Jennifer Posted February 21, 2016 Share Posted February 21, 2016 Hey Brian/Damien/et al: I have a question about my monitor - Dell U2412M purchased in January of 2014. When I did the original calibration for this monitor with a spyder4Pro and followed Damien's directions, I remember that the "current Kelvin value" numbers which were read from each preset were closer to the presets themselves. For example, the 6500 preset was a number much closer to 6500. I know that I picked the preset which fell between 6000-7000; I just don't remember which preset it was (although I'm such a pack rat I probably still have the paper I wrote it down on)! Things seemed to be fine for a while, and then these past few months, I started having problems with my Spyder4Pro (purchased at the end of 2013 I believe) and the calibration reminder not working. Went through downloading the latest version, following their suggestions, etc. and nothing worked. I do have an open ticket with them about that problem, but it's getting old so I may be in the market for a new calibrator. In addition, every calibration after trying to fix that problem involved doing a full calibration. So, I was back to comparing the presets to the current Kelvin values again, and nothing came close to being between the recommended 6000-7000. I've been getting numbers like 5905 for the 5700 preset and 7371 for the 6500 preset. So, my highest priority question is: Since I don't have (or at least no longer have) "a preset which gets me in the 6000-7000 range," does that mean I need to get a new monitor after just two years? Or that my Spyder4Pro is messed up and I should get a new calibrator? Thanks - Jennifer Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
