85 Rubles was the asking price in 1996, July. Calculators for the people!...

In 1996: $1 = 3600 Russian roubles. A price on the back cover of calculator did not reflect its cost after 1992. Also, look at the image of normal VFD in МК- 61 (after 5000 500 hrs at least). There were calculators for engineers, but also there were calculators with bad quality for ordinary people. Business decides instead of us.

Thanks for this thread, Jebem. It is very interesting, I have been thinking about grabbing one of these. I'm sorry yours didn't arrive in perfect condition as advertised. That is very disappointing.

Hi Jose,
Thank You very much for the manual translation.
Good Job!!!

I translated the MK52 manual, check Scribd.
It's kind of rough, but I know nothing about Russian,
May be useful for you.
I have several MKs on my collection, for some
Reason I like them, though they are a pain to work with,
Kind of magic device if you think on the circumstances that
The calculator was designed.
A tip: the older ones, from the '80s, are much better
crafted, also more reliable.

Regards

Does anyone have documentation on the brp3 and brp4 modules? I have both but no manuals and therefor no rom addresses to access.

Hi Geoff,
Check here:

http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-2345-page-2.html

you will find a .doc file, which is great because you can translate in Google,
if you don't speak Russian

Hello Walter,

Thanks for the pointer, started doing some translations at least for the titles and addresses. Looks like an interesting bunch of routines.

Mine is just finished, with the TZ-tape. I only wait for the grey tape to make it perfect on the keys.
Between the keys is a printed self adhesive plasic paper.
The Manual is a little bit thin and I'm looking for some more hints.

The battery compartment had plenty of rust but after some cleaning, the calc works fine.

Hi Hans-Peter,
Good Job!
Check here:

https://www.scribd.com/book/334050679

Mk52, Mk56 and Mk61 have similar manuals.
I found out that even the examples are the same.
The only difference is the explanation of the continuous
memory use (EEProm), on the Mk52 manual.
I'm still working on the translation, but at least
You can figure out some things.

Walter.

Hi, does anybody have a PDF copy of this? Apparently you have to pay to use scribd... not sure why anybody would post there.
