    Minipro - Overcurrent protection message while in circuit?

    Hi,

    I've recently got a Minipro 866CS programmer + SOIC8 clip.

    I wanted to use this to help decode a GID but there is a problem;

    Everytime i attach the clip and attempt a read i get an overcurrent protection message.

    I am attempting to read the chip in circuit...is the Mini pro not able to do this?

    If its not is there any other affordable programmer than can read without unsolding the chip?

      This is possible because You're supplying rest of the components via your programmer powered from USB port. You can try to cut VDD track from memory.

      I can recommned AllProg from radiocode-technology.

      I recommend not doing a in circuit read/write. To many things can go wrong even if the programmer supports.
      Just remove the EEPROM before read/write it`s a 5 min job for a hot air station.

      I have very good experience with AllProg and Enigma in this matter. Sometimes you have to disconnect crystal oscillator from microcontroller to avoid interaction (powered up can try to make some actions on eeprom via SPI, I2C and so on).

      OK, but what if the PCB is faulty?
      Not worth the risk, especial on encrypted eeproms where one wrong byte will mess up everything
