Photoshop issues with MBR and LED Cinema Display

I have my MBR 15" connected to a 24" LED Cinema Display. In Photoshop, when dragging windows to the secondary display (the Cinema Display) they turn immediately black. If I drag them back to the main monitor (the MBR) they will show up normally.
Now, if I change the main and secondary displays (1st-CD; 2nd-MBR), this will happen again on the secondary.
I really need to have both displays working with Photoshop. Does anyone know a workaround to this? 
Thanks in advance,

Sorry, forgot about that. It's Photoshop CS6, already updated to be Retina capable (version 13.0.2).
I'm going to check for further updates.

  • Adjusting brightness with two 24" LED Cinema Displays

    I'm wondering if there are any other Mac Pro users out there with two 24" LED Cinema Displays? If so, are you able to adjust the brightness of both displays? For me, no matter which brightness slider I adjust in System Preferences, only the brightness of one of the displays is adjusted.
    I originally created a thread last September:
    If you have this problem too, please report it to <>. My original Radar bug was #7222745, and it was found to be a duplicate of #6828443. Based on the IDs, I'd say this has been a known issue for at least a year.

    I filed a bug report at, and received a pretty quick reply:
    This is a follow up to Bug ID# 7222745. After further investigation it has been determined that this is a known issue, which is currently being investigated by engineering. This issue has been filed in our bug database under the original Bug ID# 6828443. The original bug number being used to track this duplicate issue can be found in the State column, in this format: Duplicate/OrigBug#.
    Looks like I'm S.O.L. until they fix this!

  • Will my MBA work with the new LED Cinema Display

    I have a first generation MBA, model identifier MBA 1.1, and want to know if my mini display adapter will work with the new LED Cinema Display. I believe I have a micro-DVI that is different from the new MacBooks and MacBook Professional models that have a new Mini DisplayPort. If anyone is using this old MBA to new LED Cinema Display combination please let me know.

    The new display isn't shipping from Apple until some time in November so the only direct feedback you'll get is from anyone that's been to the store and played with the demo unit.
    With that being said, it would appear (based on the system specs and requirements, posted on the site) that the new display requires the new adapter type that's found only on the new MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

  • My macbook is back from repairs. It is not working with my apple led cinema display. It was working prior to the repairs on the laptop. Is there a setting I don't know about that might have been changed?

    My macbook pro is just back from repairs.  It is not working with my apple led cinema display. I have followed the directions in the cinema display manual.  am I missing something?

    Take a look at the Displays preference panel to see if everything is ok, particularly the resolution and refresh rate.  Displays will probably try to put the panel for the ACD on the ACD where you won't see it.  So click "Gather Windows" to get the ACD panel on to your macbook.
    One more thing, make sure you fully seated the mini displayport plug.  They can be sneaky little devils in that they need to be fully pushed in.

  • Problem with Snow Leopard and LED Cinema Display + MacBook pro

    I just upgraded to Snow Leopard. When I work on my MacBook Pro everything works fine. But when I use through the LED Cinema Display then the machine hangs on several programs, like iTunes, Time Machine, even Finder. Before the upgrade everything worked fine. Anyone having the same problem?

    I've had similar problems when using my cinema display. I am currently using it with my usb backup drive disconnected and , so far, have not had the problems. Here's hoping, although it is not a good permanent solution, it means I do not have Time Machine running or access to my other backup files. I suspect that it may be a problem (as reported by others on this forum) with SL mounting a sleeping drive. Time will tell.

  • Screen resolution problem - HP computer and LED Cinema Display

    I just purchased an HP Envy Phoenix H9-1330 with Windows 8, and I connected it to my 27" Mac LED Cinema Display, but the resolution is horrible. The highest option in the screen resolution menu is 1280 x 720, and I'm getting the error message "Your resolution is lower than 1024 x 768. Some items might not fit and apps might not open". How do I fix this? What kind of issue is this (Windows 8? Graphics card? HP can't support my monitor? etc...)?
    I just bought another brand new computer, but not an HP, with Windows 8 and I have no problems with the resolution - it looks absolutely beautiful. I want to use my monitor with my HP desktop though.
    Thanks for any help

    Still haven't figured it out....
    BUT I did notice that, on the back of the computer, there are 2 additional DVI connections that are covered with a black cover and screwed in (and they say 'please do not remove'.... I'm asuming it's because they aren't connected to anything? Or maybe they aren't connected to the graphics card?). Is it possible that just my DVI connection is wrong, and I'll need to connect to one of these covered-up DVI inputs instead? But why are they covered up? Do I need to take it in so they can be connected to the graphics card?? Help! I don't want to return this computer, but I will have to if I can't get the resolution fixed.

  • MBP with New Apple LED Cinema Display

    Does anyone know whether it will be possible to use an early-2008 MacBook Pro with the new Apple LED Cinema Display? I know that the new display is made specifically for the latest MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air with the mini-display port, but I wondered whether there will be some type of adapter offered so that an older MacBook Pro may be used with the new display (or whether this is even possible).
    Any input is appreciated.

