Where do I find out what a blinking power light on a cinema display means?

Message #1 - Posted 2007/11/17 - Rowbotth

A year ago or so, I had problems with the output of my Apple cinema display, and learned that the sequence of the blinking is trying to diagnose the problem, if I am smart enough to understand it.

I am again getting a reduced output illumination, and the sequence is two fast blinks a long slower blink, and then a long dark time.

Can someone tell me where I can find out what this means, so I can figure out what I need to do in order to bring this back to life? (Well, full life, I guess.)

Thanks.

H.
