no serial number friend just this

@djomano: Yes, we have all understood by now that your TL866 does not have a valid serial number.
That is why james38 wrote the following in his prior post:

Please try again the flash process to change the serial number an then pay attention if device code and serial number is shown.
If NOT  or you see other values than alphanumeric in this case GENERATE NEW ONE with the Random button.

Here is what you need to do:
In the dialog shown in your latest post,
 - select the "Firmware" tab,
 - click the "Edit" button,
 - in the new dialog which opens, click the "Random" buttons.

Three separate people have been very patient with you in this thread.
Please read the advice carefully and follow it.

Yes, I read and understood that.

Because your TL866 has no valid serial number, you need to generate a new serial number. To do that, you use tl866.exe. Please follow the steps explained in my previous post. ("Random" button.)

You said by your self there are no serial number.
Then you must genaerate a new one.

In all the mails you dont answer my questions.
Pease read all of them not the first sentence.
Answer not with only one sentence.
We want to help you but if you dont cooperate there is no chance that we can help you.

I do not want to have to write countless mails here.
Our mebmber ebastler have said it in in short words.

Ahhh!  :-+

Glad you got it to work, and thank you for the summary of steps. I think it can be simplified slightly: Flashing the firmware dumper is not needed, you can go directly to flashing the TL866A software. But that doesn't matter; you have a working programmer again!

ATMega32U and TL866 problem
« Reply #1486 on: Today at 07:47:08 am »
I am having trouble with a ATMega32U2.  I am using Windows 7.  The TL866 is running version 6.85 and the firmware is 3.2.86 as it should be.  I am not sure where my problem lies, whether it is a flaw in MiniPro of somewhere else.  When I select the ATMega32 device and hit "Info" it shows that the chip goes in the 40 pin zif socket...all 40 pins filled!  This is a 32 pin device!  When I select read (of a new blank ATMEga32U2 chip that is a QFN32 package in an adapter socket) I get an ID error and it can't read it.  If I tell it to program that chip with a bootloader Hex file it again shows me that the chip goes in all 40 pins of the 40 pin zif socket and if I tell it to program it again returns a "ID Error!  Check the Chip Correctly? Whether contacted good pin?"  and the box shows the same thing:
"Check ID Error!
Checked ID is: 0x FB FF FB
Wihs to continue programming, please cancel [check Device ID] option."

When I uncheck Check Device ID and tell it to program the chip I get a
"OverCurrent Protection Actions! External short circuit. IC reverse or damaged." error.

What am I running into?
A MiniPro problem?
A TL866 problem?
An Adapter problem?

Thank you.

A user problem maybe?  :P
(Or an "Atmel unfortunate part numbering" problem?)

The ATMega32 is not the same as the ATMega32U2. The former is indeed a 40 pin part. At first glance, it looks like the TL866 cannot program the latter; can't find the part number in the menu.

As far as I can see is, that the software can not handle an ATMEGA32 in QFN32 Package.
There is no additional @TQFP32 description in the device area so it will not be supported by the software.
Only the 40pin version is supportet (AMEGA 32 L/A).
I don't believe that it will be still implemented.

The TL866 II Plus also don't yet support this package form in software version 8.11.
Maybe later.

Wow.  And I thought a ATMega32 definition would include all variants of the chip!  So what can I use to program this ATMega32U...assuming I did not just make a very dead bug out of my chip?  The other programmer I have access to has a 28 pin dip but not 32 or 40 pin.  I did notice that although I have been programming ATMega328P's in 28 pin dip packages but the smt version is a QFN32 or a QLP32 smt chip and not 28 pin but 32 pin!

Thank you.

If your TL866 is the A version maybe there is a possibility to program it via ICSP.
The radio button is not greyed when you choose ATMEGA32 so it should be running.
