I got an eye one display 2 yesterday and immediately tried to profile my Lacie electron19blue IV CRT monitor. Everything seemed ok except for the part when it was measuring my monitor’s color temperature and having me adjust the RGB controls on the monitor.
The colorimeter didn’t seem to detect the changes I was making to the Red adjustment. Well at least the red slider never moved at all, while the green and blue sliders moved as I made adjustments. The red slider just stayed all the way to the left.
When I was making red adjustments the eye one match 3.2a software would show the color temperature changing, but it just would show the red slider moving. So now I’m wondering if this colorimeter is broken. The diagnostics check out ok.
I was able to successfully calibrate this monitor with my old Colovision Spyder (original) and PhotoCal 2.7.7 with no problems. I know that the red monitor adjustment is working since I can see the changes on the screen.
Any idea what may be going wrong? I was attempting to calibrate the monitor to 6500K and 100 luminence. I also tried at 5000K but that made no difference in the problem.
Thanks for any suggestions.
