    Hey guys just wondering if anyone had any thoughts .. I am currently watching an ebay auctions for an Apple Display that will not power up, I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with this... how much a possible fix could cost from apple... or if I could pick up the right parts and due it myself... skills permitting... the seller states that he did try another power supply...but that didnt work.. thanks for any thoughts...

    If it is not the power supply, and is the board or something, I would let it go unless you are up for a challenge...

    The power supply is usually what goes first, and if that has been ruled out, most of the other options are not very attractive.
