20 inch cinema display problem

I have an anoying problem with my screen and i need a solution. There are no green colors at all so the screen has a pinkish color. It all started when i had a problem with my G4 freezing. I took it to a repair place and they totally screwed me over. Basically switching out Everything-motherboard, ram, video card, hard drive. turned out being a problem with my hard drive. when I brought my computer home i had the color issue. Took the computer to another place and they say the problem is my video card. my display works on other computers. I tried everything in the settings with no luck. I dont know if the repair people changed some kind of setting or what or if they damaged my video card. I really dont want to buy another video card and have that turn out to not be the problem. Is there any other way to try and fix this problem. Help

One thing you might want to try adjusting is the gamma setting in Displays Preferences color calibration area. Macs typically are set at 1.8 but PCs will often use 2.2. That could account for the difference.

  • 27 inch cinema display windows 7 problems....

    my 27 inch cinema display will only display a resolution of 1920x1200 on my bootcamp partion (3.2) of my 2009 macbook pro with a 9600M GT graphics card?
    it displays the full resolution on the lion partition..
    i have installed the trackpad and the display update but still no luck?

    Did you install the latest driver from Nvidia though? sounds like you need to.

  • 32 inch Cinema Display turns off repeatedly?

    32 inch Cinema Display has taken to turning itself off afer 30 minutes operation.
    Can this fault be repaired or should I be looking at buying a new display?

    I have a 20" Cinema Display connected to an early 2008 MacPro. After years of service the monitor suddenly started going black, quite randomly. It would even happen part way through playing an edit from FCP. Strangely audio would be maintained though picture was lost. If I switched monitor power off and on again I would usually restore video image. Sometimes I had to do this power cycling repeatedly.
    Looking through other posts it seemed a failure of the internal power unit was the most likely cause of the problem. But replacement seemed risky and not guaranteed. I considered buying a new monitor (probably a Dell UltraSharp since the Apple monitors are now so expensive).
    Then I tried something else. In System Preferences and then Energy Saver I set the Computer Sleep slider to 25 minutes (I had always previously kept it on 15 minutes). Bingo! Problem solved.
    Maybe this won't work for everyone but it certainly saved me some cash outlay. For now.

  • What happened to the 30 inch Cinema display?

    What happened to the 30 inch Cinema display?
    I went into the Apple store to purchase one, all they had was the (too small) 27 inch with the ugly black border.
    I did find a few used 30 inch Cinema displays on ebay, they are over $1100 USED.
    Any suggestions, for a 30 inch display?

    No suggestions, apart from changing to a non-Apple display such as a LaCie one.
    I think Apple really makes a mistake with the new displays - they are nifty, granted, if you want to watch TV or the like, but they'll loose the professionals, working all day long with their displays.
    1. the new displays have an excellent resolution, no trouble there, but they are like mirrors, reflecting lamps, etc. and very tiring for the eyes. That's already a problem with my MacBook Pro but I've got to accept it - what else is there to do - and fortunately it's only my secondary system.
    2. we have gotten used to 30" and do not want to downgrade.
    I am a translator and need to work with technical plants and several open files, so 30" really helped facilitate work. And now that's all gone as the 27" display definitely is not up to scratch for day-long work...
    I ordered a 30" display right when it became available, so it's quite old now. I worry what I'll do when it breaks down ...

  • MBP3.1 can't run 30-inch cinema display

    I used my 30-inch Cinema Display on a G5 for quite awhile, but had to switch to my MacBook Pro when key apps like FC Pro required an Intel Mac. Since running it on my MBP 2.2 (Model A1226, introduced in 2007)/4 GB Ram/upgraded to 500GB drive I've had on-going problems with screen flickering, freezes and automatic rebooting.
    I've had  Apple replace the graphic display and the mother board twice, and the problem continues. Apple claims that the MBP can drive the display, but it doesn't look as if they're right. My laptop has none of the problems when disconnected from the display.
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    You don't say what connection adaptor you are using. See this Apple support post to see if it applies to you. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3571

  • Older 20-inch Cinema Display powering on and off repeatedly

    I recently inherited an older (clear) 20-inch Cinema Display that I'm trying to use with my G5 dual 2.3 running 10.4.8. After purchasing the expensive DVI to ADC adapter and hooking it up, everything worked fine for about maybe 20 minutes or so until the display started to cycle on and off every two or three seconds (off for a couple seconds, then on for a couple seconds, repeat endlessly). This is accompanied by the power button glowing on and then off so it seems as if the power is cycling on and off by itself.
    Any ideas? At first I suspected the ADC/DVI adapter which got really hot when in use, but letting it cool down had no effect on the monitor's behavior. My clunky old 19" CRT display works with no problems, so it's not the video card. The Cinema Display is my old monitor from work, and never had any performance issues, although it's been in storage for almost a year.
    PowerMac G5 Dual 2.3 GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    Same thing is happening to me. I have the 20" Cinema Display (clear with ADC).
    Last night I was in another room and all of a sudden I heard my G4 (Digital Audio) restart. I thought I was hearing things. Then about 3 minutes later I heard it again. I thought my daughter was up working on the computer or something. So I went up and there was no one around, but the computer kept restarting every 1 or two minutes. It was very strange – sometimes it it would go to sleep in the middle of the boot process.
    I was able to stop this process eventually by disabling the display power button in the Energy Saver and Displays prefs panels. But I would like this feature to be functional since it makes my setup easier to use for my kids.

  • My 24 inch cinema display stopped working

    My 24 inch cinema display just flickered and stopped working.  The power is still there, the sound is still their.  isight camera doesn't appear to be on, the screen is black.  My display window in settings still reconginizes another display, but the screen is just black.  I've tried all the normal trouble shootings, ie resetting the SMC, and PRAM, but no luck.  I have never had any problems with it at all.  Any help would be appreciated.

