Problem :

I want to make the wifi webserver with the ESP8266 using Arduino.

I have already connected my yp-01 the USB to serial with my ESP8266.

As given below:

·     USB --> ESP

·     TX --> RX

·      RX --> TX

I am trying to utilize the 3.3V supply of my arduino mega.

·     ARDUINO --> ESP

·     3.3V --> VCC

·     GND --> GND.

I am using the ARduino IDE 1.6.9

But whenever I am trying to upload my code it is giving me the  following error:

warning: espcomm_sync failed error: espcomm_open failed error: espcomm_upload_mem failed

Is there anybody who had the same problem and knows the solution?

Solution :

To resolve your errors please follow below instructions very carefully:

ESP01 Flash config: Flash real size must be as follows: 1048576 1MB 512SPIFFS Flash ide speed: 40000000 - 4MHz Flash ide mode: DOUT

ESP07 Flash config: Flash real size must be as follows: 1048576 1MB 512SPIFFS Flash ide speed: 40000000 - 4MHz Flash ide mode: QIO

While programming the ESP8266 please connect the VCC, ground, TX and RX properly as shown below:

VCC --> 3.3V

GND --> GND

TX -->RX

RX --> TX

To program the ESP, first connect the RESET and GPIO0 both to the ground. After that you need to keep them for around 5 seconds and remove the RESET only do not remove GPIO0.

Solution:

Reason Behind This Error:

This implies that the ESP didn’t respond (or didn’t respond in the method that the Arduino IDE expected) at the time you attempted to upload the code. The first thing to attempt is hitting the upload button again. This will mostly solve the problem of everything else is okay. In case that doesn’t perform then attempt unplugging your ESP and re-connecting and attempting again. In case that doesn’t perform then check your Arduino IDE settings. Do you have the right type of device chosen, and the right memory size chosen for your type of device. In case you’re employing an ESP-01, or a device like a Sonoff, then GPIO0 requires to be linked to Ground at the time powering-up the board to place it into flash mode. Failing to do this will result in the type of messages that you’re obtaining. In case you’re employing an ESP-01, or a device like a Sonoff, then GPIO0 requires to be linked to Ground at the time powering-up the board to place it into flash mode. Failing to do this will result in the type of messages that you’re obtaining.

STEP 1:

Begin with reading exact message shown in debug window of Arduino IDE. In many instances it gives direct information where the problem is. For example message above indicates that Arduino IDE is unable to open a serial port COM3. Inspect in case you have chosen port where your module is linked to.

STEP 2:

In case a module is linked  to the serial port however not responding as a valid ESP8266 device, the message will read slightly diverse (view below). In case you have other modules linked to your PC, ensure that that you are uploading code to ESP8266 and not to for example  Arduino UNO.

STEP 3:

To have your PC talking to ESP, choose exact ESP type in upload menu. In case chosen is mistaken then the upload may fail. Basing on chosen board type, Arduino IDE will exert earmarkd “reset method” to enter the board into boot loading mode. Reset procedures are board specific. Few boards do not have the h/w in place to assistance reset by Arduino IDE. In case this is the reason, you require to enter such board into boot loading mode manually.

STEP 4:

Upload may be also failing due to too high speed. In case you have long or poor quality USB cable, attempt reducing chosen under Upload Speed.

Problem: Currently I have the Arduino Duemilanove with the ATmega328. Also I am working on Ubuntu 12.04 (to be Precise Pangolin) and my current Arduino IDE's version is 1.0. Recently I have tried to upload some of my sample sketches onto it just like the ... it in my other direction. Now I not facing any problems uploading but still nothing happens afterwards. My onboard LED also is not blinking.
