Apple TV 4 (A1625) Boot Looping
My Apple TV 4 is not able to fully boot up to the home screen.
It displays the Apple logo that you'd normally see during the boot process. After the light on the front of the device blinks 9 times, it seems to immediately reboot itself.
On just one occasion since this began, iTunes was able to see the Apple TV temporarily when I had connected it with a USB-C cable (with the intent to be to do a software restore on it, if possible).
I have tried two power cables (borrowed from another working Apple TV), two HDMI cables (not perceived to be an issue since we can see the boot logo on screen), different power outlets, and even different televisions.
There are articles on holding the TV and Menu buttons on the remote for 10 seconds to force it to restart. The Apple TV does seem to react to the remove (the light on the front will flash in response to it), but this did not permit a full boot.
Thoughts on what hardware components inside of this would be worth swapping out to get this working again?

Before this issue began, the system was running tvOS 11.2.5, and was not enrolled to receive beta updates.
Thx for the posted info. Worked like a charm after my old Apple TV 4 crashed after a power outage. Spent $10 to get a usb-c off amazon prime and it was worth it. You saved me a few $$. :-)
