Question about LG Electronics LRM-519 Digital Media Recorder

Lrm 519 replace capacitors

Hey,

you said you changed out the capacitors c-18, c-36 correct.

I assume then you pulled the whole board out to do this?
I have never done this before.
My C-36(green in color) has a slight bulge on it so assume that one is the culprit.

Please advise on steps used to replace if you do not mind.
This thing is not worth sending out to get fixed (IMO).

I am sure I can do it if I have the steps given.

Thanks,

RJ

    I went to record something today and discovered my LRM-519 wouldn't power on.  I found this thread and I must say thank you!


    I watched the youtube video (I had already taken mine apart), but it was reassuring to see it done.


    I placed an order for the 2200uf caps today.  It looks like a simple enough repair.  I also ordered a desolder pump as I don't know where my old one has gone.


    Thanks,
    -Dave

    Unfortunately replacing the capacitors didn't fix mine, it still appears that the power supply is dead (no DC voltage is showing with it plugged into AC power).  Any other components that are known to go bad?

Pull those capacitors out and replace them. I did this and everything is working perfect now.

I have two lg lrm-519 dvr's both power supply's went out about 4 months apart where can i get this fixed?


I have repaired two different LRM-519 that both had the same problem. The repair was a simple replacement of two capacitors on of the power supply board of each unit. You can search the web for repair instructions, or even search youtube for a video of the repair.

If you have the same problem I had then when you turn on your recorder it will only display the Hello message on the front of the unit (perhaps very dim) and the blue light on the power button will come on. Your next step is to open the device (about 7 screws) and slide the top off, then examine the tops of the capacitors on the power supply, if the tops of one or more are bulging up then this is a good candidate for attempting this repair.


For parts I found some on ebay and searching the web. If you don't want to do the repair yourself I have also seen people offer the power supply repair on ebay.

LRM-519 bad picture after replacing capacitors


be sure to check and see if any of the capacitors get hot because once they reach a temperature beyond 105 degrees C. they are basically no good and don't work nearly as well as when they were first manufactured. Also you may want to make sure that you have soldered the capacitors with the long black line on the same position that is engraved on the circuit board where they are supposed to be mounted too.
