Calibration less contrasty after restart


Recommended Posts

I am going crazy with calibration here. I have a decent Dell ultrasharp - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-U2715H-27-Inch-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B00P0EQD1Q/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1509200052&sr=8-3&keywords=dell+ultrasharp

I am using X rite pro and read both your guides on it. I have tried every setting, doing everything manually the system leaves me with torquiose windows and google chrome top parts (if you know what I mean).

Using ADC is better, with the system doing everything and profilling to V2. When it's done, I am extremely happy - it adjusts the RGB values an dmoves my monitor out of standard and into custom colour, selecting R 95 G 92 and blue about 89 if I remember. This looks great. And has bit more contrast than standard on my monitor which is flat. 

 

However, when i restart, colours seem same I would say but everything is less contrasty to a ridiculous level that shadows are all open and the files look mega flat, what is going on it's driving me mental. I switched from spyder 5 to this  to try and solve this issue but ready to return this too!

Found out that my ultrasharp has DDC, going to trial recalibrating with it off as some suggest on the internet.

I take it after x-rite is done and saved the profile, thats the calibration. I don't need to "restart" to see it. Therefore, by that logic, it's good after calibrating, its the restart that makes it go wrong? Little help here?

Hi Damien, I re calibrated before you replied turning off the DDC setting on my dell monitor and it worked a charm, everything looks perfect. It was somehow making a total mess of it all!
