In the Arduino software verify the following under the tools tab at the top:
1. Board: (should select) Arduino/or Genuino Mega or 2560
2. Processor: (should select) ATMega2560 (Mega 2560)
3. Port: Make sure you have a cable connected to the rear printer port and to your computer, then select Tools, then Port and select the COM port that is detected, it should then have a check mark next to it.
If the port is grayed out, then you don’t have a connection to the computer and board. This could be due to a cable issue or locked port. Windows is notorious for not letting go of the ports. The simplest way to fix this is to save your work, shutdown the computer and restart.
