LG monitor replaced with a different brand... what do I do now?

    I had to get my Macbook 11" repaired, and the monitor was replaced.

    Before, when I typed in the:

    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    command in Terminal, the output began with the prefix LP, indicating it was an LG monitor.

    Now, when I type the command in, I get the prefix B instead.

    Does this imply that it is a Samsung monitor now? Or another brand?

    And, more importantly, would this macbook have had its colour profiles set-up for the LG monitor, and now the colours will all be off? Do I need to calibrate it?

    Advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Where did you get it repaired? Might be a off brand panel, not sure. And yes you have to calibrate it for the new Panel.But if it looks good to you then don't worry about it.
