Restore Apple TV

If Apple TV still doesn’t respond after restarting, try restoring it. When you restore Apple TV, all data is erased.

Restore Apple TV. Do the following:

  • In Settings Settings, go to System > Reset, then select Restore. Restoring Apple TV can take some time, so be patient.

  • If Apple TV still doesn’t respond, disconnect the power and HDMI cables from Apple TV. Connect one end of a USB-C cable (sold separately) to Apple TV and the other end to your computer. Open iTunes on your computer, select Apple TV in the Source list, then select Restore.
