Same problem here. MBP 2011 and 24" LED Cinema display. The display will flicker a few times before going black. I will unplug the cord from the monitor, plug it back in, and it will usually come back on. Sometimes it will do this at least 5 times in a span of 3 minutes. When unplugging the monitor doesn't work, I just have to power off the computer. I HATE THIS. Please fix it!!!

I'm having the same issue with MBA 13" (mid 2011) with 24" Led Cinema Display.
Please issue a firmware update!
Also have a MBA 11" (late 2010) and everything works fine!

Just installed latest thunderbolt update...seems to fix this issue. So far...
Currently Being ModeratedSep 23, 2011 3:19 PM (in response to TheVegan)
It actually doesn't, sorry....LED 24 still blinking. This is ridiculous, If I knew I would have never bought the thunderbolt laptop. Feels completely neglected by Apple.

I have the same problem here. MBP 2011 and 27" LED Cinema display. I never know if the screen will work when I connect my MBP. F-ing annoying. Sometimes it takes forever to get it to work.
APPLE PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!!

Yep, same issues here. We've recently bought 2 27" Thunderbolt displays to work with Mac Minis (2.5GHz i5) and BOTH displays are playing up. One blacks out randomly while being used, the only way to revive it being to disconnect the TB plug and reinsert it. This has happened a couple of times a week since we got it. The other has blacked out once or twice, but also suffers from the skew/noise the OP mentioned. It happens every now and then when dragging & dropping a file - momentary white noise across the screen while dragging files.
I REALLY don't want to take the displays back because we don't have suitabkle replacements, which means downtime.
Come on Cooky, get the elves on the job please!
