And btw, I had Apple Thunderbolt Display. After 2 years it died on me. Sometimes it would turn on, sometimes it wouldn't. Upgrading firmware, smc reset, x more things and it finally died on me. You have a long thread about this issue on apple forums. Lots of people with exact same situation I was in. Do you think Apple reacted to this? Of course not.
How to reset NVRAM
Will I ever buy Apple monitor again? I payed premium expecting a premium product and a premium support. Got neither. Glossy screen with large bezels that was pretty expensive couldn't last me 2 years.
macOS: Finding the Hidden Advanced Display Preferences - The Mac Observer
With so many great monitors out there that support thunderbolt 2, and so many coming out that will support thunderbolt 3, I really see no reason in waiting and finally purchasing a monitor from Apple. Not with their past record. And besides, they aren't interested anymore in monitors or pro users.
They have their iToys to play with now: What a ridiculous article this is. It doesn't even actually include the one thing suggested by the title: How can these guys expect us to take them seriously? They are either engaging in blatant click-baiting or they don't understand the difference between resetting a display and resetting the computer that is connected to the display.
Either way, MacRumors should be embarrassed by this post.
The only thing that is sad is how many people are bashing an article designed to help users. How very pathetic. Does it make people feel "good" about themselves to always want to bash and hate? The article explains exactly how to reset the display and I even quoted it to you in post 32 above. And that is exactly what the title says the article is about. I honestly don't see what your issue is here.
If the article does not interest you, you could just skip it. I have owned a TBD since March and did not know how to reset, so the article was of interest to me.

I was playing around with the resolution settings not very smart in hindsight and managed to select a resolution that my TV does not support. I do not have another monitor or Macbook. Is there anything I can do to reset the resolution settings?

I tried to reset the PRAM, but that didnt seem to solve the problem. I also tried starting in Safe mode but that didnt do the trick either. Appreciate your help! More Less. All replies Drop Down menu.
Mac MIni Display Resetting
Loading page content. Apple Pay Speciality level out of ten: You will almost have to have a different display. Another Mac will not help unless you by chance turned on Screen Sharing on the Mac mini. It is off by default. Perhaps connecting to the other display will reset the mini to read the display and set the manufacturers default resolution, then you could switch back to your TV and hopefully the mini would again default to the manufacturer's default resolution like the first time that you connected the LCD TV to the mini.

I would then need blind select another resolution with the keyboard? Does anyone know if it is possible to change the resolution by just using the keyboard?
Shut down your computer by holding down the power button. Restart your computer, and immediately after you hear the startup tone, press and hold the Shift key.
Don't press the Shift key before you hear the startup tone. Release the Shift key when you see the progress indicator below the gray Apple icon. Startup may take a bit longer than usual. Your displays should begin working correctly. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
Click the Displays preference pane. Select a resolution and refresh rate that is supported by the display. Restart your computer.
