mine has started doing this as well. I read on linr that I had to get a micro

-usb cord to take my apple tv back to factory via my computer. I inquired at nfuture shop and was told that the phone cord from a iphone 4s will act the same as an micro-usb cable.. I tried the restore on my computer and nothing changed. You would think some one could help

1: Change out your remote battery ( CR 2032 ) just in case.

2: Press MENU & DOWN arrow buttons simultaneously till the indicator light flashes rapidly.

3: Release both buttons.

- Your AppleTV will restart and continue the boot sequence.

this is not working for me. My apple TV 3rd generation, i got home and see it keep flashing, maybe it auto update or something, I tried many way, can not control the apple TV anymore. The white light keep flashing.

My TV screen display no signal.

I had a 2nd-gen AppleTV do the same (flash & non-responsive) thing to me a couple years ago. It is now a nice paperweight. Sorry that didn't help, but not all electronic devices will last forever :(
