The image shows that it uses a standard ch340 usb/serial converter.

All the pc see is this chip.

it should turn up as s com/serial port.

you do need drivers... [sparks.gogo.co.nz]

If it is showing a com port.... there are other things to check....

You haven't said what your OS is, so cant give specific help.

Nothing...
I go to Device manager and no Port appears..
go to arduino and nothing to..
Use 3 different usb blue cables and nothing...

When connect a blue light and the red turns on.
Then the blue goes off only stays the red..
And both green light stays always on..

Those 2 green light have a (+) signal..
Maybe a short circuit??

check the ch340 has power? can you use a multi meter? Done any electronics?



pin 8 is gnd and pin 16 is vcc
pin 1 is marked with a dot on your image (U3)

check that pin 16 has voltage.
If it does have power the chip is likely dead.

Dead chip??

That would be my guess


I would try a different pc or two, just to make sure its not your OS messing with you.
