I'm trying to connect my 23" Cinema display to my iMac, need help with connector cable.

I'm trying to connect my 23" Cinema Display monitor to my iMac. The adaptor cable I ordered came with a female, I need a male adaptor. Any ideas where I might find one? I purchased the BlueRigger Mini Displayport Male to DVI Female Adapter Cable.

I have the 23" aluminum Cinema Display. I just can't seem to find the right adaptor for the monitor femal plug on the backside. I've tried a Bluerigger but it was a female adaptor. I believe I need a male.

  • I'm trying to connect my 30" Cinema Display to my new Mac Pro along with a new Apple 23'" monitor.  The new Apple monitor is fine.  On the cinema monitor everything is blown up pretty large.  Any ideas on how to solve this?

    The 30" display needs a DUAL-LINK adapter.

    Hi Gilly,
    I have no proof, but I think it will not work with an adapter, only Mini Display Port or Thunderbolt.

    How to connect old LED Cinema Display (Mini DisplayPort) 
    to new iMac (thunderbolt port)?
    Ideas?

    Just plug it into the Thunderbolt port. That port directly supports mini-DisplayPort screens.

  • Problem connecting a 24" Cinema Display to an Imac 27"

    My friend has an Imac 27 "with a graphics card AMD HD 6970M 1GB. She wanted to connect an external Cinema Display 24" (without thunderbolt serie). The external display has started to display black screen intermittently while making a strange noise. Before this screen, there was a aluminum  Cinema Display 20 " which never had any problem. The 24" Cinema Display was just before used as external screen for a Mac Book Pro 15" (main screen, no dual screen) without problem too.  Any idea? Is the card too weak for such a configuration?The iMac was purchased on October 15th on the refurb. The Os is Lion 10.7.2.

    If the computer doesn't have a Mini DIsplayPort or DisplayPort, not until September; click here for more information. If you mean the MagSafe connector, leave it unplugged; it's only for laptops.

  • How to connect a apple cinema display to an imac

    I have a brand new 27 inch iMac. I also own a 30 inch  Apple Cinema Display.  What peripheral adaptor do I need to connect the display to my new iMac?

    Hello,
    Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPort-> Dual Link DVi cable...
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A/mini-displayport-to-dual-link-dvi-ada pter
    A notable peculiarity of Thunderbolt is that it uses exactly the same connector as Mini Display Port, and that's not all. The Thunderbolt connector also carries Mini Display Port video signals. That means you can plug a Mini Display Port video cable/adapter in to a Thunderbolt connector and your monitor will work.

  • My apple TV WHEN CONNECTED TO THE TV DISPLAYS A PICTURE OF THE BOX WITH A CABLE (USB) ATTACHED TO ITUNES SYMBOL.tHE WHITE LIGHT ON THE FRONT OF THE BOX IS FLASHING RAPIDLY. IS THIS WHAT IS DESCRIBED AS BEING BOXED? IS THE WAY TO FIX THIS TO RELOAD

    My Apple TV white light on the front of the box flashes continously.There is no response from the remote.
    On the TV there is a picture of an appleTV box with a USB cable and an I-Tunes logo.
    I do not have a micro usb cable.Is the only route to fixing this problem to download syestem software via my PC
    and I-Tunes?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    If your problem persists get yourself a micro USB cable (sold separately), you can restore your Apple TV from iTunes:
    Remove ALL cables from Apple TV. (if you don't you will not see Apple TV in the iTunes Source list)
    Connect the micro USB cable to the Apple TV and to your computer.
    Reconnect the power cable (only for Apple TV 3)
    Open iTunes.
    Select your Apple TV in the Devices list, and then click Restore.
    (You may already have a micro USB cable if you have a camera or other digital device)

  • How to connect a 23" Cinema display and mac mini to an AV Receiver?

