Apple TV stuck in restore in iTunes - message, "waiting for apple TV" and then nothing happens for hours.

Hello having major issue with Apple TV, have searched the forums over the last week but can't find a solution that works.
My ATV is not working when I had it  plugged into TV so I thought I would plug it in and restore it via iTunes. I have tried three different micro-USB (all of which work on other devices). So in iTunes I had downloaded the latest ATV software and it starts to restore the ATV (extracts/prepares/verifies) but the restore gets stuck on the part of "waiting for Apple TV" and then nothing happens, as in overnight nothing happens. I have tried using the remote to reset the ATV but nothing. The flashing light is constant.
Anyone got an ideas on what to do when the restore doesn't work?

Best to take it to Apple
