    I picked up a second hand 23" ACD today with no power supply, it was inexpensive and I was told it was working but the power supply was lost.

    How can I find out of this works before spending ~180 bucks on a new power supply


    THANKS :cool:

    So you didn't even power it on before buying it used, good luck it works I wouldn't have done that unless it was like 100

    32 bucks, worth it as art, just a major ++ if it works

    Take it into an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. They may be willing to check if it powers on if they have a power supply. If it does, then thank them for their service and buy the power supply through them lol.

    I believe ADC monitors powered by the graphics card. You need an ADC to DVI adapter to power it. Most stores have thrown that stuff out by now it's more than 7 years old

    This 23" monitor sounds like the Aluminum one, not the older acrylic. The aluminum monitors had DVI out plus an external power supply. I think that's the one he's looking for.
