Question about LG Flatron L1750S 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Calibration Hi, I'm temporarily using the L1750S for working with design softwares (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc). However the colors and contrast on my screen are way too vivid (an eyesore to be precise). Apart from the default settings, is there a way to optimise the display settings?

Re: Calibration

Have you tried adjusting the "Adobe Gamma" via the setup from your control panel?

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.

I`m trying to run adobe photoshop and it says aoc 919profile appears to be defective...plz rerun ur moniter calibration moniter didn`t come with software

Here's how to fix this:

Go to Control Panel -> Color Management.
In the Devices tab you'll see the Display: ThinkPad Display (resolution) - (graphics card)associated with the TPLCD.icm ICC profile.

This profile is the one conflicting with Adobe Photohop.
What I did was choose another profile that doesn't conflict.

Check the "Use my settings for this device" box, press the "Add..." button, select the other ICC Profile (the one that appears to me is sRGB IEC61966-2.1) and set it as the default profile.

My 2001FP shows the contrast cotrol greyed out and the screen has very low contrast, which I need to correct. I use it with a Dell Inspion 9300. The laptop screen has excellent contrast. The 2001FP...

I have four Dell 2001FP monitors. The unavailable contrast is standard for this monitor when used with digital input (DVI). Make sure your brightness is at 100%.If you want a better result of dynamic range and color, the only effective option is color calibration. I use the inexpensive Huey Pro, available
several places, including eBay. Retail is around $100. It something one uses maybe twice a year, takes five minutes to install and use, and the results are notable. I'm a designer, and need excellent color. This is the best solution. Calibrate your laptop as well, and the color should be almost exactly the same between them.

As an alternative, you can use the color settings, select User Preset, and start with something around 40 red 43 green and 37 blue. Adjust proportionately upward until you get what you want.

Another possibility is to use a different connector cable if your laptop has that option, since your monitor an take four different input formats.

Good luck.

I am using a Viewsonic VX2235WM monitor for photo editing


Its actually normal. That normally happens to some monitor models at the 6500K setting. Try a higher one.

I hope this helps.

I am not getting the correct colors from my SLR camera. Is this due to my computer monitor?

Yes, the monitor need to be calibrated using an optical attachment (looks like hockey puck) that is placed on the screen using software, but the monitor must support automate software calibration. You can google for LCD monitor color/white balance calibration tools.

Color calibration

All monitors have a brightness control. Click the menu button and from the on screen menu choose the brightness and set it to your liking. There should also be a contrast control and may or may not be a backlight control. All the user controlled setting are in the OSM.

Contrast on my acer monitor is bad how do you adjust it

You can use the monitor's own settings, but that doesn't work very well. I just bought an Acer V233H monitor myself, and I am very disappointed about the quality of contrast and color.

However, I have NVIDIA video card, which comes with software that you can use to adjust gamma, colors, contrast etc. That worked better for me. Still not perfect, but better than the monitor's own settings.

Sounds like the brightness is too high and the contrast is too low, which isn't a color calibration problem. Try these resources:

One here.

Another very good one here.

It may just be that the monitor is cheap and the backlight is washing it out, if the able calibration techniques don't help it sounds like you may need to buy a pricer monitor to meet your requirements.

Yellowing screen after 15 minute great working!

While CRT monitors are very good with color rendition, they do have a warm up time (at least 30 minutes before to get the truest color they can give) they also lose brightness and contrast over time. Since you do Photshop work and color is important to you, you should consider a new monitor, if you want to stick with the CRT style they are still available cheaper now because of the popularity of the thinner lightweight space saving LCD's, but you can get a new LCD which will be better that the .26 dot pitch you are used to on the HP. Depending on the extent you rely on your monitor for color accuracy, you can find a reasonable replacement monitor all they way up to an outrageously priced model which has lots of adjustments. Be be advised all monitors are going to look different and all should be calibrated, either visually with software based adjustment or with a hardware / software monitor calibration. That's a whole different solution - ask if you want to know more. I personally went from a 21" Sony CRT, huge and heavy to a 20" widescreen LCD, no regrets, the images are clear the display is stable. So go and look at them at your local computer store. The cost to have the CRT repaired combined with shipping (the weight is a factor) was just under the cost of a new LCD. There are very few user serviceable parts for monitors and repairing is not as economical or practical as it was back in the days of "TV Repair" shops.
