If geeks love it, we’re on it
You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
TheSmJ said:You have been doing the "Auto Color calibration" after you tried each resistor, right? If not, you could get funky stuff like that. The monitor was pretty messed brightness/contrast wise after I performed the mod until I did this.
TheSmJ said:Well, because I dont have the monitor in front of me this moment, tell me what you did to mess it up, and I'll tell you if that's what I was talking about. ;)
TheSmJ said:Darker. The higher the resistance, the brighter the picture.
darkscion0 said:Went into the menu, and did the "Color Return??" option.Is this the same thing you did?
TheSmJ said:To use the auto color calibration thing, you need to have the monitor powered up (and not let it go into power save mode) for about an hour. You'll know it's warmed up, because once it's happy with it's “warmth” will it let you even select the option. At which point, you can select the option, press (what I recall to be) the right arrow button, and the monitor will go black, and slowly (over the course of 10 seconds or so) fade to white. Then the picture will return (with a better color/brightness/contrast calibration) but you will still have to set the levels themselves, this only calibrates the scale.
slipkid said:thanks but....my moniitor doesn't have an option to do that anywhere....i've searched all of the menusi have a DELL P1110 / trinitron
TheSmJ said:You sure? Check Color/sRGB tab/ and select "Color Return". Keep in mind it may say "Available after warmup", and be unselectable untill the message goes away.
Element said:Hello, I found this thread to be very helpful as I too have this monitor. I dont have a problem with it being too bright. My problem is that I get a shadow to the right of everything on screen. It is not the Convergence settings because the shadow has no color. Is there a controller inside the monitor that will adjust this? Or is this some signs of old age which can not be repaired? Also, how do I remove the cover from the back of the monitor. Thanks for your help :)
Element said:great infomation partipilo. I hope this cable works for me too. :)
