I have an Arduino Mini Pro 3.3 V powered from a coin cell(3.6 V, CR2450) and connected to Bluetooth Mate Gold. I have checked the connections and they are fine. I can also connect to the bluetooth from while trying to upload the file and also from Android bluetooth terminal.I am not sure if it could be bootloader issue as I have checked 2 Arduino Mini Pros that give the same problem running the sample sketch on the bluetooth hookup guide.

  • Arduino: 1.6.5 (Mac OS X)
  • Board: "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini, ATmega328 (3.3V, 8 MHz)"

The error is:

Sketch uses 2,412 bytes (7%) of program storage space. Maximum is 30,720 bytes.
Global variables use 210 bytes (10%) of dynamic memory, leaving 1,838 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2,048 bytes.
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

I burned the bootloader again but no success.

I get the same with UNO. However with UNO, when I press the reboot button before the program uploads is works.

Could someone point me out to the solution to this? Thanks

    How did you connect the arduino reset pin to the BT-module? – Gerben Jul 16 '15 at 13:02
  • @Gerben I used this hookup guide. For Pro-Mini the pins just match. Isn't it? – devchandan Jul 21 '15 at 10:41
  • That guide doesn't connect the reset. So you have to manually reset the arduino just before programming. – Gerben Jul 21 '15 at 14:58
