Ah, you've come from Perl I see.

You're opening the database AND the serial port every time you go
through the loop. Is that intentional?

Ouch. Any exception, you just print out a generic message and move on?
You're blinding yourself. Let the exception get properly displayed. It
might help you.

This looks like possibly the device is already in use. Try opening the
device _just once_, or if you have to reopen it every time through the
loop, make sure you close it.