    No solution yet, but read the following: displayport-dvi/

  • New Mac Pro and LED cinema display

    Sorry if this has been asked before, I tried searching for it but none of the topics answered my question specifically enough.
    I have a 24" Apple LED Cinema Display purchased less than a year ago. Will it connect to a new Mac Pro and what happens to the power cable that's attached to the LED display?

    I have a 24" Apple LED Cinema Display purchased less than a year ago. Will it connect to a new Mac Pro
    Yes. All the standard cards that come in the Mac Pro have one Mini DisplayPort. The 24"LED display will plug into that.
    and what happens to the power cable that's attached to the LED display?
    It is not used if you don't have a MacBook.

  • MBP and LED Cinema Display Color Washed Out After Screen Saver

    When coming out of screen saver, often the color profile on either my LED Cinema Display or the MBP LCD is messed up. The color looks washed out. Simply going to the Color tab in the Displays preference pane fixes this.
    How do I get this to stop?

    My 13" MBP has now started to do the same thing as described. The thing is, it has never done this since I bought it in late July 2009. I have iWork installed, Firefox, Skype, and Pixelmator. I may have a clue, however, for the Apple people: my MBP never did this until last night and this morning. The only thing I changed yesterday was removing the 2 gig of memory and installing 4 gig. I also tried the translation widget for the first time.

  • Macbook Air, Firewire and LED Cinema display

    I want to connect my Saffire Pro 40 (firewire) to my Macbook Air (thunderbolt), but i am unsure
    what to do.
    I could connect the newly released firewire thunderbolt adapter to the macbook air, but then i
    wouldn't be able to connect my LED Cinema Display as the only is one Mini-display port.
    Anyone has any tips?
    Best regards...Jan

    No cheap solution here. The Thunderbolt Display is what you need.
    The Matrox DS1 Thunderbolt docking station is missing the Firewire Port.

  • Using mac mini with late 2008 LED Cinema DIsplay

    Have the mac mini, 2.5 ghz. There is one Thunderbolt port, I am using that to use my 2008 (late) Apple Cinema LED Display. This display is supposed to be for the macbook pro, but I am using it on the mini...the power magnet cord is just dangling there and I plugged in the usb and the display cable into the thunderbolt (TB). Since I used the one TB port for the display, how can I hook up future drives, etc? Can't find a TB hub, maybe they will come someday too?
    Question, is there any problem using this display on a mini and just not use the power connector?
    - Kevin

    It can be done the problem is the hdmi port does not support the full native 27" resolution. It will go up to 1920x1200. Even then you need a converter.
    You could also use a displayport splitter.
    And this one only seems to support 24" cinema displays.

  • What exactly is the issue with CS5 and the retina display?

    Just picked up a late 2013 MBP with retina display and have PS CS5 running on it.
    What is the exact issue that I should be having when it comes to running CS5 on these machines ?  Is it just that the UI looks fuzzy?  Other than that it seems to run fine and my photos look fine also.

    What issue?"
    That is what I am asking...Like I said, I am able to open CS5 on my new retina mbp and edit image files with no issue..the only thing that I notice that seems off is the text of the UI seems "fuzzy"....
    So, what I am asking is what exactly is the problem supposed to be that I should be seeing?

  • 24" LED Cinema Display not working on new MacPro with GT120 graphics card

    Dear All,
    I have recently purchased a new Mac Pro Quad (2.66 GHz, 6mb DDR3 1066 MHz RAM) with a 24" LED Cinema Display. When powering up the computer for the first time, the display was blank. I swapped it out with a 23" Cinema HD Display, and it worked fine, so I thought it might be the LED Cinema Display itself. However, when I tested the LED Cinema Display on my MacBook (Model 5,1; INTEL Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz), it worked like a charm.
    Has anybody seen this behaviour? I'm assuming that it's a software issue (since the GT120 DVI adaptor works with the Cinema HD Display, so the mDVI adaptor should be good). [I also rebooted and wiped the PRAM and NVRAM, to no avail.]
    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply--I've done that before, for sure.
    An odd thing did happen when I reset the PRAM & NVRAM a second time--it worked. Maybe I did it wrong the first time? Anyway, it's working perfectly now. Many thanks.

  • Horizontal shifting bars on MBP 15 after disconnecting 24" LED cinema display and waking up from clamshell mode.

    I use my MBP 15 (late 2011) with 24" Apple LED Cinema display in a clamshell mode. After disconnecting external display, and opening display, it shows horizontal shifted bars, so it becomes completely unusable. Have to hard reset laptop. Any hints on how to resolve this? Thanks.

    Ok, more information for anyone that might care. The wake-up seems to be the familiar dark wake in order to go into hibernate mode. Except now, it's a death wake. Looking at the logs, I see that it happens exactly 70 minutes after sleeping, even though hibernatemode = 0 (which shouldn't hibernate at all!)
    So my power settings look like this:
    Currently in use:
    standbydelay         4200
    standby              1
    halfdim              1
    hibernatefile        /var/vm/sleepimage
    darkwakes            0
    gpuswitch            2
    disksleep            10
    sleep                10
    autopoweroffdelay    14400
    hibernatemode        0
    autopoweroff         1
    ttyskeepawake        1
    displaysleep         2
    acwake               0
    lidwake              1
    standbymode is 70 minutes, what a coincidence. I'm going to try setting it to 0 and see what that does.
