I have read you need to slow down usb speed. Bin binary format file convertion utility. It supports most of PIC chips. I have had a couple of reports that the “fix” doesn’t work, but I will leave the file here just in case it is useful to anyone.
This driver does not work on older version GQ-4X. From what i can tell it is on old versions of the top It needs USB driver top8553. I had not realised it, but under the Config Tab, there is a setting called ” Delay “, I take this to be the delay between the programmer writing to consecutive addresses, it was originally set as us.
Whilst it does work, I’m not sure that using a programmer with a potentially low programming voltage can be good for the long term reliability of the EPROM, if I were blowing EPROMs for critical applications, I would upgrade to a better quality programmer, but for hobbyist use, I plan on sticking with the TOP programmer at the moment. Depending on which ebay shop you use, you may find some discrepancies in the advertised specifications!
I tried using one of these USB “Y” top8853 that are intended to provide additional power for external hard drives – which did not appear to help. Thanks to GB who provided this signed driver. The software works on Windows XP,Vista,7,8,8. Current protection function, effectively protects the programmer and devices.
I’m not sure how they can get away with, or example, saying that the programmer ” Support 5V device only “, then stating that it supports devices that require much higher sub to program but not to read them.

If you need to do this, you might have a setting in your computers BIOS to change the usb to 1. Voltage diagnostic bug fixes. The number of chips supported is not updated since I never got around to trying this, but I have been advised that the hondaville site links are broken, tpp853 can download the files from the links in the table below.
Usg – from a typical eBay advert. The new version GQ-4×4 hardware has two beep sounds from programmer when it is power on. OR you may need to disable the signature enforcement.
Top Win 7 Fix. I originally thought that it was likely to be a power problem, that the TOP top583 not generate the required voltage with enough current from the USB port. I have not tried this myself tlp853, but certainly will the next time I use the programmer, it may be that the “fix” is for Windows 7 x32 and may not work under x There is no external power input, though there is a header on the PCB that you could connect to if required.
