Question about Apple Cinema HD 23" LCD Monitor
When I switched my mac on yesterday I noticed the image on the screen was flickering, this lasted about 5 mins then the top of the screen went dull, but stayed bright at the bottom (I can see an image over the entire screen). The power button on the monitor is constantly flashing too - any ideas?
For the brave of heart, You can disassemble the monitor. After you get in to the inside of it, you'll see a circuit panel with 6 ballast coils on it. On my Cinema display, what happened was that the solder joints on some of those coils had cracked, causing intermittent connection. After hitting all the connections with a soldering iron to heal the cold solder joints and re-assembling it, it is working perfectly fine now.

Hi Lusciousleri, Some Apple LCD panels can report problems then encounter. I'm betting if you watch you'll see a pattern of a short flash, followed by another short flash followed by a long and then repeating. That indicates a backlight error, which typically means a trip to the authorized Apple repair shop. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate the posting.
