    Dead 17" Studio Display
    After less than 18 months use, my 17" Studio Display monitor abruptly ceased working. I had been using it with a G5 PowerMac, with a DVI to ADC converter, though it does not appear that the computer is implicated in any way. Once the lights went out, I have gotten no indication at all from the monitor. In other words, in spite of the usual shifting around of power outlets, etc., I get no light no where when I push the power "button," including on that button itself. In 22 years of working with computers I have never had this happen. Any suggestions other than throwing it out?

    Take it to the store and ask them what the problem is. If it's something minor, maybe you can fix it yourself for a few bucks.

    Could it still be under warranty from the manufacturer?

    Thumbs down No more warranty
    The warranty has surely expired, as I had purchased the thing a couple of years before putting it into use. I had thought to use it with an older Mac that had been sitting around, but in the end did not put it into service until I got my G5 at the end of 2005.

    I know it is not under warranty but they might give you a free estimate. Figure out what's wrong and decide what to do with it then.
    Or send it to me. I like free stuff to tinker with.
