Thanks, did that already though. Problem is that instead of the display working, the hot bed heater and it's LED start turning on and off in a 0.1 second cycle.

Did the hotbed and LED work well when printed with SD card?

Got it fixed. Compiled my Marlin1.1 code with Arduino 1.6.5 and then uploaded with AVRDUDE from 1.0.1. Everything works fine now. Just wish I could upload direct from 1.6.5 some problem with bootloader mismatches I think. Not going to worry though. Going to upgrade to a Ramps 1.4 anyway. Thanks for the help.

Hi together,

i am a guy from Germany and first i must say sorry for my bead englisch.

I bought a Acrylic Geeetech I3 Prusa Pro B with GT2560 Board and have now also the issue with the black showing blocks in the LCD.
At first the display, after assembling the printer, works fine, i could move the axes and so on.
After connection with PC over USB (drivers are installed) and likes to work with the Repetier Host V1.5.6 i got this issue with the blocks after i powered the printer off and on without connected USB Cable.

Can i have the firmware to reburning ?
What is happen after reburning with the configurations values ?
Will this values deleted ?
Have you this values also in a file for uploading to the printer ?

What is Ramps 1.4 ?

Sorry for this many questions.

many thanks for your help.

now i have try it so much to burn the firmware.
By burning with Arduino 1.0.1 i get allways the follow error message:
"avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout"

i have try it wit and without power on from the printer.

I have trie it with 2 PC's and by bouth the same.

I work with Windows 7, one have 32-bit and the other 61-bit Windows 7.

Can it be, that the bootloader from the GT2560 is broken ?
or the USB interface ?

Have you a idea what can be happen, so i can slove this issue ?

How about unplugging all other parts in the board and just with the USB?
I find an article here and maybe it can help you.

Many thanks for your help, but the USB was not defect.
The issue was the baudrate
1. from Arduino environment.
I have changed the baudrate by the serial monitor to 9.600 Baud.
After that i could upload your sendet Firmware and it runs perfectly.

But i could not work with Cura or Reptierhost. i got allways a error message about the serial interface.

2. the baudrate from the Firmware.
i changed in the configuration sketch the baudrate from 250.000 to 115.000 and load this firmware up to the printer.

Now, it works perfect.
