Dell U2410 calibration problem
Aug 8, 2010

Hi All,

I just purchased a Dell U2410 and am having color managment issues.

Symptoms are...

With the default settings, no calibration profile applied, I get a slight red/pinkish cast to the screen, i.e.greys appear slightly pink.

After calibrating with a Spider3 Elite the color cast becomes extreme, i.e. greys are now very red/pink.

The only way I can get greys to be grey is to drop the red gain in the monitors adjustments menu down but any attempt to calibrate it with this adjustment still results in bad red/pink color cast.

Also, I calibrated a 3 year old cheap 22" LG monitor on the same PC using the same procedure and it now has good colours so I don't think it's software or puck related.

Before I give up and send the monitor back as defective I thought I'd see if anybody else had experienced this and that I'm not doing something dumb.

Thanks,
Paul.
