Question about Apple Cinema Display 23" HD Monitor
Sorry to hear that... First thing I have to ask is... is this on a mac OS or on windows? If it is a mac... Well first thing I have to say, which I have mentioned many times before, the issue could be one of an infinite variations. There are to main things to look at in this situation. First is the OS able to recognize it? Basics of hardware installation involves what is known as "Drivers", Your OS might not know what it is and there for is unable to receive or send info. If this is not a mac and a windows OS, I would suggest this and also you should step away from the computer and never even attempt to use them again. Mac and Windows don't work well together, they can but don't. So in assuming that it is a mac and that it is and has responded with the OS and this is something new that has occurred... Here is the lesson for the day... A computer monitor has something like 3 to 5 years of life span. I don't want to hear anything about someone having a monitor for 10 or 20 years with no issue... The one I am using I have had for about 10... the point is that they have a short life span and the thing that you don't think of is that the individual parts contained have a varied life span as well. So in conclusion a repair is more then likely in your future. Repairing a monitor is complex yet simple. As I said it could be 1 of an infinite amount of issues if not multiple. I would suggest a capacitor has failed or fuse but without a complete diagnostic there is no real telling. Every one thinks that one issue is as good as the exact same of some one else, not true only likely. I hope this makes since to you and any one else reading. Good luck on your fix. Here are a few things to try first. Check all connections 2 or 3 times over again. (Just because you think you know it is doesn't make it true.) Second check that the OS is recognizing the make and model properly. (If this is your only monitor the you are out of luck, otherwise plug in another and take a look.) Third Check the resolution and refresh rate. (If the monitor is unable to perform in the setting you have it try another... 800x600 @ 60mhz is safe and reliable for U.S. setup.)
Forth contact the manufacturer for any known issues and fixes. (Some times it is known that these things happen, often enough there has been a recall at which you can get a replacement.) Finally replacement or repair. (If you go the route of repair let me say this... it is easier then you might think but is by no means easy. You need to have knowledge of electronic basics at the least, if you are not at least A+ certified don't even try... contrarily if you are only A+ certified, you should realize that you are not capable of continuing with this type of repair, and further damage may and probably will occur.) All in all you are more then likely out of luck and will probably have to replace this monitor. Good luck.
