    My Apple TV will not turn on! It is plugged into the wall and there is no light illuminating and nothing is showing up on my TV. However, when I plug my Apple TV into a usb and into my computer the white light flashes. I was able to restore my device to see if that would help but it didn't do anything.

    Any advice! Thanks!

    Have you tried any of the following?

    • Swap HDMI cables
    • Swap HDMI ports
    • Connect it to a different TV
    • Connect it to a different power outlet or circuit

    Assuming you've checked the power cord & circuit, the power supply in the Apple TV is apparently dead. That's bypassed when doing a USB update.

    Apple will do a flat-rate repair on an ATV for US$59

    Are you doing a factory update the the latest iOS or trying to keep your jailbreak?

    I did a factory reset so I am assuming I lost jailbreak capabilities?


    Doesn't matter if the Apple TV is dead though...
