    Default Factory reset of Apple tv2 not working


    My Apple TV gen 2 was "dead" - no light, no response to remote or power on/off.
    I tried doing a factory restore via a micro USB cable and iTunes (several times). Each time, the ATV blinks when I connect the USB and the restore completes without any errors.
    At the end of the restore, the iTunes message says "disconnect usb and plug in power and TV hdmi" - when I do this, the unit is still unresponsive - no led, no response to remote or power cycling. How do I get this unit to come on again?
