Question about LG Electronics LRM-519 Digital Media Recorder
Upon starting, the unit displays welcome and does not respong to inputs. The DVD tray will not open and the menu screen will not come up. Any assistance that can be provided would be appreciated.
Not the solution but it has been suggested to remove and replace the CMOS battery. Can anyone help me finding the CMOS battery on an LG RHT387H

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...

I powered up while holding the play/pause button on top of the recorder and out popped the dvd tray!

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??
