    I changed my Apple ID password a few days go. Today, I turned on my Aople tv (2nd gen) and the main screen showed for about 3 seconds, before screen went blank and the can't connect Apple ID or password has changed message popped up. Using the remote at this point doesn't work. Can't acess any settings on screen. I had home sharing turned on before I chaned Apple ID online.

    How can I fix this, so I can use the device?

    While pointing the remote at the ATV, try holding the "Menu" button on the remote for a few seconds to get back to the main menu page.

    Thanks for the reply. That didn't work either. I was able to find a micro USB cable and restored through iTunes. It is working now.
