2 monitors, different colors - NOT because of calibration.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

 

I have 2 monitors, both are the same model - LG 27UD68-W, and I noticed that the colors displayed are different quite a lot. The main (in front of my eyes) display has much more green greyish color and the side display has more white, "filterfree" look. Naturally I thought that these displays are just not calibrated properly (although they come in a box with a nice certificate of factory calibration results and LG lets reminds you of that everywhere), so since I cared more about the monitor in front of me I just simply switched the side one with one in the middle. 

 

I was quite surprised to see that it didn't matter. I switched the ports/cables/graphic card outputs, changed which display is my main one, checked in Nvidia panel for any differences and so on and could not find any reason at all for that. It weirded me out a lot, to a point where I thought I am so stupid that I screwed back the same monitors, but my older one has a sticker on the bottom and now it is my side one and it was the middle one, so that's not it.

 

It clearly seems like some system/graphic cards settings, but I just can't figure out what is it. I even tried to use screen calibration (windows and others), because I was thinking "hey in the end it matters that the middle screen has nice colors" and although I could fix some display aspects it was breaking the other ones. I tried multiple times to reset all the settings to default, reinstall drivers, switch cables and so on, no luck.

 

ANY help/suggestions will be really appreciated.

 

Thank you!

did you try to change up the settings in the actual monitor? just change the hues

Yes I did, I tried for a long time, but still the effect was nowhere close to acceptable :(
