Re: Apple 30inch monitor
The bad news is that when what you described happens, it just gets worse. I have been there before. If it is still covered send it to the manufacturer, as they are the only ones who will fixit, and that is an expensive unit. If they offer extended waurantee, then you can try getting that and waiting a month until it goes out completely and sending it in I just had to do that with a Viewsonic, the tech for viewsonic explained that it is the circuit that powers it up that needs replacing. It is similar to a capacitor tha needs to bump it up on the power up cycle, see if they will pay the shipping as that is what will cost you a bundle, I hope you kept the box as mine cost almost a hundred bucks to send. But do this stuff before it goes completlly, and if it is still under their waurantee, make them pay the shipping or come to the house and fix it.

Simple. Load the Apple System start-up disc first while the computer is running. You should see its icon on on the screen. Then select restart from the Apple Menu on the top left of the screen. Hold down the C key as it reboots. You will now boot into the start-up disc. This method also applies to Disc Warrior and other tools. Alternately, with the computer already running, insert the Apple System start-up disc then go to System Preferences also under the Apple menu, Under the start-up disc icon, select your apple system icon and restart.
Third alternative. With the computer running insert Apple System start-up disc. Restart the computer. Before the chime, press and hold the option key, left-hand bottom side of the keyboard to the left of the Apple (Command) key. You will see your system HD icon and the screen as well as your Apple System disc. Click on the System Disc and that will boot the machine.
1. Go to the desktop
2. Right Click
3. On that list, you should click personalize
4. In the lower right hand corner, click Screen saver (It's in blue letters)
5. In the bottom left hand corner of the window that just popped up, click "Change power settings"
6. In the left side of the new window, (It's in the light gray area) click on "Change when the computer sleeps"
7. Then from here you can set when you want to turn off the display and or put the computer to sleep after how long you have been inactive.
8. Remember to click the "Save changes" button to save what you've done.
The monitor is bad. The flashing is telling you that something inside the monitor has gone out. If it is still under warranty they should either fix your monitor or give you a replacement. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
I have the same problem except it usually happens after Ive left my computer idle for a while... i.e . Overnight, I usually turn off the monitor and I hit the button after I come back to turn it on. I get the same flashing light for several minutes. This has been a problem for several months, but only recenly have i gotten the same error message you mentioned. Each time ive booted the computer up cold or restarted it has worked fine but this time it took longer along with displaying the message:
Top Left to Right: SH770 P001
Bottom Left to Right: AU M170EN05
Anyone else who can clear this up?
