I have two original (designed and assembled in Italy) Arduino Nano Every Boards from a German Web Shop. They came sealed in original packaging. When I try to connect them to my PC, they don't power up.
What I've tried so far:
- 6 different USB cables
- 1 Desktop PC with Arch Linux as well as Windows 10, all USB Ports available (front headers, back side motherboard)
- 1 Laptop PC with Arch Linux
- 1 Google Pixel 4 XL using a USB-B to -C adapter
No combination of the USB cables with any of the aforementioned USB Ports / Machines / Operating Systems allow the Arduino Nano Every Boards to boot up (no LEDs flashing).
I tried powering the boards using a 9V battery block on the V_in and GND pins, which works. I also tried powering the boards using a 9V battery block and then connecting the USB, but the aforementioned machines / operating systems do not recognize a new device connected via USB, despite the boards being powered (LEDs flashing).
I also triple-checked the physical connection of the USB cables on both ends to be sure they are inserted properly. I can use the aforementioned USB cables, USB ports, machines, and operating systems to charge other devices or transfer data with other devices (like, e.g., smartphones, e-book readers, USB flash memory sticks, external hard drives, ...).
What should I try next to get the Arduino Nano Every working?
Please let me know which extra information I should provide. Thanks!
Note: As far as I can see, using
lsusb on Linux should always list connected USB devices, regardless of the groups my user's in. Nevertheless, I also loaded the
cdc_acm module and added
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb-serial", TAG+="uaccess" to a udev rule located at
/etc/udev/rules.d/01-ttyusb.rules, and reloaded the udev rules, to no avail.
