Visually check the placement of adapter in programmer ZIF socket.
Push the cover of adapter ZIF socket (the topmost movable part) to open the socket. Insert the device into adapter ZIF socket. Correct position of programmed device in adapter ZIF socket is indicated by picture near (usually on left above) the adapter ZIF socket. On that picture, reference corner of device (e.g. position of pin 1) is indicated by dot, by number 1, by bevelled corner or by any combination of mentioned. Then release adapter ZIF socket.
Do not press on device while inserting it and/or releasing the cover.
Visually check the placement of programmed device in adapter ZIF socket. If everything looks OK, the device is ready for programming.
