I am trying to read an AVR atmega8515 chip from one application and i have the following problem :
When i give the order to READ the chip the software send me back ERROR messages << Power ON - FAIL >> and << Cannot communicate with the target chip >> (check the attached picture - original Atmega)
I use the same programmer with one other same chip and the results was normal . (check the attached picture - empty Atmega)
My question is the following :
i take that error messages from the original chip because it is Locked .... or the Chip is damaged and i should replaced it .
in advance .
