Windows PC and graphics card that supports DVI ports with dual-link digital bandwidth and VESA DDC standard for plug-and-play setup. You can check the specification of the graphic card and see whether they support those. For the cable if they are not in the box of the display, you can check the following ones.

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.

22" Apple Cinema Display doesn't power on


This may be an issue with the display detecting the wrong video format or is using an unsupported resolution for this Apple Cinema Display 22"

Procedure:
• Make sure your Mac is turned off.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the start up sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Mac to start up.

If that does not help here is additional support reference from Apple regarding its LCD displays:

Let me know if this helps!

The screen is half blue


You many need to reseat the Apple DVI to ADC Adapter that is connecting your Apple Cinema HD 23" to your Mac.

If that adapter is not properly seated, it can cause a color distortion with the display. Also, if the adapter is damaged, that can also impact proper resolution and color balance.

To try and resolve this issue for you, I have a procedure I would like you to try:

----------------------------------------------------------------
-SAFE BOOT MODE-

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't isolate what may be affecting your display's resolution.

Try these steps:

• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain startup items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is an additional support reference for troubleshooting Apple Cinema Displays color or distortion issues.

This should help. If it does not let me know.
