While using my apple studio 17" display for more than an hour, it sporatically flickers off and on and then cuts out completely. after shutting down and leaving off over nite, it does the same thing. seems to get worse the longer i use it. there is no pattern or specific length of time of using before this occurs. it's connected to a dual 1 GHz PowerPC G4. the display is approx 4 years old. it's been sitting on the same desk/plugged into the same outlets it's whole life, nothing has changed/been added etc.
any suggestions will be appreciated. thank you!
Well...it is still sitting here unusable! took it to the imac store and they said it could be fixed for a flat rate of $400 - but could buy a new one for that price...so to answer your question, i never got it fixed or figured out the problem! thanks for your reply though
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?

Please check it monitor color adjust button. If ok then you check it monitor cable if change possible then change it or power cable also proper connect. If not solved contact Good Monitor technician.
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!
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.
