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

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.

What is the best colour adjustment to have monitor on for output printing? Image management or photo retouch?


Hello there aquashell007.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

I infer from your question that it's your belief the quality and/or accuracy of your monitor's output has an effect on the output of your printer, etc. This is not so. Not anymore than by having your monitor turned off, your printer would print a black sheet. In fact, the only thing your monitor's output has an effect on is its viewer ... you.

However, this does bring up an interesting related issue: How can you know if your monitor is truly diplaying orange ... oranges, and green ... greens, and light ... lights, and so on. You can, with calibration software.

There are many freeware choices available to you. "Monitor Calibration Wizard" is one I've used occasionally in the the past over a period of many years.

It is my hope you find this GEEK-steer ... illuminating.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...

Try the monitor on another computer or laptop. Will probably need repair from a computer pro.

Auto adjustment comes on every 5 seconds


Sometimes that can be caused by a loose or bad video cable causing the monitor to re-adjust for the video signal. You could try resetting the monitor by unplugging it for a few hours and re-plugging it again too. Also check with HP and see if they have any warranty, extended warranty, repair notice, free repair/ replacement.

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.

HP f1905e tilt and Height adjustment


I figured it out! Just takes a phillips screwdriver and a 5/16" open end wrench to tighten up some nuts inside the plastic housing. The plastic housing doesn't come off with the screws, but has to be slightly pryed up to release the little plastic catches. Be careful though, you don't want to break the plastic tabs. It's ok to break maybe 1 because there are several to take up the slack. At first I thought it was the nuts that are 1/2" (there are two that are close to 2 springs. But that was just for the tilt forward and backward. Actually there are 4 nuts (5/16") that need to be tightened. Don't over tighten or it will not tilt at all. I took photos of the disassembled base. If you have skype, then skype me at "golfbob" chino hills, and I can send the pics or talk you through it. Good luck.
