SOURCE: Screen resolution.

Hello there!

It's fortunately quite easy to adjust the resolution your MacBook Pro sends over to your external display.  Try this:

  1. Click the blue Apple icon, at the top-left of your display (while connected to your 23" external monitor).
  2. Click on "System Preferences".
  3. Click on "Displays" in the "Hardware" row.
  4. A display preferences window should now open on each display... one on your laptop, and one on the 23".
  5. In the "Display" tab of this preference window, specifically the one located on your 23" display, should be a list of resolutions available.  Scroll down and select the highest resolution, which for a 23" should be 1920x1200.
This should adjust your resolution to the maximum.  To make these settings easier to get to in the future, check the box in the display preferences labeled "Show displays in menu bar".  You'll see a small icon, meant to look like a display, appear in your menu bar.  Going forward, you can click on this to set/change resolution settings without going through all the above steps.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Apple Cinema Display 23" HD - Dust on inside of screen.

The dust in a can will ruin a computer because it only blows the dust around. Use a vacuum cleaner or a dry vac to get rid of dust.

The only solution to your problem would be to take the screen apart and clean the dust out.

SOURCE: Apple Cinema Display 23" LED short-long-short flash prob.

Hello,
I had the "short long short" blinking led problem with my
23" ACD after a power outage which left my screen blank and
my cheek wet with a tear for my baby. I read somewhere that
a guy was getting a 1 volt reading on the middle pin of his
damaged 90 watt power block. I figured maybe the display might
work if I could somehow block the middle pin. So I cut a small
strip of paper wide enough to block just the middle pin and long
enough to cover both sides and it looked like a "W". I gingerly
pressed it into the brick receptacle with a toothpick leaving
just a little slack so it would not tear when I pushed in the
small white plug. It was a bit of a tight fit but guess what.

IT WORKED! I am now enjoying my beloved monitor anew and saved
$$$ on replacement brick or repair.

If you want to try it and you feel you’ve nothing to lose, make
sure you cover just middle pin (both sides) and you may have to try a couple of times. It worked for me. I hope you have good luck too.

Regards, Moozler

SOURCE: Apple Cinema HD Display 30'' black screen, power light blinking

I don't know what might have happened, but a number of years ago I had an apple monitor and the power light on it started blinking, so I got in touch with apple and they told me that it's flashing an error code, so they told me what the blinking indicated and fixed it.

So I think the blinking of the power light on your monitor could be indicating an error code so I suggest you call apple and they will identify what the error is indicating.

How do I adjust the color on monitor?


Instructions
  1. PC Monitor
    • 1Check the color balance options on your monitor. Typically, there is a button on the monitor itself that can be used to enter the Settings menu and configure color. The color balance may have somehow been changed, resulting in the pink image.
    • 2 Calibrate the color system for your monitor through Windows. Press "Windows-X" to open the Power User menu and select "Control Panel." In the Search bar, type "calibrate display" and click on "Calibrate Display Color" when it shows up. Provide your administrator password or confirmation if prompted.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3 Check to see if the cable connecting the monitor to the computer is loose by lightly jiggling the connector at both points. If it's loose, this could be the cause of the display error. Secure the connection and see if the issue has cleared up.
    • 4 Check the connectors themselves for bent or damaged pins. A damaged pin can cause a faulty connection, which can lead to errors like a pink-tinted screen. If the pins are just bent, you can try to bend them back into place with a pair of needle nose pliers. If they are otherwise damaged or missing, you'll have to replace the cable itself.
    • 5 Perform a factory reset of your monitor if replacing the cable has not repaired the issue. Instructions for a factory reset vary from one model and manufacturer to the next, so consult your owner's guide for detailed instructions.
    • 6 Connect your computer to a different monitor if the problem persists after factory reset. If the problem persists with a new monitor, the issue is likely with your video card. If this is the case, consult the card's manufacturer for detailed diagnosis and assistance. If not, your monitor may be damaged and incapable of rendering a properly colored image. Take it to a repair professional for repair or replace it.

LG E1940S Monitor displays with a pink hue. I am using with a T40 ThinkPad and XP


A pink hue is a sign the CCFL lamp is about to fail.
The CCFL lamp is a fluro like tube approx. 2mm in diameter that is located on the bottom edge of the LCD screen that supplies the back light to the screen.
Replacement CCFL lamp is available from this WEB site.

The whites are not as white and there is starting to have a slight pinkish purpleish haze around the edges around the screen its not bad yet but I have tow and you can see that it is not as bright as the...


When an LCD starts getting pinkish to redish hues, the screen is starting to fail. You are in the biggining stages of losing the screen. There is no repair....only replacement.

Pink Hue on my Princeton Moniter


If you have access to another monitor, check it with your computer. Pink or red hues are usually indicators of a failing backlight bulb or ccfl bulb that sits in the bottom of the display and lights up the lcd.

The laptop starts up with a pink hue


Make sure the LCD is completely attached to the system board. I've had them come partially out and cause this. If this doesn't help, your LCD and/or inverter could be going bad.

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!!!!
