RE: Elektronika MK-61 - today I ordered one NIB
Thank you Jebem,

I will have a look at this tonight and will probably come back to you with some questions!

Hi Francois,
Sorry to know about that issue on your MK-52 machine.

Probably the next step is to check the internal DC-DC converter power supply operation.
If the calculator VFD doesn't light up, probably the 27V line is faulty?

I think it is a good idea to use a oscilloscope to check the DC-DC oscillator section (you can borrow one from a friend or from a school, if you do not have one with you).
The DC-DC oscillator converter is a simple circuit with a few silicon transistors; one of them can be faulty; also check the electrolytic capacitors, one of them can be faulty as well.



EDIT:
Additional information on the DC-DC converter internal power supply


Both calculator models (Mk-52 and MK-61) takes the battery supply to generate a number of Negative output supply voltages for the electronics.
The battery Positive terminal is used as Ground as well.

MK-52 DC-DC power supply:

Common:
+BATT/GND (pin9) -> Gnd/+5V to IC's like EEPROM KP1601PP1 Ucc2 pin 24.

Input:
-V1 -BATT (pin7)

Output:
-V2 -15V (pin6) -> IC logic circuits
-V3 -27V (pin5) -> to the VFD display
-V4 -17V (pin8) -> to the -12V regulator for Ucc1 pin 12 and Gnd pin 4 of EEPROM KP1601PP1
-V5 -40V (pin4) -> to the -33V regulator for programming voltage Upr pin 15 of EEPROM KP1601PP1

Note on the EEPROM:
KP1601PP1 == ER2401 (1024x4 bit)


MK-61 DC-DC power supply:

Common:
+BATT/GND (pin9) -> Gnd/+5V to IC's

Input:
-V1 -BATT (pin3)

Output:
-V2 -15V (pin4) -> IC logic circuits
-V3 -27V (pin7) -> To the VFD display


The following attachment diagram shows the MK-52 four output voltage DC-DC converter power supply.
