As described in the header, my Apple TV (40GB) has its LED blinking amber non-stop, no video, no audio. It is about 2 months old and I have never had issue with it before.

They stopped making that model four years ago.  There is no way it is two months old.  Trying connecting it to a computer with iTuens via a USB cable to see if you can re-install the firmware.

  • Apple TV LED blinking amber non-stop, no video, no audio

    As described in the header, my Apple TV (120GB) has its LED blinking amber non-stop, no video, no audio. It is about 2 months old and I have never had issue with it before.
    The manual says this indicates that it is starting up, but I can tell you, it is not starting up.

    Is the light only blinking amber? White and amber mean bigger problems. See what apple says.

    If all you are getting is a bad booting, try running a diagnostic.

    Also, if you give it a reboot (unpluging), leave it unplugged for a good 30 seconds to a minute. I bet there could still be power to the logic board, and you need to let the internal led bleed it dry otherwise the internal memory can cause some problems.

    I just got the iPhone 5s, I have had a 4 for the last few years, my husband uses a galaxy.  I have never had issues with any of our phones connecting to the cars Bluetooth until this one sometimes it will connect and sometimes it won't.  I drive a gm car.  A friend of mine drives an Acura and said she is also having the same problem?  I have to connect the phone every time I get in the car. 

    Turn Off BT on your Phone & ReBoot..

  • My iphone5 is 2 months old and I have never synched it to itunes. If I sync it now will it reset the iphone?

    I have had an iPhone 5 for the past two months. I have never synced my iPhone into iTunes on the computer. iTunes is telling me to start  my new iPhone, but I don't want to take the chance of losing all my apps and having everything be reset. Is it safe for me to set up my iPhone 5 on iTunes? Will it not reset it?

    Read this about syncing http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1386
    Do a backup first http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766
    At some stage in all of this you will be asked to transfer purchases to your computer.  Select yes.
    There is no need for a reset

  • HT4623 How can I retrieve my 4 digit security code? iPad is asking for it before an update and I have never had to use one before.

    How can I retrieve my four digit security code? I've never been asked to use one before when trying to do an update.

    There is no way to retrieve the 4 digit code. You have to restore the device if you don't know the code and you cannot unlock the device. There have been more than a few users that are asking about this and they are all saying the same thing that you are saying - they never set a passcode before.
    What is the exact message that you are getting when you try to update?

  • So, I have had the Ipod 4th generation for about a year now, and I have never had any trouble adding music onto my ipod until this latest version of itunes came out. Now, I cannot add any more music onto my ipod! I Have grayed out songs that I can't play

    So, I have had an Ipod touch (fourth generation) for a little less than a year now, and I have never had any problems with it until the latest version of itunes came out. Now, my ipod never can sync (I left it up for an hour before and it only got to step 2 out of 7), and I can't add any more music to my ipod! To make it worse, about 100 songs that I had deleted off my ipod, but could still be found in my itunes library, appeared again on my ipod! But, they are grayed out and I can't listen to them so they just take up space.
    Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

    Make sure all of the videos used in the project that is having that problem are from the same event. If they are from multiple events, move them all into one event.

  • Why has my 3G stopped working on my iphone? It is enabled, and I never had problems with it before, but for about 2 months now it has refused to work and as a result I can't send any attachments such as photos or videos via text.

    Cellular data is a feature from your phone carrier.  Have you contacted them to resolve your issue.

  • My account is asking for 2 security question answers. I have never had to do this before. Saying it is the first time I have used this computer to purchase not true I have used this computer everythime. Then it tells me that I put in the wrong answers.

    My account keeps asking for 2 security question answers saying this is the first time I used this computer not true used this computer many times. Then when I put ansers in says incorrect answers. What's up with this?

    There have a few other posts from people saying that they are being asked their questions despite it not being the first purchase on the computer or device.
    If you have a rescue email address (which is not the same thing as an alternate email address) set up on your account then go to https://appleid.apple.com/ and click 'Manage your Apple ID' on the right-hand side of that page and log into your account. Then click on 'Password and Security' on the left-hand side of that page and on the right-hand side you should see an option to send security question reset info to your rescue email address.
    If you don't have a rescue email address (you won't be able to add one until you can answer 2 of your questions) then you won't get the reset option - you will need to contact iTunes Support or Apple to get them reset.
    e.g. you can try contacting iTunes Support :http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Account Management , and then 'Forgotten Apple ID security questions'
    or try ringing Apple in your country and ask to talk to the Accounts Security Team :http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57
    When they've been reset (and if you don't already have a rescue email address) you can then use the steps half-way down this page to add a rescue email address for potential future use : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312 . Or you could change to 2-step verification : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5570

  • I download exclusively from itunes and I have been having issues with the music stopping after about 25 seconds either skipping to the next song or just going silent and still moving as if it is playing? how do i fix this?

    I have an ipod nano, classic and Iphone4s...i download itunes, it says it is completely downloaded, i go to play it either on my pc or on one of my devices and it plays about 24 seconds of the song and skips to the next song. Sometimes it continues to "play" as in the timer is still moving but there is no sound or picture...how do i fix this? It is really frustrating...i let it go with one or 2 songs but when it is everything I download any more I'm getting fed up. I tried going into the info on the song and options and making sure it didn't have the stop time changed (the solution that apple support gave me) Any solutions? I want to actually listen to the music I download!!!
