Re: Yes, the low battery charge was my cal error reason...

Just to let you know I have a Pulse, I1PRO, and and Spyder3Print and the best and easiest/quickest scanning profiles come from the Pulse.

Two of us also compared the I1PRO profile to a ColorMunki profile and didn't see much, if any differences. So the ColorMunki is another great profile maker.

You know that even if Xrite no longer supports the Pulse I would send an email to Xrite support and ask what could be the issue. You may just get a sympathetic support person that may give you a clue. You have nothing to lose.

The LAB measurements on Pulse white cal disc are


My PULSE 93.75 -0.47 -0.21

Your Pulse was...

93.53, -0.43. 0.33

My I1PRO 94.5 -0.43 2.77

This is a great match, no two white discs are the same, this is extremely close and if I measure my white disc a few times I get different numbers each time.

I would relax and just use it based upon your readings. Take 10 sets of readings, keep them, and then just read the disc before a profiling session, if the readings are near the saved readings you know that you are good to go.

Also you get a cal error, but who knows maybe it is reading the white disc and saving the data, just reporting an error in error.

Again do your prints match the monitor well?
