Question about Apple M8536 23" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Apple m8536 monitor does not power on when using a dp800 with pr

I have a dual processor desk top dp800 with the combined vga-adc video card. Does anybody know of a possible incompatibility. Or maybe how to run some checks on this monitor even if it means opening it up just to be sure that it is in working condition. The card works when I use the vga section and a different monitor so I presume the card is good???

SOURCE: 22" Apple Cinema Display doesn't power on

This may be an issue with the display detecting the wrong video format or is using an unsupported resolution for this Apple Cinema Display 22"

Procedure:
• Make sure your Mac is turned off.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the start up sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Mac to start up.

If that does not help here is additional support reference from Apple regarding its LCD displays:

Apple Support Link:
Power Light Flash Issues

Let me know if this helps!

This issue is can be caused by loose cable connections or a loose DVI graphics card in the computer. Check cable connections and verify there are no bent pins.

Ensure that the DVI graphics card is securely connected in the computer.

You can also try this procedure with your Mac:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} -PRAM RESET -
Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:

• First, hold in your power button for approximately 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown, if you have not already turned your Mac off.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)
This should help with the freezing issue:

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Mac to start up.

• Please update me to let me know if this works.



A PRAM is a good troubleshooting procedure for display issues.



If this does not work, this may be a genuine issue with the graphics card in your Mac, more so, than 2 monitor just burning out. You may need to take the Apple ADC 17" in for service, if the procedures above fails.

Dual vga displays


With some motherboards the on board Video is automatically cancelled out when a slot dependent Video Controller is present. Bios will not change that option. If you want to use two Monitors at the same time, get a DUAL Video out card.

The "cable" you talk about is probably the power cable of the monitor. You will also need a VGA or a DVI cable to make it works.

Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?

You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \

Good Luck!

Switch to alternate 2 computers and dual monitors


What you probably want is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch that supports dual monitors. It's a simple device that allows you to plug multiple computers into one set of monitors, keyboard, and mouse and switch between controlling them.

I don't know of any that support mixing analog and digital connections for the monitors, but using a VGA to DVI adapter for one of the monitors should solve that problem cheaply.