  • 20 Inch Cinema Display Went Black

    i just rebooted my mac mini that is connected to a 20 inch Cinema Display and the monitor never came back to life. The screen is totally black and the firewire, USB and video cables are plugged into the computer fine. When I look at the computer on Remote Desktop from my laptop i can see that the mac mini is fine. i can also see that when i hit the on/off button on the display that it prompts the shutdown/restart popup on the mac mini so it is communicating with the mac mini. i have also plugged the display into my PB and again I get the shutdown popup when i hit the display's on/off button. is there anything to do to bring it back to life or is it dead? its not even a year old.

    Same problem happening here, You described it exactly. Even the magenta box. Mine also happens most in the open windows, not when the desktop. I am trying to figure out when exactly it is happening. The third item I have issues with is that blocks of data are 'stuck' in a genie expansion like motion so it is blurred and dot displaying in that 3x3 inch square section. Could have something to do with refreshing? Sometimes I notice the window will fix if I manually resize the window.
    Hope this helps any one who is trying to help us out.

  • 2004 Cinema Display Problems

    I recently acquired a 30 Inch Cinema Display that was having some screen issues. After first hooking up the monitor to my MacBook Pro laptop, it worked great for about 10 minutes and then I noticed the screen showing burn marks on the right side and sometimes the screen will go white, OR it will try to display the image, but show color bars. I kept turning the monitor off and on, and it eventually works again.
    My question is, is there an easy way to fix this problem or anything I can do on my own without taking it to Apple? Does this problem occur frequently? I have tried searching these issues online and not really finding any reliable answers. PLEASE HELP!

    that's a bummer that there is no easy fix for this issue. It's frustrating because the monitor works some of the time, and then the color bars appear. Also, it seems like this problem occurs a lot but there is no easy fix. Even Apple said they didn't know why it was doing that.
    Anyone else ever have this problem? Is this common?

  • 24-inch Cinema Display and Mid-2010 Macbook Pro - Cinema Display still flickers after updates

    I currently have a 15-inch Macbook Pro (mid 2010) hooked up to my 24-inch Cinema Display.  I have updated all the firmware for both the Cinema Display and the Macbook Pro but still get intermittent flickering.  Moreover, I have cleared the PRAM and VRAM.  I have done ever possible update I can find, the system is fully functioning.  Help?

    I am having this exact same problem.  2010 iMac with NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256MB.  I have it hooked to a 30" display through a DisplayPort to DVI-D adapter.  The 30" is fine, but I have graphical corruption constantly on the main iMac screen.
    This all started as soon as I updated to Yosemite a couple days ago.

  • Is it possible to attach Samsung Monitor to the 27 inch Cinema Display?

    I have an Apple 27 inch Cinema Display and I also have a Samsung 27 inch monitor.
    I would like to know if it's possible to create a dual monitor setup by connecting the Samsung monitor (dvi or hdmi) with an adapter to the Cinema Display's mini display port on the back?
    Does anyone know if this is possible? Or does it only work with another Cinema Display?
    I'd appreciate any help received.

    Is it possible to connect the PC to the Samsung monitor via Dual link DVI and to the Apple Cinema Display via mini display port and work as a dual monitor setup?
    That should work if the PC has both DisplayPort and dual-link DVI (or two DisplayPorts).
    I'm thinking the best solution for MacBook Air is to purchase a Thundebolt display and hook that up to the Cinema Display and I think then I would have a dual screen setup at full resolution.
    That will work if you connect a Thunderbolt disk drive (with two Thunderbolt ports) between the Thunderbolt display and the Mini DisplayPort display.
    But currently I don't think there is a way to connect a PC to a Thunderbolt Display.
    Not unless the PC has Thunderbolt.

  • Random screen blackout 2009 24 inch Cinema Display... HELP.

    Random screen blackouts with 24 inch Cinema Display (purchased 2009). Never used with anything but same Macbook Pro (2009). No hardware changes on MBP. Just started June 6, 2012. Super annoying. Anyone else having this issue? Recommendations?

    Hello, Ertjie.
    The link titled Download the 24-inch LED Cinema Display Update from the kb/TS4045 article worked for me when I tried it today.  Click the "Download" link I post here or try the one in the kb article again.  Perhaps it will work for you now?
    However, I note that the kb article expressly states that this firmware update: 
    ...is only intended for use with and will only install on the Apple 24-inch LED Cinema Display while the display is connected to a Thunderbolt-enabled Mac. (EZ Jim emphasis added)
    If your Mac is really using Mac OS X (10.6.8)  as shown in your initial topic posting, your Mac may not be Thunderbolt-enabled.   If so, contact Apple or your Apple-Authorized Service Provider for help.

  • My 30-inch cinema display often doesn't come on at startup and I have to disconnect it and reconnect to work.

    I have a 30-inch cinema display connected to a Mac Mini.  When I first boot up the computer after having it shut down for a couple of days, the display screen does not illuminate about half the time.  If I disconnect the display from the power brick and then reconnect it usually comes on, although sometimes I have to do that more than once.  It works fine once it on and displaying.  Anyone else seeing this?

    Hi Rocky Rakoon,
    Thank you for your post, and welcome to the Apple Support Communities.
    I understand that your Apple Cinema Display is not turning on upon startup. I'd like to reset the following, as it may resolve your issue:
    Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)
    You may also want to reset your computer's PRAM:
    OS X Mountain Lion: Reset your computer’s PRAM
    Note: Resetting PRAM may change some system settings and preferences. Use System Preferences to restore your settings.

    If the display has a DVI connector it will plug into the Mac Pro directly.  If it uses ADC (Apple Display Connector)
    you will need a DVI to ADC adapter
