Re: Monitor blink

Try unplugging wait 30 secs or so, then plug back in... I've got one doing the same thing... usually works.. don't be gentle, though

Re: Monitor blink

1. this is may be due to the 5 volt power supply. which may be down. the current u can measure is ok (5volts) but the ampers may be down. because in off or stand by position it consume very little current but at the time of self test it consume more then 900 milliamps. ( replace the regulator of 5 volt)
2. May be the EHT transformer drive transistors are short. check them, if there is any leakage or if they are short then replace them.

The 470uF 25 Volts capacitors on the power supply board are probably bad. Replace them all and tell us the result !

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.

What would cause your power button light on the monitor keep blinking and the screen is black and you have trouble getting the light to stay on and get the picture back on. what is the problem. thanks,...

If the button on monitor is blinking, it means your computer is either turned off or in standby mode (or in hybernation).
You should push the power button on your computer to restore it from standby (or hybernation).
