The Apple TV should Reset itself and show you a screen where you can select one of the following: Restart ,Run Diagnostics o rFactory Restore. Select Restart.
The device not being ready is a sign that windows cannot finish installing it or that the device is beyond simple software recovery.
You can try rerunning recuva in safe mode, which will disable some of the performance circuitry that may be interfering.
Also make sure the directory you're trying to save the recovered files to is NOT on the same drive. If it is and the drive is failing it will not work, not to mention you never want to recover to the same drive as it runs the risk of overwriting the files you're trying to salvage with some if the same files.
If safe mode and re-aiming the recovery folder doesn't work then you likely need to send it to a pro with some higher end gear. Try Armor-IT Data Recovery, they're listed in the FixYa database if these suggestions don't work.
Your device is experiencing software issues. You try by removing the battery for 30 seconds and then replacing it. This is soft reset. If the device still fails to load software, then you should visit your local repair shop for a replacement.
