I recently purchased a Macbook Pro with Retina Display, along with a 27" Thunderbolt display. IT was working well until I noticed that it was no longer detecting the thunderbolt display. I suspect this is after the 10.8.2 upgrade.

 

When I plug a TB-to-Ethernet adapter in, I can see that the device is detected and everything is happy on both Thunderbolt ports on the laptop (using the system profiler tool).

 

When I plug in the TB display, it is not detected, the screen stays blank. Going to "detect displays" in the displays control panel does nothing. I have zapped PRAM, reset the SMC, etc. I have found all the software updates imaginable on the Apple web site (although it's possible I missed one). I found some ideas about deleting the windowserver.plist file, but to no avail.

 

I'm stumped and would love any further thoughts.
