Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement board?

mike - Antwort

I have the same question, where can one find the replacement power supply board for the Apple TV 4K?

cclakeman - Antwort

Please, explain the 12V power supply topic: does that means it can be installed in a car or a boat out of the box?

I had an Apple dealer (independent) tell me that they couldn’t order the power supply. They could only send the unit to Apple for exchange with a refurbished unit (at 2/3rds the cost of a new one). Boooo!

Ach Leute! Wieder eine Sackgasse! Es ist so frustrierend – was nutzt eine Anleitung, wenn man die Power Supply nirgends woher bekommt?
