[quote=“forbesbrb”]hi there i checked and yes i have chosen the correct board but i am not sure where in arduino can you set the Baud Rate??
in the arduino software that i have to upload it has these lines in the configuration H
// This determines the communication speed of the printer
#define BAUDRATE 250000
//#define BAUDRATE 115200
is this setting the BAUDRATE to 115200???[/quote]
The “//” tells the compiler to ignore the rest of the line, so this code sets the baud rate to 250000. The baud rate on your PC should match.
Jumper the JPROG pins BEFORE you begin the download. Use an actual jumper if you have one - a screwdriver can slip off. It is also a good idea to push the RESET button on the Arduino board at the same time that you begin the download from the Arduino IDE.
The timing can be tricky, but you’ll get the hang of it.
