    Hi,

    I was told that there is 'no market' for Apple TV replacement parts. Is that true? Is there no way to get any parts for it? I am looking for a replacement fan, as mine seems to be on its last legs.

    Thanks,
    2c

    AppleTV parts

    Your best bet might be to search eBay. Several weeks ago, I noticed that various people were selling replacement parts, while others had complete defective :apple:TV's for sale.

    If you do a bit of searching on this forum, you'll find some previous talk about this. In particular, one member (Dynaflash, I think it was) talks about removing the fan and not having any issues. According to him, the fan does virtually nothing. Plus, you can take the rubber pad off the bottom of the AppleTV and improve the airflow (make sure you put some kind of feet on the bottom to raise it up some if you remove the pad).
