    I have attached an image of my dual LG 5K displays and you will see the the one of the left is considerably more 'yellow' than the one on the right.

    Has anyone come across this issue? if so, is there any fix for it?



    p.s. they are both set to the same native white point

    Seems pretty minor, and it's the nature of the beast. If it bothers you, get a calibrator, e.g. the Spyder5Pro, which will produce a calibration profile for each monitor that should make them appear more similar. (Note this won't fix any colour consistency issues (e.g. if you have a yellow spot on one half of the screen), but in the pictures you've posted they appear nicely consistent.)

    What happens if you set the colour profile to sRGB for both?

    Are you sure you don’t have Night Shift turned on for the left display?

    So I have the same issue. I sent mine out for some service and it came back with a nasty yellow tint. I have tried over and over to get them to make it right with no luck. I have tried to calibrate them and I can not seem to get the profile just right to match. So I was wondering what did you do with your 5k displays

    I received one of my serviced displays yesterday (the panel had to be replaced) and I now have the same yellow color issue with. LG acknowledged it was an issue and they want me to send it back. Has anyone had any luck sending it back for repair? Any other workarounds that have been successful (such as using a calibrator)?
