If you're referring to the DVI to ADC adapter (A1006), then the answer is no, not without modifying the adapter. Probably better to sell the DVI to ADC adapter (they're somewhat sought after) and buy the correct power adapter for the A1082.Could I use my ADC powerblock from my old monitor on it? Otherwise Ill just fine one on ebay I guess.
Thanks for sharing bunn. This certainly sounds like my kind of solutionThe proper power adapters for the aluminum cinema displays are often more expensive than the displays themselves.
I have a couple running on 24V LED lighting transformers from Ebay that were $10-20 each. This includes the pair of A1082s on the MP 1,1 in my office.
Cutting the proprietary Apple plug off the end of the wire harness will reveal 3 wires-a positive and negative(I've seen different colors used) and then a skinny gray one. The gray one can be left alone.
Personally, I believe the price on these PSUs are artificially high. Like anything else, people discovered that the Aluminum Cinema Displays won't work without one of these and that alternatives aren't an easy option for average people.Thanks for sharing bunn. This certainly sounds like my kind of solution
I have seen various cinema displays going for cheap on the bay without their original PSU’s which turned me off the idea of purchasing... but now.. maybe I should
I've seen the price drop on those though. Used to be you could never find one for less than $100. When the price dropped to $50 one time I got two.
