Did you try uploading a sketch that way?

Re: Reflash Bootloader on GT2560

It should have been a backup, I found it on the board schematic, but without any info about the backup. This fuse protects the board against the USB power input without having this fuse or a bridge between both solder joints, the USB connection does not work. Could you try to solder a resistor and ...

Re: Reflash Bootloader on GT2560

Maybe there was a fuse at some point which was not needed later so they removed it, i don't know.

Re: Reflash Bootloader on GT2560

Apparently my board has a broken ftdi chip. I did not change the oscillator and thought I should try something else. So I tried uploading the Marlin firmware to the board through the SPI interface (MOSI,MISO,SCK) using my Arduino Mega as a programmer (uploading the ArduinoISP example and then settin...

Did you try solder another crystal(16MHz) on the board?
I think you can have a try though i guess it's more likely the FTDI chip has a problem...
Ok I will try this then since I have no other choice. I will report my results here.

Re: Reflash Bootloader on GT2560

You can try replacing the crystal with another one if your LCD is two rows of rectangles. And if your LCD is working fine now,then it maybe the FTDI chip was broken,you can attach the picture of the FTDI on your board(as clear as possible,i mean the numbers on it). In addition,there is another way ...

Re: Reflash Bootloader on GT2560

Hi,@left_gangster Did you notice the following post? http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17102 I think you can change another crystal oscillator to take a look. Yes I have seen this thread, but as I said, the board was working before, it was showing up as COM5 but it would not connec...

Re: Reflash Bootloader on GT2560

I tried all your suggestions, using Arduino 1.0.1 and 1.0.5 burning bootloader through 1.0.1, 1.0.5 and the current latest 1.6.8 my GT2560 was working before but it would not connect to any of the programs (Arduino and Repetier) and showed up on the Device Manager as COM5. Now that I burned the boot...
