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.

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.
follow directions from the owners manual. while unit is powered up, unplug power cord from back of unit - wait 5-seconds. Depress the DVD open/close button while re-plugging the power supply cord to the unit. LG splash appears onscreen and unit goes into re-set. you do not loose any of you programing or settings.
be more specific with the problems you're having. following the instructions should be straight-forward. if you are using composite cables from the unit to your tv, be sure the composite/480i/480p switch is et to "composite". it'sa small black switch on the back of the unit. make your selection while the unit is powere off. Finally, the composit cables are usually plugged in to the "AV" inputs on the TV -- make sure you set your TV's input to "AV"
