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).

My 30 inch Apple HD Cinema Display is stuttering/flickering upon opening video in full screen mode. Any idea on what the problem may be?


Check your connection to the screen. You may have a running application / process that requires a lot of processing power from your Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). If you wait until the application has completed its task, or quit the program, videos should run fine.

Try to shine aflashlight on the screen and seeif you see an image. I have a Apple cinema HD 30 (A1083). I have no power. I checked the
power supply and it is good. I bought a main board from ebay. I still had the
same problem so I returned it (minus a 15% restocking fee). I read somewhere
that you have to have the usb cables plugged into the computer for it to work.
Is this true? If so I may have returned the part I needed to make this monitor
work. (just my luck) I bought this monitor for $25 used off craigslist. I am

fantastic the dispay is. I am ready to do some gaming on it. I am an electronic
technician but not so familar with this apple monitor. I figured I would turn
to this forum to learn from some apple experts out there. Any imput would be
wonderful in troubleshooting my problem.

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!!!!
