Programming the Teensy

Post by ror100 » Sun Jun 19, 2016 11:33 am

Hey all,

I'm way behind, so apologies if I ask a repeated question.

I've wired up my control board to my Teensy LC today, but I'm not sure the programming is working. I have a USB cable from PC to Teensy, and the orange light on the Teensy is flashing. Running the Arduino update says that the upload is done, but I then get a message in orange saying 'Teensy did not respond to a USB-based request to automanically reboot. Please press the PROGRAM MODE BUTTON on your Teensy to upload your sketch'

Anything to worry about? I have no way of checking my soldering just yet....

There is a little button on the Teensy LC which you have to press when the message tells you to do ;)
After that the programm should be uploaded to the Teensy and you can test it with any text editor.

Sorry, forgot to say I am pressing the button.

I get nothing in a text editor, and windows makes me think that pressing the button is disconnecting the USB connection? I have nothing showing up to say that a USB device is connected.

Checking the continuity of my soldering gives me positive results for all buttons, so I think the issue lies in the programming aspect - its simply not doing what it should?

I had a few problems with connection also , make sure you follow the instructions on here : https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_download.html
version numbers of supported Arduino are important! Make sure you have the correct Arduino version installed.

Followed to the letter and still no good. Using Arduino 1.6.8 and Teensyduino1.29

I don't get this at all...

Nothing, i'm wondering if its some curio buried in USB and Windows 10. Giving up for tonight, I didnt think the programming would be the difficult part of this build :(

Did you choose Teensy LC in Arduino IDE?
Did you choose Keyboard + Gamepad?
Which programmer did you use?
What port?

You just have to push the button a second or so, then wait.
If it does not work, do it again. Then unplug, replug and only upload, no verify.

I can say yes to the first 2 questions there.

Which programmer? I have no idea - sorry, I am using the file Wermy linked in guide 2.
Port is greyed out for me as 'emulated serial'
