Question about Apple Cinema Display 23" HD Monitor
My Apple 23in HD display has pink hue issues one minute it was clear as a bell and the next minute the whole screen went pink!! I've seen MANY posts online about this issue but no solutions. Please help!
SOURCE: Screen resolution.
It's fortunately quite easy to adjust the resolution your MacBook Pro sends over to your external display. Try this:
Hope this helps!

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.

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, folded it to look like a "W" from the side. I then carefully 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 the 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

***CAVEAT AND WARNING***
Use this fix at your own risk.
A faulty voltage regulator is probably the cause of failure. Voltage regulators can start a fire if too much voltage is applied.
Bud Martin's post below describes the electronic component failure that causes this problem. Thank you Bud.

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.
