Monitor Colour Temperature

I'm trying to properly calibrate my monitor, an Iiyama 19" Vision Master Pro 454.

By default, its colour temperature is set to 9300K

Does this sound right, or has anyone got any suggestions!

Suggestions? Don't try it. I guarantee you will end up bald and with a headache and still non the wiser

(Or was that just me?)

Dunno. My HPf1723 is set to 6500K by default. If I set it to 9300K, everything looks blue.

I realise this doesn't help you one jot.

.. I tend to agree with you there! It can be adjusted up to 10,000K and then it goes to sRGB. BUT under the menu of colour control there is also Red and Blue which can be adjusted :icon_eek:

..and that's before you move on to the gamma correction option and "OPQ" - which has settings for movie, text1, text2 etc.

All I want is a monitor that displays colour correctly! (without shelling out £130 for the Sypder 2!)

..all my pictures, taken with my D70, look a little dark on the screen.. but if I use the ICC profile for my Epson R800 they print fine..

I've just gone through the Adobe Gamma wizard to set up a new profile for my monitor, and basically it said ramp up my monitors contrast to full, then adjust the brightness until a certain box is dark and white is still white etc, then it moves onto Gamma.

Leaving my contrast up full?

Then it tells me to fiddle with a gamma slider until the grey box in the middle 'merges' with the lined square around it....it never does, from minimum through to maximum, it stays 'standing out'.

What am I doing wrong?
