Title:

Warning message Apple TV overheating

Text:

Hi

My Apple TV 3rd gen  had started displaying message:

'warning' 'apple tv is overheating and will shut down , this message will disappear when apple tv is ready'   or something very similar. The unit is in a well ventilated area and has never been abused, and is less then 3 years old. Ive updated the software( it barely let me do that before failing) and ive tried resets etc.  but it isn't possible to even  turn the unit off now , only  by unplugging the power lead.

Any help tips or advice would be most appreciated

Regards
