Question about Apple Studio Display 17" LCD Monitor

Connecting Apple Studio Display 17 ( LCD ) to Apple G4 Cube

Just purchased an Apple Studio Display 17 (LCD) from e-Bay for my old Apple G4 Cube.
When the display is connected to the Cube....the Cube does NOT power up.  When the display is disconnected from the Cube, the Cube does power up.  Does this mean I purchased a dead display or is something that I am missing on the set-up?

    Hummm,


    Strange, what were you using before your new 17” ?


    Do you have access to another Mac to test the display?


    Does the display powerUp on it's own?

Check the connector coming from the monitor and see if any pins are crushed or touching. It may be shorting power going to it.

I AM TRYING TO CONNECT MY APPLE STUDIO DISPLAY TO MY MACBOOK PRO AND DONT KNOW HOW OR WHAT CONNECTOR I NEED


Your Studio Display uses an ADC connector, which is very much like DVI but also supplies power for the monitor and adds USB pins so that you can use the USB on the monitor. In order to use it with something that has DVI instead of ADC, you need this adapter from Apple; there are a couple places that have it $5-10 cheaper, but you may as well get it from the people who made it, Apple probably has a better return policy than anyone else in a situation like this. You hook this adapter into the wall and into your laptop, and hook the monitor into the adapter. Hope this helps!

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro


Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.

Apple studio monitor can not turn on


Hi,
I think better check with an electronic technician who knows how to repair your monitor. Monitor has it's life span. Maybe that time, parts of your monitor back down.
That's what I can suggest.

Studio display m7649 picture will not come up when connected to toshiba laptop


I am not sure how youve manage to connect these 2 items. You did not specify whic Portage you have, but even the most recent only has SXGA video port. The Apple cinema display connector is ADC. APPLE DISPLAY CONNECTOR. No computers on the planet have this port except for apple's. It's basically a modified DVI connector. In order for you to use this monitor with your computer, you would have to purchase a DVI to ADC connector , which is another APPLE only item and selld for $100 new. You would then have to purchase a SXGA to DVI adaptor...It sounds like a costly endeavor, and with a connections your Portage's onboard video card , amynot even support the resolution for this monitor.


Hope this helps.

Monitor flickers occasionally then cuts off


Hi April! I don't have a solution to your problem, but I do now have exactly the same problem (and G4/display) ! I wonder if you ever managed to get it fixed? Another posting suggests the LCD inverter may be to blame. Did you investigate this at all? Best wishes Tristram
