It is complaining about a CONFIG (register?), not about the normal program space. I quickly scanned the datasheet but didn't find anything. Did you try to use the chip?

I have no idea, but testing the chip should bring us closer to the truth.

Hi friends, i have good news.
I soldered the chips on motherboard after flashing both and the notebook started ok without problems.
It seems that the programmer record ok all the information in the chip but in the verification process something happen ( i still dont know what is).
Besides that it seems a bug in the software because the notebook till now is working perfect without problems.

Need help!
I made the adapter according to the drawings from this topic.
It is well defined as V3, but refuses to read the correct ID of the chip (tried M29W800DB-tsop48, AM29F800BB-sop44).
I double-checked everything, but unfortunately I did not find an error in the installation.
Oscilloscope or logic analyzer is not available to me (

There is a suspicion that the addresses or data buses are confused.

Tell me capacitance C3 C4 capacitors please.

Some traces look suspicious, but it might just be the photo itself.

Does anybody know what exactly is the purpose of the TSOP adapter? Is there any reason a simple TSOP 40 to DIP40 adapter wouldn't work?

I have read some reply somewhere saying a simple TSOP to DIP adapter should work with the TL866 without any problem, but I haven't been able to find any proof.

Obviously needed for parts with more than 40 pins - those in above photos have 48 & 44 respectively.

Thanks, I thought it might have to do with the number of pins. But the converters say 32-48pins, so I wasn't sure. I have also read about 8 and 16 bit adapters.

Update: a simple TSOP to DIP adapter didn't work for a A29L008ATV.

BTW, big thanks to Radioman, I've upgraded my TL866CS to a TL866A in about a minute!

Got my own and I'm glad that i got one. Conversion from CS to A without any problems. And it has one nice feature for me - in ZIF socket atmels seem to be programmed with HVPP algorithm. My problems with fusebits are over!
Cost: about 220 polish zloty = 20e
