Thanks for your answers Roger and Steffen.Steffen: I knew it, it was me who was stupid. :-) It's no way around a new color meter.
Roger: I just find out that I can buy a Eye-One Display LT for not much more than a Spider 3. Which one should I chose?

And yes, if no one else here on the list has any better suggestion to a solution I'm willing to buy a new color meter. Spyder 3 it's that expensive.

I would not be surprised that the instrument itself is the source of your problems.

Hi, I'm new to the list and got a big problem. I bought me a used Spyder 2. Realized that my old CTR couldn't produce enough light (90 cd/m^2 not 140 cd/m^2 that sRGB require). Digged a deep hole in my wallet and bought a quite expensive NEC 2690WUXI2. Now my color managed application show a green cast after calibration andproofing.It's not fun at all. :-( This is how I do the calibration and proofing: I use dispcalCUI. After that I had use the screen's OSD to set the 'White point', 'White level' and 'Black point' i got this nice values then I do a'Checkall': Doing check measurements Black = XYZ 2.28 7.37 0.00 Grey = XYZ 27.17 28.58 31.02 White = XYZ 130.26 137.22 149.83 1% = XYZ 1.38 1.46 1.58 Target Brightness = 140.00, Current = 137.22, error = -2.0% Target 50% Level = 50.07, Current = 28.58, error = -15.4% Target Near Black = 1.37, Current = 1.46, error = 0.1% Target white = x 0.3128, y 0.3291, Current = x 0.3121, y 0.3288, error= 0.38DE Target black = x 0.3128, y 0.3291, Current = x 0.3120, y 0.3299, error= 1.22DE Then dispcalGUI send this command to dispcal: dispcal -v -d1 -c1 -yl -P0.500317863954,0.485345838218,1.0 -qh -t6500 -b140 -G2.2 -f0 -k0 -A4 -B0.0001 colprof -v -qh -al Before, then I only did a -qm calibration, I got strong red casts on my calibrated screen, and the profiled applications gave strong green casts.Thestrange thing then was that the red cast only occurred on color254,254,254 toaround 249,249,249 but tones darker than that looked neutral grey with my eyes. After that I chose -qh this color tones and others looks neutral,with myeyes. After that I load the calibration profile done after the command above Igotthis then I run dispcal -r -yl: magnus@debian:~$ dispcal -r -yl XRandR 1.2 is faulty - falling back to older extensions Place instrumenton testwindow. Hit Esc or Q to give up, any other key to continue: Current calibration response: Black level = 0.60 cd/m^2 White level = 135.50 cd/m^2 Aprox. gamma = 1.92 Contrast ratio = 226:1 White chromaticity coordinates 0.3099, 0.3266 White Correlated Color Temperature = 6676K, DE 2K to locus = 4.9 White Correlated Daylight Temperature = 6676K, DE 2K to locus = 0.3 White Visual Color Temperature = 6490K, DE 2K to locus = 4.7 White Visual Daylight Temperature = 6664K, DE 2K to locus = 0.3 The instrument can be removed from the screen. I understand nothing. How can I have gamma 1.92 and the above temperature then I chose to calibrate to 2.2 and 6500? And why is there a green cast on the pictures viewed in Color managed applications? Did I understand things right: I should load the profile as a system wide screen calibration profile with dispcalGUI, the same as you do with dispwin -L. And then I load then same profile to the color managed applications as a screen color profile? It's then I load then profile into then color managed applications thatthengreen cast ampere. I have struggled with this for weeks, and googled a lot, and reading thislist without finding any useful help. Therefor I ask you for help. Theonly thingI want is a good color managed environment for working with sRGB pictures.-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (MingW32) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iF4EAREIAAYFAkvBy6wACgkQJYXm27tZN3e7cwEAyeZa6oZBvm5tAvys66Qc9a72 6ITd1+i7DGDjRnyC1kwBAIqW3EuOKQdfJBIeDlq0rB9Z5n3aggbZRZz+pCe09so2 =Ekit -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
