I am having issues with calibrating my Samsung Plasma, using Calman 5 Basic. Im experienced at calibrating, I've been using Calman since version 4,
I am currently using the following setup:
• Calman 5 Basic ( 5.1.0)
• i1 Display Pro Retail
• Samsung PN59D7000 59"
• AVS HD (Blu-ray) playing on a Samsung Blu-ray player
The basic issue is that every time I calibrate now, using calman 5...the results are incredibly green.
I have run the calibration multiple times (4 since Friday) and each time I can see where it is going wrong.
I have detailed the process below, there are not a lot of options I can customize on the basic package I have...I don't know If I need to profile my meter, or what
This is my process, let me know if you need additional info:
• I am using the 1913 color chart.
• Gamma is power 2.2.
• Hd709 65
• Delta e 2000
• Set to plasma
• Calman widowed patterns ( But last night I tried APL )
I reset the picture mode...I run an advanced calibration. I set my initial settings using the test patterns on the AVS disc under basic :
- Cell Light (100)
- Brightness (63)
- Contrast (75)
- Color (51)
- Tint (51g/49r)
- Then gamma (0)-2.2
- Color temp: Warm 1 (30 6300, 80 6100)
Once I get to the 2 step white balance (RGB OFFSET, RGB GAIN)
I run 30% and 80% grey patterns and Calman reports that the 30% has too much red and blue, and not enough green.
And the 80% has way too much red and blue , and not enough green by far.
To level this out correctly I have to compensate by lowering both the red and blue gains to 0 out of 50 (default is 25)
And on have to up the green to 50 (max) to get the the RGB levels in calman to be balanced.
Something is wrong right there because from that moment on my screen is incredibly green tinted and calman is seeing this as an accurate and balanced white.
From that moment on, When I continue all the way through the 10 point calibration ( calman still tells me on all patterns over 50 that I have to raise the green and drop the red and blue levels)
And the CMS calibration
What results is an green tinted image. And the calman software show it as being balanced and calibrated.
Please let me know if you need additional info from me
My questions are:
- Is there a problem with something in my set up?
- Is there an issue with my meter?
- Is there a meter profile I should use?
I'm frustrated and lost. I've posted on forums, no real luck.
Please help if you can.
Thank you in advance
