going to do it. (I'll post and ible if it works.

In this project. I want to use an arduino mega, 2 lcds, and 6 acs712 current sensing modules and 2 Lm2596 dc step up/down module The set up I have in mind is like so; arduino is powered by ATX stand by power (IF possible) there is a push button which turns on the programing to start the monitoring and also grounds the ATX and GReen wire to supply power to all the rails.
