Black screen with apple tv icon and usb cable going into itunes logo

Unable to get apple tv to play--never happened before.
I upgraded iTunes and still no response. I did note that airplay feature not showing in iTunes.

You need to grab a micro usb cable and restore via iTunes

  • I updated too the latest version of Itunes and my ipod touch froze up with a picture of a usb cable going into itunes on the screen

    I updated to the latest version of Itunes and my Ipod touch froze up with a picture of a usb cable and the i tunes logo

    Well the answer I gave you didn't solve the problem. Is the USB cable and the iTunes logo still on the iPod screen? You could start the "fixing process" by rebooting your computer, connect the iPod again, launch iTunes and see if anything happens.
    This article may prove to be helpful. there are many steps that you can try to get the iPod running again.

    I hope you have a backup if you don't want to lose your iPad contents. You have to restore the iPad now using iTunes on your computer. That's what the message on the screen means.
    Take a look at this.

    Let the battery fully darain. After charging for an least an hour try a reset and restore. Use Recovery mode if necessary.
    If not successful, then time for an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • Black screen with Apple icon!!

    Is it normal a iPad sometimes are showing the Apple icon,,, without pressing on a Button??? Only Black screen with Apple icon in Bout 5 sec.

    If this is appearing it usually means the device is resetting or rebooting. If this is happening at random times and not from input to you, I suggest you have you device examined by an Apple technician. Make an appointment at an Apple Store to have your device examined by a technician. Or contact Apple Support.

  • My ipad is freezing. i got black screen with apple icon in the center. screen isnt turning on. any suggestions

    my ipad is freezing. am getting black screen with apple icon the middle. i can't start on or even turn off ipad. any suggestions.

    Try rebooting:  Press and hold BOTH the home and power buttons at the SAME time for at least 10 seconds (ignore the red slider) until the Apple Logo appears, then let go of both buttons and your iPad should restart.  Let us know if this solves your problem.

    I would suggest you try to update your iOS 8.0.2 to the latest iOS 8.1.0 with iTunes on your computer. Don't try to do the update on your iPhone, it takes time and some error always occur. After updating to iOS 8.1.0, if your iPhone can't restart properly, try Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS trial version. It will say that your iPhone is not in normal mode, offering you the option 'restart the device'. Just click the button to let your iPhone restart.

    You should really read the manual.
    "How do you restore from backup? "
    Restore.  When given the choice, choose to use backup.
    "And how can I check to see if the pics and videos are on my computer somewhere first??"
    They would only be where you put them.  What program did you use to import them?  Pics/vids taken with ipod are not part of the sync process at all.  You should be importing them just as you would with any digital camera.
    If you did not import them, then they are not on your computer.

  • Iphone 5 got wet last week.  Been in rice until today.  It turned on and worked fine, I could see a water spot in the middle but still worked fine, 3 hours in it shut off to black screen with apple logo.  Any ideas what to do?

    Iphone 5 got wet last week.  Been in rice until today.  It turned on and worked fine, I could see a water spot in the middle but still worked fine, 3 hours in it shut down to the black screen with apple logo.  Screen stays up for 10 seconds ago and then goes black and then black screen with apple logo comes back.  Any ideas what to do?

    At this point it's likely that the iPhone has suffered damage and you'll have to take or send it to Apple for replacement. If you have AppleCare+ coverage on the iPhone, the cost will be US $49. Otherwise the cost will be US $229.

  • After wiping phone to sell phone will not turn on, it stays on a black screen with apple logo.after forced reboot, it goes to same exact screen. any ideas?

    my brothers girlfriend gave me her old iPhone. the last thing she did to the working phone was to wipe it to erase all her private info. however instad of booting up like normal, all i get is a black screen with apple logo. ive forced a reboot and it goes to same screen. sometimes it will turn off and reboot by itself, and occasionally it wil give a low battery icon, and it will show it charging for a few min then go back to black screen with Appple logo. any ideas anyone?

    Try to charge it for about 10min using th adapter, then connect to your computer in recovery mode, explained here: iOS: Unable to restore

  • Black Screen with Apple Logo randomly appears.

    HELP! When I'm using my 60 gig 5th gen. ipod...I listen to a song, or watch a movie and after 2-5 the song/movie stops, and the black screen with apple logo appears. It almost seems like the ipod is just reseting itself or something. I don't understand the problem.

    Hello!! I had the same issue. (with the 30 Gig) Eventually, my iPod went berserk, and kept reseting over and over until the battery died.
    I did fix it. It's pretty simple, in fact. Warning: ALthough i hate to say it, you need to update to iPod software 1.1. There are several bugs with this update, see the thread with all the replys. However, it seems to be more annoyance than real issue, and 1.1 completely, utterly stoped the apple logo screen. The saving of my battery, and prevention of the resets, to me, outweighs the minor annoyances of glitches with the update.
    Glitches i've noticed: holding the menu button no longer turns on/off the back light. Some videos no longer copy to the iPod, despite the fact that iTunes can play them, and the used to copy, and are within iPod's capabilities. They are generally converted with a program other than QuickTime. There are others people hae noticed, but that's all that i've seen so far.
    Since you have Mac 10, simply do a software-update, and download all the neccessary software. Update the iPod.
    Some videos are not likely going to copy to the iPod. This is due to the update. You need to re-encode them. If you don't want to pay for QT Pro, there's a free utility to covert nearly any video to iPod format. It's called iSquint. (do a search on versiontracker.com) I've used it a lot in the last few days, and it's great! The videos it converts seem perfectly suited to iPod, despite the update! Unfortunately, there seems to be no way around the error iTunes gives you about not-copying videos due to iPods's inability to play a video without a re-encode.
    Hopefully, this will help you out!

  • Ipod won't play video/podcasts or audio only a black screen with the play symbol and volume/progress bar. games work fine! any ideas?

    Ipod video classic 5th gen won't play video/podcasts or audio only a black screen with the play symbol and volume/progress bar. games work fine! any ideas?

    Here's some more info.
    I tried installing the latest iTunes to my housemate's PC, logging into iTMS with my account, authorizing his machine to play my content, restoring my iPod to the factory settings, downloading the videos and copying them to my iPod.
    It worked fine, and I can play my videos.
    I have done the exact SAME thing on my own home PC twice, after completely uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and the Apple Software Updater. But I still can't get any videos downloaded on my home PC to play on my iPods.
    Any thoughts?

  • HT1553 I did the back up as instructed... Installed a larger hard drive and followed the restore instructions... Now I get a white screen with a folder icon and blinking question mark. When trying to set startup with new drive I get a bless tool error...

    If you have installed a new hard drive , you will need to have formatted it in Disk Utility correctly. This may explain your problem.
    Boot  into your 10.6 Install disk again at the top menubar > Utilities > select Disk utility and in there select your new hard drive, and select the tab Erase and choose to make the format as  Mac OS Extended Journaled. When that is finished look in the main window to make sure that the partition map scheme says GUID Partition Table.
    Now go to the Restore tab and reinstall from your backup.
