A power outage knocked out my 30 inch Apple cinema display.    It just sits blank now and the little light flashes 3 times. (1 short and one long blink in quick succession, followed by 1 more short blink)  The whole process including the blinking repeats itself over about every 7 seconds....  Is my display savable or is it destined for the tip?...

    Hey Sean,


    Exact same story here!


    Had a power outage (even though I have an APS) and now my 30 Inch ACD just blinks. I got a chance to test out the power supply on another 30 inch ACD and it is fine.


    People on forums mention blocking the middle pin, but they all seem to be doing that with success on the 23inch version. Haven't heard yet of anyone being successful with it on the 30 inch....
