Serial port stops outputting

Post by bhall » Sat Mar 02, 2013 10:43 pm

Hi,

I have various debug outputs printed to the serial port but I've noticed after a while that they stop - I can see the board is still running as I can see it sending data via Wireshark and the USB Tx LED flashes.

I've noticed this using the Arduino IDE's built-in Serial Monitor and also using Cornflake (Mac serial terminal program).

I've got a DHT22 temp. sensor connected to pin 2, and LEDs connected to pins 3/5/6/7/8/9/11/12

Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks.

Brett.
