Question about Apple Cinema Display 23" HD Monitor

Broken power connector

Any idea where to get a replacement connector for the special power lead used with this monitor? Everything is ok with this monitor except some idiot knocked into this lead plugged into the "white brick" and smashed the plug.

    A white lead comes out of the back of the display and splits four ways going to a USB connector, a Firewire connector, a DVI connector and a special 'Apple' 12-way connector which goes to the "white brick" - this is the one I'm talking about.

    Apple authorized technician says that the monitor is a "write off" and the warranty is void - but I can't believe that I have to throw it away just because one plug has broken! How eco-unfriendly is that?? Surely someone makes replacement plugs?

    It would be a big improvement if Apple made this connector recessed inside the "white brick" like the mains power connector on the Mac itself ... I wish ...

  • skifan Oct 24, 2007

    Does anyone know how to open up the "white brick"?

  • skifan Oct 24, 2007

    Oh!

    By the way, do you know how to open up the monitor itself?

    My cat chewed up one of the 4 splits at the end of this cable. Apple is charging U$ 480.00 for repair, but I am sure there must be a cheaper/easier way. Anyone?

    I have the same problem. I explained to Apple that it may have been a manufacturing fault that went unnoticed but over time degraded and broke when I was tidying up and rolled my workstation back in place and that's when it gave way.


    I've been to the Apple retailer who had a looked and then told me to contact the customer relations department who tried to see if they could replace it. Unfortunately, they couldn't because of the way it looked on the photos.


    The other option is to claim it on home insurance

I do, but it's not reccomended, and it severely dangerous as you would have to discharge the display...which if you decide to do, may lead to ingesting High voltage....not reccomended.

How to fix code po500 on a 2001 ford ranger


A code P0500 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not reading (functioning) properly
  • There is a broken/frayed wire leading to the vehicle speed sensor
  • The vehicle's PCM is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle
check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

I got power to coil nothing comes out of coil


if you have power to the coil the only things that can be wrong are: -
1. the coil is duff.
2. The HT lead is broken.
3. the plug cap is duff, broken.

Remove plug cap and see if there is a spark from the wire core when the lead is placed near the engine/frame.

If it sparks OK replace the plug cap,. no spark means either the coil or the lead are duff. If you can replace the lead try testing again without the cap. Hope this helps.

There is no power to the monitor,it is not coming on when i start up computer


If the AC plugs directly into the monitor, try reseating the power cable or replacing. If the monitor uses a power supply (ac adapter brick) check that the power cable is fully inserted in the brick and the dc connector is fully plugged into the monitor. Also check the dc connector for bent or broken pins.

My samsung syncmaster 914v isnt working when i plug it in and turn it on all it does is flicker every like 10 seconds


Ok, a few basic things to check/try.
  1. What colour is the power LED, does it change when the screen flickers?
  2. Is the power cable firmly seated.
  3. Is the monitor cable firmly seated.
  4. Try another power lead.
  5. Take a look at the plugs on the monitor lead, does it look like there are any bent/broken pins.
  6. Again, try another monitor lead.
  7. Try connecting the monitor to another pc.
If none of these have any effect, you'll need to take it in somewhere to get it looked at.

My monitor is not showing red colors? how do i fix


There is a number of possible reasons why your monitor lost the red color. A good guess, however, is a broken cable or connector. Check the plug and socket of the cable for bend or broken pins. If everything looks OK, try to change for a different cable.
If the problem persists, a pin of the connector soldered to the PCB internally may be broken. This is an easy repair for a service technician but I really recommend you do not do it yourself.

Hi,

there is a possibility that you may have pulled off the power switch, to motherboard Connector.
This will be at the bottom right hand-side of the Motherboard.
You should have a 2 cable connector for. pwr/sw Power Switch. hdd/led Hard-Drive led. rst/sw reset Switch.
Check those First. if you didn,t remove the power lead, before attempting any work. you may have arced a current, and damaged the motherboard Or PSU. check the Fuse In The Actual plug lead. to determine the actual power Switch, without a multi-meter. remove the power lead, from the Computer. remove the power/sw connector From motherboard, And Bridge the power/sw with A plastic jumper Block. then replace power lead, and should boot up. If it does the fault is the actual power switch faulty.

Black monitor no power


Hi. On some motherboards the 'Enable usb Support' option in system can cause this. Use a conventional ps2 mouse and keyboard, unplug all usb devices, enter system and ensure that 'Enable USB Keyboard Support' is turned off and continue setting up as usual. Try locating a bios upgrade for the mobo concerned.

I hope this helps. Let me know how you get on.

DESKTOP COMPUTER TURN ON PROBLEM


In this case it is normally a voltage regulator near the cpu that is shorted and will need to be replaced.
Remove everything from the board, except the heat sink fan and plug in the big power connector, do not connect the 4 pin connector. Turn the power on as you were before.
Using a multimeter, check the voltages on those regulators. You should find them running in pairs normally, but make sure to check all of them and try to pick the odd one out.
Put your black lead to ground, and use some electrical tape to cover all of the red leads probe except for 2mm at the tip to help prevent shorting out anything else while you are there.
