View Full Version : Apple CRT display and power

Sep 7, 2004, 02:48 PM
I have an older Apple Studio Display 17in CRT with a VGA connector and a power plug that fits into the power receptacle on the back of our older PowerMac G4 (450MHz) designed for the monitor. I now want to use this display with a PowerMac G4 Quicksilver that has a VGA port but no power receptacle on the back except for the one for the computer's power. Since the monitor's power cord won't fit into a wall plug, is there any way to get power to the monitor through the new computer or with an adapter of some kind, or am I out of luck?

Thanks for any help!

It's a standard cable for printers, faxes, monitors, an old computer, etc.

You probably have one sitting around your house, or can buy one quite easy.

And the old G4 has a power cord that you should be able to use on your monitor. ;)

Otherwise search for 'AC Power Replacement Cable'
