Color cast on display after profiling Poor contrast or luminance after profiling Unexpected results with the profile
If a display profile produces poor results (color cast, low contrast, high contrast, low luminance, etc...) try profiling again after making sure to check the following:
Connect the measurement device to a properly powered USB port. Typically, a tower will have rear ports that more reliably and consistently deliver the required power to the device.
Avoid using USB ports on keyboards and monitors. Also avoid unpowered USB hubs as well as USB extensions.
An acceptable extension is the use of a powered USB hub. Some laptop computers will require a powered USB hub to deliver the necessary power.
PLACE THE MEASUREMENT DEVICE FLUSH ON THE SCREEN WHEN PROFILING! This will more easily be accomplished tipping the display back and carefully place the device on the screen while viewing from the side. An instrument that is not flush on the screen’s surface will result in bad measurement data and then poor results when using the profile.
Consider turning off any anti-virus and/or firewall software while profiling.
