Bricked Makey Makey?

by benhhumphrey on Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:18 pm

Hello,

I recently purchased a Makey Makey and a Flora kit from Adafruit. I was attempting to upload a new sketch to the Makey Makey but realized too late that I still had the Arduino program set to the Flora. The sketch finished uploading and now my Makey Makey appears to be bricked. When connected to a PC, it appears as an Unknown Device and I can't change the drivers. On the Makey Makey, the power LED, the red output keyboard and mouse LEDS, and both green LEDS above the output headers are lit, all on the backside.

When connected to a Mac, I get the following message in the system.log "The IOUSBFamily was not able to enumerate a device".

It doesn't appear that Joylabz provides any technical support, so I'm hoping someone here can help me figure out a way to reset this device.

Thanks for any help.

Relying to my own question.

I figured it out. I jumpered RST and GND on the output header, plugged it in and then tried a number of different things. I think the successful thing was to "upload using Programmer" under the File menu.

My Makey Makey is not bricked! W00t!
