(if the chip cannot be erased, pls try it)

 

Prior to operation, the air gun was adjusted to 100 ° C and the chip was heated for 20 to 30 seconds (the chip was soldered to the board). After stopping the heating, immediately install it and try to operate. After waiting for the chip to completely cool, if the chip has not yet entered the second stage for erasing, the air gun can be repeatedly heated for another 20 to 30 seconds and then stopped. The chip may be erased during the cooling process.