    I am trying to get my 23" Cinema display and Mac Mini to a Yamaha RX-2700 AV Receiver. I am on first name terms with the guy in Maplins because I tried to get an Xbox 360 working with this display before and gave up in the end.  The AV receiver has upscaling capability so I thought I'd try again.  I tried connecting a HDMI - DVI adapter to the HDMI Out on the receiver and a HMDI to DVI cable from the Mac Mini to the HDMI in with a optical cable for the sound.  The sound works fine but I get no display - the LED on the monitor flashes three times with a blank screen so it can't read the signal.  Another option suggested was to use a VGA Converter connected to a VGA - HDMI cable but I would like to find out if that would work before going down that route?
    I am looking for some advice about whether this type of configuation is possible with the 23" ACD and if so what do I need to buy to make it work?  I love the quality of my ACD to avoid having to replace it with a TV to get my multi media life in order.
    Many thanks

  • Headphone Jack Doesn't work in XP Connected to 24" Cinema Display

    I am trying to get audio out of my headphone jack when connected to my cinema display and booted into XP (OSX works fine). The audio always routes through the display speakers when booted into Windows XP, even when I plug headphones into my macbook pro's headphone jack. What settings or drivers do I need to enable my headphone jack to work in XP when I have my cinema display connected?

    I have the same problem too, but using Windows 7 and Boot Camp V3.1. Headphones work fine if I don't plug in the USB from the Display to the computer.
    Additionally, right after installing Windows 7, my Macbook Pro set the audio headset jack to 'optical audio' (with the glowing red LED), which I had to disable manually to get the headphones to work.
    To Nick4597, for me, the headphone issue wasn't there in XP, just Win7. Maybe the latest Boot Camp drivers disabled the feature?

  • I'm about to buy a 27" i-Mac. I would like to connect my 30" Cinema Display to it as a second monitor. What will I need to do that? Will this slow down the overal performance?

    I'm about to buy a 27" i-Mac. I would like to connect my 30" Cinema Display to it as a second monitor. What will I need to do that? Will this slow down the overall performance?

    The new iMacs do not come with a MiniDisplayPort, they have Thunderbolt, so unless you are talking about purchasing one of the previous generation iMacs such as this refurbished model in the online Apple store, it won't work. And yes, if you are going to get the full range of video resolutions you will need the Dual-Link version.
    For details see the store's web page on the Dual-Link display adapter.

  • Can I connect a 24" Cinema Display with mini DisplayPort in to HDMI out?

    I have a 24" LED Cinema Display that I want to use with a new 15" Retina MacBook Pro I will soon be purchasing. Using cable adaptors, would it be possible use the new Macbook Pro's HDMI port to connect to this Cinema Display? I understand that this does not work with the newer Thunderbolt displays because Thunderbolt only adapts in one direction, but since this is an older Mini Displayport monitor would it work? My goal is to keep both Thunderbolt ports available for storage I/O untill Apple releases an update to the Thunderbolt display later this or next year. Thanks for your advice!

    Yes, in this scenario, I'd connect the display to one of the Thunderbolt ports and use a USB hub for additional I/O. Here's my current I/O needs:
    1) esata (with port multiplication)
    2) gigabit ethernet
    3) firewire 800
    4) USB keyboard
    5) 3-port USB hub (iOS, bluetooth charger, misc USB2 or 3)
    6) monitor
    My current plan is to use
    1) thunderbolt 1 - display
    2) thunderbolt 2 - firewire 800
    3) USB3 1 - esata
    4) USB3 2 - USB3 hub - gigbit ethernet and all other USB devices
    Does this seem like a resaonable set-up in terms of maxing I/O bandwidth? My main concern is if the USB2 devices on the USB3 hub will throttledown my gigabit ethernet speeds.
    Thanks for your advice!

  • I need to connect my LED cinema display to nvidia quadro 4000 graphics card

    I cant find any adapter to connect my "LED cinema display" to the brand new graphics card "nvidia quadro 4000 (for Mac pro)"
    As i coldnt find any information since now, ihope someone can give me a hint.

    They included the wrong DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort adapter.  The correct adapter should have a female Mini DisplayPort connector, not male.  You could buy the correct adapter or you could add a F-F Mini DisplayPort coupler

    Try calling the, and asking for the correct adapter.  They fo say:
    "Connect to mini-DisplayPort displays through the included adapter cable"
