Hardware or Software?

Dec 6, 2011 5:01 PM

Have a 30" Cinema Display... my Adobe CS5 apps all of a sudden started having difficulties displaying 20% or lower screens of black. A 20% of black on screen looks like a 10% screen and when exported to PDF, all but disappears. Non-Adobe apps (Freeway Pro, i.e.,) started behaving the same way.

 

 

Any ideas appreciated. Puleeze don't tell me I need a new monitor!

 

 

gasp, groan (maybe)

    Could be a bad video card or even a bad cable.

    Have you tried another cable?  I once thought I had stuffed a nice 24" Dell Ultrasharp when it had a similar problem after shifting it, but one of the pins in one end of the DVI cable was bent.  One tweak with some pliers later it was all fixed.
