When I plug in my Apple TV 2 into power, the light flashes as it's starting up.
However, as HDMI plug is put in, the light dims to barely on, then the light goes out all together.
I cannot get apple tv to turn on with the HDMI cable plugged in.
Have you tried using a different HDMI cable or even trying it on a different TV.
I have tries new cables, new TVs all of the above. The light responds to buttons pressed on the remote, but nothing comes up on the screen. I think the hdmi port must be screwed.
