Question about Apple Cinema Display 23" HD Monitor

Image/screen shifting with mouse position

Have an older 23" Cinema Display with a dual G4.  when I move the mouse pointer past the middle point (horizontal or vertical) it shifts the entire screen about a millimeter up/down or left/right, causing blurring in the letters.  also notice that letters are blurry in the middle more than they are to the top/bottom/left/right.

    I'm having the same issue. The screen just started misbehaving last night while using the computer. It seems that the screen is divided into four quarters, and depending on the position of the mouse, the other three will stretch distorting the images, on both vertical and horizontal lines. If I turn the resolution down to 1024x768 or lower, the issue seems to stop, but I can't work at that low resolution. The screen has not been disconnected for years, and power cycling the screen made no difference.

I realized my issue was that the screen was "slightly" zoomed in using the universal access panel in the system preferences. Turning it off, or zooming out completely solved the problem.

My 23" Apple cinema display (2002) has black screen and code flashes three short flashes. How do I find out if the monitor is dead or the power supply?


The only way to test is to use a known working power supply or known working cinema display with the parts you already have.

How do you print screen?


Hi John,

To print the screen what you see, Press the Print Scn Button on top row of your keyboard.

Open Paint Brush or Microsoft Word and mouse right click and click left click on Paste.

Click on File and Print button or CTRL + P key to open the print dialog box and click print.

It used to be much easier earlier when there were dot matrix printer which would directly print when Print screen button was pressed. But today you need to follow this work around to print the screen

Ron

My desktop image shifts as I move my mouse arrow around the screen. How do I stablize the image


What you have done is accidently magnified your screen slightly. To correct this hold down your ctrl key and scroll down on your mouse, this should fix it. Hope this helps.

Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.

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


Well, I pretty much knew that the display would have to be disassembled to clean the dust out. I should have been more specific by asking if the display "could" be taken apart to clean it out, especially since the dust is in between the image and light source layers.
