    When I turn mine on, it displays "Hello" on the screen and nothing will happen. I can't open the dvd tray or anything. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  • Anonymous Nov 27, 2007

    After 2 years of working, my unit has stopped, when turned on the Display shows Hello and DVD will not open. This happened when I unplugged the unit to move it, when I plugged it back in, it stopped working.



    I was advised by customer support to unplug for 30 secs then plug back in while holding the "stop" button on the unit for 30 secs. Didn't work! I was advised to try a hard reset which if worked would delete everything on the HD. When plugging the unit in, hold "stop" and "play" for 30 secs..still nothing.



    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem yet?

    I have two units that have both stopped working within two days of each other. Mine hangs showing "hello" but nothing happens. I have looked at the hard drive and it is working on my PC, so that is no the problem. Still searching...

  • PinkyPants Dec 03, 2007

    I had the same problem as mentioned above, however I noticed I could hear a quiet ticking sound from inside that corresponded to the subtle flashing of the "Hello" in the desplay. When I took off the cover, I saw a tiny red flashing light on the left side of the motherboard, which produced the sound. Next to it is a nicad battery, and two little red buttons, one marked by a + sign. When I pressed them, one made the light speed up, the other made it stop, but nothing changed. No hard drive spinning up, no change in display (aside from the flashing stopping), no opening of the tray. Any idea what that is all about? Could it just be that the battery is dead? I'll call tech support tomorrow and try replacing the battery and let you know.

    I have had this problem for a month. Has anyone come up witha a solution.

  • moghedien Dec 21, 2007

    The last two times I've had to unplug the LRM-519, it has gotten stuck at "HELLO" When I opened the case and powered up, the green LED 800 lights up and stays on, the red LED 801 lights up for a second, then goes off. There is some sound of HDD activity, but it shuts off when the red LED does. Then fan comes on at this time, but it also shuts down. I have powered down the machine by pressing the power button for five seconds, then powering up the LRM-519 to no avail. I have also replaced the lithium battery which made no difference. Luckily, the machine came back to life, but I'm afraid the next time I have to unplug the unit, it might not come back. If the unit has a bad power supply(as some others have suggested), can anyone here suggest a suitable replacement?

  • Gary Clevenger Jan 08, 2008

    mine problem is pretty much the same, I noticed on powerup the fan starts to spin up (about a second) then it stops and the red LED near the battery goes out at the same time as the fan stops, my display has a fain HELLO displayed, the power button is blue and a green LED labeled LED800 (on the circuit board is lit) otherwise the thing appears dead. I think maybe the power supply is failing and shutting down parts of it during power up. Any help would be appreciated.

  • mikemerk Feb 12, 2008

    I have several of these units and also bought one for parts which allowed me to fix one that died. Upon power up front LED would just sit at "hello" with the top cover off I could als see that the fan would just spin for a secone when I plugged it in. I thought it might be power supply related so I looked at the power supply and noticed that one of the capacitors (green one) looked like it was bubbled on the top instead of flat like the rest. Well sure enough I unsolder the same capacitor (not bubbled and flat on the top) from my spare unit's power supply removed the suspect one solder the good one and it worked. I would assume you could get that capacitor at Radio Shack or a electronics store. Worked for me or maybe I just got lucky????

Thanx for all the useful tips, My problem, pretty similar.

LG LRM-519 tried playing a DVD and POOF... all of a sudden it didnt boot up properly. It would go into "DEMO" mode.

Boot up saying "Hello"
The LG logo would come up, with the dots changing on the tv screen.
Then black screen
then there was a blue line across the black screen and the front display would say "DEMO"
Didnt do anything, couldnt open the disc tray... etc...

Opened the unit up, took out the disc from inside. Then Removed the CMOS battery.

Started the system up with no battery at all in, it said "PLEASE WAIT" then I just unplugged it after waiting far too long (about 2 mins) then put the CMOS battery back in, and voila! My unit was back up. :)

Before more radical procedures .... Try just taking out the CMOS battery.

Good luck all...

A while back my unit suddenly stopped displaying video and sound and the LCD display was stuck at Hello. I had a DVD+R in the drive that was constantly spinning, but would not eject. First, I tried all of the reset procedures listed in the manual and these archives to no avail. Then I took the cover off and removed the DVD+R. Still no progress. So upon the advice of another poster, I put a normal DVD back in the player (through the top with the cover off). This DVD just spun continuously and there was still no video/audio and the LCD still showed Hello. I was about ready to give up, when I decided to remove the CMOS battery. After taking it out for a few seconds and replacing,
I plugged the unit back in and it booted right up...good as new. Been working fine for months since.

I have a similar problem.  The system locked-up on me while playing a DVD.  The drive would not open and the system would not shut-down.  I tried unplugging it, but when I plugged it back in, It didn't do anything.  It simply went dead.  I called LG and they said that it souned like the power supply had gone bad.  I also checked the hard drive on our pc and it's working fine.

A five pound sledge hammer might get the "Hello" to disappear from the display, and the little red light to stop blinking. Tech support is a joke. I'm calling the friend at Microsoft who gave me the damn thing in the first place and will ask him to fix it. If I find out how, I'll post it here.

Oh, and I tried the other solution, and now the blinking has sped up and won't stop unless I remove the little battery. No idea what that means.

I just had this problem for several months. I read your suggestions and none worked. I tried a different sequence. I held the Stop + Pause at the same time and then powered up. With cover off. Held for thirty seconds. Then while the system is powered up I removed the battery from the "J800 socket on the main mother board. I re-inserted the battery. I then did a hard power down. I plugged the unit back in and it went through a start up sequence and said "Please Wait" It appears to be working. Tray comes out and changes channels. Good Luck. Thanks for the inspiration of button pushing??

Hi there

Follow these steps and your dvd will be able to play discs from any region.

*With the player in stand-by mode (take out any discs and leave it alone for several minutes) press on the remote, in this order: TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.

*A menu will appear with several options. Choose Option 2 and then Option 4.

*Type 12450, press enter, then type 00000.
  • Step 4 After the tray opens and closes repeatedly (this is normal), unplug the unit, then plug it back in and turn it on.

    1. Switch power on

    5. Use cursor to scroll up or down until it says "Region 0"

    Unit has locked up.


    The only way I got my H340 off the loading was to plug it into the computer through the data port, then unplug it then plugging it in to the media port then unplugging it. Then it would let me go to the menu. I tried to reformat it, nothing just wiped out all my music. I tried re installing firmware, nothing. I hope this helps.
