The colors you perceive on a display can be altered by many factors, such as ambient light, the position of the display and angle of the display. If you are working with areas of light gray or white on your display and you notice a slight pink or other color tint on your Cinema HD Display (23-inch DVI) that's connected to an Apple computer, try the following steps:
- Upgrade to Mac OS X v10.3.6 or later, which improves the ColorSync calibration for Cinema HD Display (23-inch DVI) displays.
- If you still need to adjust it further after updating to Mac OS X 10.3.6, use the Display Calibrator Assistant, available in Mac OS X, to adjust the display so that the white point is better suited to your specific requirements. You may want to run the Display Calibrator Assistant more than once during the first few weeks of use to ensure optimal calibration of the display.
- If these steps do not improve the display, contact Apple using the phone number listed in your inbox materials.
How to create the custom display profile varies based on which operating system you are using:
Using the Display Calibrator Assistant in Mac OS X:
- From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
- Click Displays.
- Click the Color tab.
- Click the Calibrate button.
- Click on the Expert Mode checkbox.
- Follow the instructions, and save the custom profile when finished.
Using the management tool provided in Windows:
Consult your specific OS and video card documentation for information about Image Color Management (ICM) and modifying Monitor Profiles. Many video cards include utilities which provide capabilities similar to the Display Calibrator Assistant provided in Mac OS X.
