I have a problem with my Arduino. I can't upload any sketches to it (it gives me the error avrdude: verification error; content mismatch), but the LEDs are still blinking. Do you think that the whole Arduino is dead or is it just the chip ?

EDIT : I tried an other USB cable but it changed nothing.

EDIT : Here is the output of verbose mode while uploading :

It's possible you have a non-fatal problem

  • check power
  • check connections
  • reflash the Arduino bootloader

If your Arduino has a socketed microcontroller you can try swapping it out with one that has the bootloader preloaded.

  • check the fuses as well – zmo Mar 5 '14 at 13:36

    @zmo: checking the fuses is somewhat pointless. They're not actual fuses which can break, but PTC resistors which self-repair. – Joris Groosman May 9 '15 at 12:35
  • The fuses referred to control processor behaviour. They are not PTC resistors and don't self-repair. See the datasheet for the processor under the "fuses" section. – Nick Gammon Jun 17 '17 at 3:24

I've faced this problem several times! If you are using arduino UNO, make sure to remove any serial connected device on the (Tx,RX) pins. Upload your sketch, then connect them back again. It's because the arduino UNO has on serial pins which is used for uploading the code, there will be a conflict if there was a device that is connected to the serial the same time you upload the code.

I had faced similar problems and the solution that worked for me was to power the burning circuit with the Arduino onboard 5 volt. 3.3 Volt does work but at times it gives these errors especially while burning the bootloader.

This happened to me with a bare-bones Arduino. I disconnected everything and it still happens. I don't know what the cause is but you definitely will need to reflash the bootloader or replace the chip.

It isn't a connection or power issue, and it isn't related to having devices connected to pins 0/1 (although that can also cause problems, it will give a different error).
