Flashing white light on 1st generation apple tv
Welcome to the Apple community.
Unfortunately that isn't a good sign, you might try removing ALL the cables from the Apple TV and leaving it for a while before powering it up again. If this doesn't help, your unit may have failed.
Actually I was able to restore by connecting with a micro USB to the ITunes on my computer. Thank you for your response.
If you were able to do that, then it wasn't a first-generation Apple TV, you can only do that with the Apple TV 2 or later.
As far as I know it is the 1st generation. We have had for over a year. I am glad it worked. We just hooked it up about 3 months ago so we have not been using it for too long. I would not have been happy if it had to be fixed.
Thanks again for you help.
Yes, it's good that it was fixable, for future reference though, it's the Apple TV 2, if it's black, the Apple TV 1 was about 8" square and silver and grey.
Ok, thanks for the info.
