[Solved] Can't upload sketches to watch, reset button just makes it blink and shut down


#1

Hi, I received my watchX today and assembled it. I was excited to upload a watchface and after setting up the libraries I tried my first upload. That failed with this error:

avrdude: Expected signature for ATmega32U4 is 1E 95 87
         Double check chip, or use -F to override this check.

I then tried the reset button trick mentioned in the forum, I think something was uploaded, at least I got some other errors:

***failed;
***failed;  
***failed;  
***failed;  
***failed;  
***failed;  
avrdude: Error: butterfly programmer uses avr_write_page() but does not
provide a cmd() method.
*** page 123 (addresses 0x6bfc - 0x6c7b) failed to write

and now the watch does not show anything on the screen anymore. When I connect it via usb, it’s not recognized, so I can’t choose a port.

What can I do to debug this?

here is the debug output of the upload:

avrdude done.  Thank you.

Dieser Bericht wäre detaillierter, wenn die Option
"Ausführliche Ausgabe während der Kompilierung"
in Datei -> Voreinstellungen aktiviert wäre.

I had to cut out a bunch of the following, because the log would’ve been 28000 lines long otherwise…

Okay this seems to be resolved. I tried another laptop and am running manjaro on both. It didn’t work there either. So I switched to a computer with a different OS and the sketches upload without a problem. Bummer about the manjaro installs though… I need to find a solution for that, but it seems lots of arduino devs are experiencing the same problem with arduino-ide, so I’ll try to find out what’s going on, on their forums.

now to have some fun with the watchX!!! yay :smiley:

Dear xnopasaranx ,

I am glad that you have solved the problem successfully :relaxed:

Please keep in touch if you encounter any other problems.
