This is not a product offer, but a link to AliExpress to easily find the cheapest option for a TL866CS MiniPro universal programmer, which is currently available for ̶a̶b̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶£̶1̶9̶ ̶/̶ ̶€̶2̶3̶ ̶(̶N̶o̶v̶e̶m̶b̶e̶r̶ ̶2̶0̶1̶9̶)̶

Seems the older version isn’t available anymore, and only the ‘TL866II’ is now available, for about £35.

Make sure you check for the correct and best price!

The TL866CS version (there are also other versions, but the TL866CS is the most affordable one) of the MiniPro supports numerous IC types, including EEPROM types like:

  • AM29F040B
  • 27(C)256 EPROM*
  • 27(C)512 EPROM*
  • 29F040 EEPROM
  • AT28C256 (not compatible with Harlequin 128)

* Make sure this type of EPROM is erased (with UV eraser) before programming.
Usually these are when bought.

The TL866CS works on Windows 10 and older Windows versions.

Note! Our experience with the TL866CS learned us that it is only detected by the included software, when connected to a USB2.0 port.
On a USB3.0 or higher port it seems to not work correctly.

  1. Hello. Do you have a current recommendation for this EEPROM programmer?

    The link doesn’t above doesn’t seem to show the product currently, and interested in getting one to program the Harlequin ROM.

    • It seems the cheaper versions of the TL866 (‘MiniPro’) are not available anymore, which is a real shame, since that is such a powerful device.
      I have been looking on eBay or AliExpress, and find some potential successors, but since I haven’t tested those, it’s hard to tell if they do at least the same as the original TL866.
      Maybe there is a completely different universal programmer available now, but I haven’t checked yet.
      It’s good to discuss this with others on a forum, or on Facebook.
