Sounds like an ICC profile went corrupt. Not sure which file you might be misisng, though.sunfast said:Does nobody have any idea? I'm sorry to be a pain but it's really bothering me. My screen has this horrid blue tint.
I've tried to calibrate the display using display preferences but it says
"Can not calibrate the display
The factory profile for the display could not be found."
SuperCal looked to be fixing it during the process but it went blue again straight after.
Thanks for the help iG. I've downloaded some profiles for a MacBook but I don't know where they go exactly. How do I "use" a downloaded profile?iGary said:Sounds like an ICC profile went corrupt. Not sure which file you might be misisng, though.
Thanks for the reply nitynate. I followed your instructions, clicked open from ColorSync Utility and that just gave me a window to open a profile. So I opened my downloaded profile and it just gave me a ColorSync window as before. Am I being stupid?nitynate said:snip
I did and it found 2 profiles with errors (which it fixed).iMeowbot said:Have you tried Profile First Aid in Colorsync Utility?
Tried that too! (was on windows not very long ago so, embarrassingly, was one of the first things I did ) But it didn't work.Plinkoman said:I know this sounds very windows like, but try rebooting. That happened to me once after I was messing around with some external displays and things were fine after a reboot.
The whites look normal (do screen grabs even capture this stuff?). PCs normally use a bluer profile, is that what you have at work?sunfast said:I've just looked at my screen grab above (on my work computer now) and it looks pretty blue to me. Does anybody else concur?
I am using a PC at work, yes. I'm not sure if screen grabs do capture stuff (I thought that was down to what the display does with the image). Hmmm.iMeowbot said:The whites look normal (do screen grabs even capture this stuff?). PCs normally use a bluer profile, is that what you have at work?
Having just read this part of your post iMeowbot I think you may be right. I was fast user switching at the time (it was just after I switched from another account that it went blue.) Will investigate...iMeowbot said:
