Repair aluminum cinema display

Recommended Posts

I have a 30" vintage 2006-2007 apple aluminum cinema display on which backlight brightness won't adjust and which shows flickering. Apple wants $499 minimum to send it our for repair. Does anyone know a third party repair source that might be less expensive but up to the task. I suspect that at worst the problem would be a monitor logic board replacement, although it could be a lesser backlight power or control component.

the Moniserve guys are where you should start.

 

 

you could always track down the parts for a DIY fix. but the Cinema displays are really complicated to take apart. read all about it before you decide to go all in.

You might just try a new power supply. I have a 23" and it went bad. Can't remember all the symptoms but found out the power supplies did tend to fail first. I went ahead and bought a supply for a 30" off eBay and that gives me a little extra head room on current. Has worked great since.
