Question about Philips 170B4MG 17" LCD Monitor

Too much magenta

Hi, I have a Philips 170b4bgbs TFT monitor with a colour problem. I do a lot of photo editing but the screen colour is heavily tinted with magenta. I have tried re-setting the colour controls but the magenta stays prominent. Do I need a driver update. My operating system is Vista Home Premium.

My Canon Pro9000 MarkII prints photos with a red tint


You probably haven't calibrated your monitor to show the correct colours, so in whatever photo programme you're using, you're setting the red tones too high. Test this by first not calibrating your monitor, but turning down all the red tone until it looks washed out. Print this and see if it's better. If so, set your monitor to a cooler colour temperature. If the result is no better, check your print dialogue settings to make sure you are using an appropriate colour profile. And, for example, if you're using Photoshop, tick 'let Photoshop manage colours' in the advanced profile settings box. Hope this helps. I doubt there's anything wrong with the printer.

Best settings to edit pictures on an Asus VE248H monitor


Best is to reduce all colour levels and check if the black and white picture is good on the monitor, If this is incorrect then then the hardware sectiion is faulty and colour purity will not be there in any settings.
Also once this is corrected the colour tint can be corrected by checking with different shades and then check with landscapes to correct.

My photos print out way darker than the monitor shows this happens with two different printers...I need tips on how to adjust it. NOT a computer person ;)


Hi this could be your printer aswell, your printer could be printing the colours in darker then it should, or if it is this Screen , then your screen is probably set too bright then it should making everything lighter and brighter
Thanks

red over coloured. I then successfully printed a letter in B&W proving that the black cartridge was still working.However as soon as I tried again to print a coloured photo it now tells me that the machine does not recognise the black cartridge and orders me to change it and until I do refuses to take any instructions telling me to install the black cartridge cprrectly.The black cartridge installed isout half full and has successfully printed copies and photos.I have carried out the suggested remedies by the machine and none were effectuve.How do it the infernal machine working again???

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

Too much magenta on the screen


There seems to be only one driver for all Operating Systems for this monitor. You can try going into the OSD (On Screen Display) and adjusting the color. You can also check to see if there is an updated video driver for your video card. This may be your problem rather than the monitor.

Here's a link to the Philips Support page for your monitor where you can download the User's Manual and driver. But it seems the driver has not been updated since 2005.

Gateway FPD1960 19" CD has a red tint to all oc screen when I turn it on.


Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.

Incorrect colour is printed


I would try to replace the printhead and the magenta cartridge at the same time. Lots of people with leaky cartridges have this same symptom only, it is with whatever color is malfunctioning.
