Question about HP f1905 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Calibration of monitor

My HP f1905 is great EXCEPT when printing photos. When I adjust them on the monitor to look good, they always print much darker. I use two different printers. Epson All In One Rx700 and an Epson Photo R260. I seem to have the same trouble with both. I was told to first calibrate the monitor before doing anything with calibrating the printers, however I cannot afford to spend $250.plus on software to do that job. I also read that Adobe Gamma cannot calibrate correctly with an LCD monitor. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 or Digital Image 10 for adjusting pictures. Can you help me? I waste a lot of ink and paper trying to print and get the correct colors depth or shade. Thank you

Kay B.

Here's the tip I used years ago on CRT's suffering this same fate.

Take one of your printed photo's and hold it next to the screen (with the same photo on it running in whatever software you want to print from)
Now using the monitors controls, make the monitor look like your photo that you have printed.
Nice and dark now like the photo, good =)
Now adjust the software to what you want it to look like when printed.
Looking good so far..ok
Save those settings in the program. then re adjust the monitor back to how you want it to look normally (as it was before basically)

Not the ideal soloution, but it works and it's free.

Problem with the HP LaserJet 4730mfp All-In-One Printer Unable to use ADF. Red light under start button.


Do the calibration for the scanner.

1. Place letter- or A4-size paper in tray 1, and adjust the side guides.
2. On the control-panel Home screen, scroll to and touch Administration.
3. Touch Troubleshooting.
4. Touch Calibrate Scanner.
5. Touch Calibrate to print the first pass of the calibration target(Print out).
6. Place the first pass of the calibration target face-down in tray 1 so that the arrows are facing into the MFP.
7. Touch Start to print the second pass.
8. Place the calibration target face-up into the ADF, and adjust the side guides.
9. After the calibration target has passed through the ADF once, reposition it face down in the ADF and touch Start.
10. Place the calibration target face-down on the scanner glass, touch Start, and scan the page.
After this pass, the calibration is complete.
Calibration will fails if print quality is not good...ensure that print quality must be in order..
Once calibration successfully done, restart printer several times & verify start button light, if its green every time 'u' re success. if not cleaning required for CCD which is major work & not suggestable..

Print and screen color matching is HORRIBLY difficult. It could be a case of old ink, humid air, poor calibration, or different qualities of paper (when comparing two prints).

For best, most consistent products, go to a professional photo finisher/print shop.

Photo prints are very dark and muddy


Hey,

I also have this problem. I even have prints that were made when I first got the printer about 2 years ago, which looked great then and now, and the EXACT same picture from the same program prints incredibly (unusably) dark.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Colour photo printing has a green tinge


This could be one of many things.
Monitor Calibration to Printer.
Camera green Bias
And good many more
The thing is not to print direct from camera , but to use an image editor to colour correct.
A free simple one is Googles free Picasa.
Otherwise there are many more some free a lot to be paid for.
As always there is a learning curve.

Multiple monitors, hp f1905 image auto adjusts to upper left corner


You are not looking for the driver for your monitor. You need the drivers for your video card. It is probably running with the defualt Vista drivers as well and needs to have the correct manufactures drivers installed.
With the correct drivers you should be able to control 2 different settings one for each monitor.

Prints look different from PC.


Just a guess but I imagine your monitor needs adjusted, here is a link http://www.normankoren.com/... ...akingfineprints1A.html#Monitor_test_pattern If you do a search here for monitor calibration you will find lots of opinions. Usually the printed version looks better than the monitor shows. It is my guess that you are sharpening way to much to make it look good on your monitor. All monitors are different , which is one reason when you send someone a picture that you really think is terrific only to find that they don't think much of it. Maybe since you have the Kodak version you could adjust your monitor to look like it, that way when you edit you will not overdo it.
