View Full Version : How do I restore the default color profile

Apr 27, 2011, 03:44 PM
I'm running an iBook G4 with the most recent version of leopard. I tried to calibrate the color profile and I messed it up. Now there is far to much contrast and the colors are off.

However I have noticed that when it is in the installing updates screen before it restarts the color is back to normal.

No matter what I do I can't get the default color profile that I'm seeing on the installing updates screen to activate. Any suggestions?

Can't you select another profile in System Preferences > Displays >> Color?

I can but the color does not change. I think that I calibrated the original profile and now it is incorrect.

Deselect "Show profiles for this display only" and select some other profiles and see if that changes anything.

none of the profiles I select look correct, or should I say, optimal. The only time it does look optimal is on the installing updates screen.
