The camera and audio use the USB connection. The video uses Mini DisplayPort. Make sure the Mini DiplayPort plug is the right way round and is pushed all the way in (no metal showing). It can take some force. If it still doesn't work, the computer graphics may have failed. Take it to the store and try it with another display.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Yep, its pushed in all the way alright, still no detection from my MBP.
Computer graphics may have failed? Will that be a hardware or software problem?
Would updating my OS fix that? Preferably i wouldn't wanna upgrade lol

Alright, ill try both.
But if it really is the computer graphics that have failed, what kind of repair would it need?
And, any clue as to why or how this happened? I've read of this 'MBP wont detect display' issues, some users end up resorting to spending more $$$ to fix it. Some never found a solution at all.
it seems like a pretty common problem that people face with Displays, what causes these failures??
i mean isn't it expected of users to plug and unplug the cinema display frequently?
Thanks alot Malcolm for your replies and suggestions.

The connector is designed for frequent use. Many users bring their computers to work each day and connect to large displays there. If you're lucky it might just be some debris in the connector, but it might involve replacing the logic board, which is expensive.
You can't tell how common a problem it is just from posts here. If you search for the problem you will find 100% of the results have the problem.

You're right, thanks for the explanation.
I'm not so sure about luck anymore as i have tried both SMC & PRAM resets and nothing changed.
My MBP still can't detect the display.
Is there anything else i can do? Or to the Apple store i should go?
Dang, this *****.
