    Default Apple TV 1st Gen not working

    Hi Guy's,

    I have recently brought an apple tv 1st gen that was being sold as spares or repair..

    Anyway, I plugged it in and got the yellow light flashing.. I looked on the internet and found it to be the hard drive faulty (not spinning).. I have replaced the hard drive and ran through putting the OS on it.. Anyway, I now switch it on and still get the yellow flashing light...

    Has anyone got any ideas on what could be wrong?

    Many thanks in advance

    ASH

    Do you even get the Apple logo on the TV? Does it go into recovery mode (the yellow light flashes in recovery mode)? What is displayed on the TV and how long do you wait (give it at least five minutes)? Can you hear the HD spinning and the HD accessing during boot? Also, does the old HD work in an enclosure?

    Hi & thanks for the reply.

    I get nothing on the screen (even after leaving it for several hours). the new hard drive spins fine but the old hard drive is dead (even in an enclosure)..

    Thanks again

    I'm trying to remember what happened in the one that I had with a failed HD, but I think it still displayed the Apple logo. Even without that, it does sound like there is more wrong with your's than just the HD. The only way to be sure would be to find some who has one that works, and try your HD in their's. If that were to boot, you know it's not your HD or the data on it.
