  • Hi EHOLT90, I've had the same problem with mine, but loosening on of the screws on the back just a tiny bit (one of the 2 middle ones out of the four on the back) solved the problem and it has now been silent for months. Shame that didn't work…

  • Hi slughead, Have you tried setting the source text and song text to large in the iTunes preferences? That should work nicely, unless your screen is REALLY FUZZY Hope this helps.
  • Why is it that people call others names so easily just because they haven't got a clue about the Apple product line themselves? The cinema displays can be used nicely with the magnetic mount because Apple has included a ferromagnetic metal strip…
