Luminence Target

I’m using i1 display2 on a fairly new LCD NEC 1980 SXi.
Whether I try easy calibration or advanced, I end up with a current luminence value of about 58 when the target is 140.
Am I missing something in the calibration?
Do I have a monitor problem or calibrator problem?

Actually I’m getting a pretty good match between the screen and the print. Maybe the screen is a tad brighter than the print from an Epson 4000 with the Epson profiles but then I’m one of those people who don’t soft proof.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I sent you direct a series of screen shots how I did it. (the screen
shots will be stripped out of the forum email) I didnt mess with the
lumination so its off a hair because I have my monitor locked but
note I still came within 3 and the tolerance is 5.

Hope this helps

Mike,
Thanks. I do not get a screen for luminence. I get first a screen for
contrast which I set to 100% and then pull back until I get the “arrows”
to line up.
Next I get to choose the RGB. I use the preset option
Then I get the brightness adjustment screen with i1. Even with my
monitor set at 100% brightness I still end up with a luminence of 58 to
60%. I’ve tried the easy method and the advanced method. Still not
getting anywhere near 140 luminence. I’ve calibrated this monitor
before and I don’t remember having this problem.
