Question about Apple LED Cinema Display 27 inch flat panel

1 Answer

Have 23 inch cinema that will power on for 15-20 minutes then goes to sleep and the power button will not work . in my limited knowledge of electronics i was thinking that it could be a capacitor issue as it takes a day or so to get back to square 1. found it so 100 bucks for a used logic board dosn't make much sense as i can get a new monitor for 125 or so. has anyone had the same problem , or someone with some electronic back think it is worth replacing the capacitors.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Blinking light on 20 inch apple display

Blinking light on Apple cinema display usually indicates insufficient power from the power supply. Test it with another power supply from ANY cinema display (23" and 27" power supplies are ok to test with).

Interior lights stay on wile i'm driving my 2005 lincoln navigator

Only one bad door switch should do that

The 20 min time out is the GEM or Body Module,
which is normal only because you have a bad switch,
otherwise it goes to sleep when either front door opens

Put radio on & open a door,the radio should go off
& kill the time delay if no issues exist

Apple 23" Cinema HD Display went off

Hey - I just got done with 30 minutes of trying my cinema HD on my macbook pro and plugging and unplugging. When I plugged it into an extension cord in another socket the monitor started right up. I've had this configuration in my office for years with no problem...until today. Did mac send us a system upgrade that caused a problem with the monitor's power source???? Good luck!!!!

Screen does not turn on

Sounds like the 90w power adaptor. This has happened to my 23" Apple monitor several times. (I'm on my third 90 watt "brick"!) It seems to happen after about one year of use. All you can do in the meantime is never shut down or let the monitor go to sleep.
