Question about LG Electronics LRM-519 Digital Media Recorder
Hard drive work. Display screen is dim. Have replaced the battery. No use. When turning unit on, fan runs for about 4 seconds, then stops. Operation won't go any further. Can't find anyone to work on this unit. HELP!!!
I know its a pretty basic fix, but try it before sending the unit into LG for the dreaded "cannot be fixed" or $69 story...
Open the unit, remove CMOS battery, start unit without battery, it should display "please wait" wait a couple mins, then unplug / replace battery and restart. Hopefully you will have the success that I did! (I doubt this fixes all your problems... however it most certainly fixed my unit that was stuck with dim Hello, then "DEMO" mode problem)
Best luck to all!

I sent mine to LG with $69, this is the response I got "The LRM-519 sent to us for repair is needing a part 6871RP0801A which has been discontinued". It looks like we are all out of luck for repairs to this unit...

I had a LRM-519 that would not get past a very dimly lit "hello" on the LED screen. I called tech support and was advised to make sure no disk was in the unit and turn off the power from the unit (not the remote) and unplug it from the wall outlet. While unplugged, hold down the power button for 30 seconds then plug it back in. This didn't work the first time, but after a few tries it worked for me. My unit hadn't worked for nearly 3 months prior to this. Good luck.
According to LG support, it would have cost $69 for labor plus parts to repair the unit. The main board/power board is $40.
