Currently Being ModeratedDec 30, 2010 1:53 PM (in response to Karen K)I just talked to the apple store and found out that the 30" is a discontinued monitor. So they no longer carry the power supply.MacPro 2x3GHz Quad-Core 16GB Ram ATIRadionX1900 4X750HD Raid065-0288card, Mac OS X (10.5.1), ipod 80g video/ G5 dual 2.5 GHz Power PC/

Search for some of these (or all) words:
30" Apple Cinema Display Power Adapter 150W - A1098
A1098 is the Apple part number.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 30, 2010 2:37 PM (in response to sgginc)Thank you! I followed another lead and found a new one from DV Warehouse. Fingers are crossed that this is the solution. I'll let you all know how it resolves.

I'm in the same boat, think my power supply suffered water damage due to a fire in my building last week and I'm hoping all it is is the power supply and nothing more....
eeeek, not happy....
good luck!!!PowerMac G5 quad 2.5, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 8, 2011 6:20 AM (in response to Karen K)I had the same problem with my 30" ACD connected to my 15" MBP. After a lot of fiddling (and buying a new power supply) I discovered that if I unplug the USB and FireWire connectors leading from the ACD to the MBP (but leave the display port connector attached) then the ACD wakes up. If I wait a few minutes I can then reattach the USB and FireWire connectors and everything is fine until the next time I power down / up and I have to repeat the cycle. This is consistent behaviour.
I hope this helps.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Thanks for this tip! My 30 inch ACD was doing the same thing and unplugging the USB/Firewire helped.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 8, 2011 9:35 AM (in response to RedHatDude)I had a similar problem with my ACD. I had to stop using the USB port all together. The monitor would shut off with no provocation. Apple support was really unhelpful. I called three times while it was under warranty. They had me do the usual computer fixes like rebooting PRAM.
Turns out it was Power Adapter. Picked up a new one from http://www.sunsetmac.com/apple-power-adapter-apple-cinema-displays-c-65_128/appl e-30-cinema-display-power-adapter-150w-a1098-661-3356-new-p-183.
The guy there told me they sell 30 a week. Apparently they burn out like light bulbs. If you leave your monitor on all the time the adapter will need to be replaced occasionally.2 x 2.8 Quad-core Xeon and others, Mac OS X (10.6)

Excellent response and solution....worked immediately on my Apple 30" Cinema Display....this seems to happen whenever I power the system completely down for a longer period of time....like overnight
