Trying to calibrate the Dell 2209WA
Aug 11, 2010

Hi everyone,

I just recently received my Dell 2209WA from my relative in HK~ It's a really nice monitor! But I just started to notice that the screen carry a bit of a green tinge to it. I'm comparing the screen with my iPad screen (should I be doing that?), and the Dell seem to have trouble getting some colours right. For example, at a forum that I go to, my old Samsung (not calibrated) had no trouble displaying a pale yellow, it matched the iPad pretty close. But the Dell display the yellow as a greenish tint....

What can I do to solve this problem? Will a calibrator help? I played around with the custom RGB setting, and tried to match it to the iPad by eyeballing, but I can't get the pale yellow right.

Help~
