Question about Apple Studio 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

I have a 17in Apple Studio Display connected to my 2007 Intel Macbook. When I turn off mirroring, my mouse only works on my MacBook screen and not the Studio Display. I would like to use the Studio Display and have the MacBook screen off. How can I do this?

If you own just a Macbook this is what you need http://store.apple.com/us/product/M8661LL/B#overview

Make sure you do the full research on these things, so that you don't spend money on the wrong thing, adapter and connectors can be somewhat confusing.

SOURCE: I AM TRYING TO CONNECT MY APPLE STUDIO DISPLAY TO

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!

SOURCE: Hi i have an apple display connected to my macbook

Unplug the display from your macbook, and restart your macbook, when it's fully restarted and you are logged in, plug the display back in, then check to see if it is detected. Macbooks don't like to be put to sleep (shutting the lid) with a display connected, this causes issues with display detection. So always unplug your display and wait about 5 seconds before closing the lid on your macbook, and when you open the lid, wait another 5 seconds before plugging in your display. The only time it is acceptable to leave the display plugged in when you close the lid is when you plan to use the macbook in clamshell mode, this is done by plugging in and configuring your display, shutting the lid, and then "waking" the macbook from sleep mode with an external mouse (wired or wireless will work). That will start the macbook using the external display as the main display, without even turning on the macbook built-in display. Never connect or disconnect an external display when your macbook is off or in sleep mode. Have a nice day.

What cable is needed to stream Netflix to a Macbook?


If you want to use a TV as a secondary or mirrored monitor. All you would need is a Mini-DVI to HDMI adapter. Use the adapter to connect an HDMI cable between your computer and the TV. Once connected you will have an option to use it as a secondary or mirrored (exact copy of what is on your laptop) monitor. If you have one of the newer macbook pros you need a Mini Display port to HDMI adapter.

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.

Macbook & Projectors


Hi there
Yep, sounds like the machine thinks it is an additional monitor. So you can run it as that but the mirroring does not work. So the mirroring works with your own projector?

There are a couple of things you can do. Try connecting the projector and power it up when you machine is off and then boot your machine up. If the mirroring still does not work open up your display panel look under arrangement. You should then see two displays. One will have a red line around it. That is your laptop. In the display panel you can then drag the second display over your display and that should have the same effect as mirroring.

That's the low tech first try.

Monitor non functional


Am I correct in understanding that your MacBook is operating properly, but when you attach your external monitor it doesn't show anything?
I often connect my black MacBook 2GHz to my flat screen's VGA port. Sometime the screen doesn't respond for one reason or another. The fastest solution is typically to mirror the screens then return to normal. When that doesn't work, it's usually enough to restart the MacBook while it's still plugged in to the external monitor. If neither of those work, try connecting to a different monitor or finally try replacing the connector.
Unfortunately those connectors don't have the best life spans. (See Apple's customer reviews on DVI connectors.)

No screen activity on startup


hi wa_flyboy,

I suggest you first do a test to determine if it is your macbook's screen or graphics processor which is at fault. To do this you need to connect an external display to your macbook.

The macbook has a mini-DVI port for connection to external displays. Depending on the connector of the external display you use to do the test, you are either going to need a mini-DVI to DVI adapter (for a DVI display) or a mini-DVI to VGA adapter (for a VGA display). These adapters are sold separately by Apple, see http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wa/RSLID?nnmm=browse&mco=669DFFE0&node=home/shop_mac/mac_accessories/displays

If an image is displayed on the external display after you have connected it to your macbook, you know that the screen of your macbook is faulty. In this case it would be an economical option to take the macbook to a repair shop where a technician can determine the faulty component (either one of the following display components of a TFT LCD screen can fail over time; the inverter, the backlight or the cabling). These can be replaced under warranty or they can order new ones if the warranty has expired.

If the external display shows the same symptoms as your macbook's display, it is the macbook's graphics processor which is at fault. I'm sorry to inform you that I think this is the cause of your macbook's display problem. Replacing the graphics processor of your macbook entails replacing the motherboard.
If the macbook is still under warranty I suggest you replace it and let technicians migrate your data from your current macbook's hard disk to your new one.
If the warranty of your macbook has expired, it's a more economical option to buy a new one and migrate your data to the new macbook. This will only cost a few dollars more than the cost of replacing the faulty motherboard (including the service costs of the repair shop to which you take your macbook), but is still more economical seeing as how you get a new machine which has a full warranty.

I hope this is helpful information and thanks for using the FixYa services
Kind Regards
