For example, my computer’s port is COM85, maybe your port is not same with me. Maybe COM3 or other.

Make sure you select the right COM port, and the baud rate is 115200.

Note, the port cannot be seleted with AUTO or other. If you use USB to connect, baud rate should select 115200 , not other.

If your PC cannot recognize the port. First check your USB line, make sure it can work well. Second if the issue also happened, you should install the PC’ driver for the APM.
