Hey there. Last night, i was trying to program of the buttons & leds of my panel project. (btw, i've used all of the 52 pins)

Until barely finishing it, my board started not to respond for some reason. Dis- & Reconnecting few times seemed like not working. However, MobiFlight asked me twice to upload firmware, and i did. After that, it became stable, but after reconnecting, MobiFlight did not recognise the device.

If i unplug the board, MobiFlight opens, if i plug it, MobiFlight refuses to open. Drivers seem ok, tried un- and reinstalling it did not help either.

I tried uploading some example projects via Arduino software itself but the warning message said it can not communicate with the board -no response or something-

I'm quite unfamiliar with the Arduino and programming anyway,. Is there a way to hard-reset the board to reinstall the firmware again ?

Also, do you have any plans to remove or increase the Switch Button limit -which is 40 right now-, as my current project has a total of 41 Switch inputs -which is such a shame for me to see this after barely finishing the project :) -

Hm, that is strange. Maybe you ran out of memory because of so many devices and the names you assigned to them - it should actually not happen.

Try to upload an example sketch with the Arduino IDE.
Does that help?
Have a great day!

Hi,

Yes, i've somehow solved the problem by uploading some example projects of Arduino and the MobiFlight firmware afterwards.

However, i'm getting "Your Config is too long, make some labels shorter" error while trying to rename a new button or led that i'Ve created.

My current project is designed to use every available pins of Mega 2560 (in this case, 52). Right now, i can only upload 49 inputs to the card.

Shorten the names to make it work with that many pins configured.
Have a great day!
