Dell 2408 has blue tint...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all! I have three monitors, all Dell UltraSharps. One is a 2405, the other a 2407, and I have a 2408. I just bought the 2408, and it has a blue tint compared to the other two. I swapped the monitor to another video card, swapped the DVI cable, attached the monitor to a different computer, all to no avail. Is this a normal thing for this monitor, or should I return it? Thanks for any assistance!

Sounds like the colour temperature is set to high on that screen but im not sure how you change it on nvidia cards.

Have you messed with any of the calibration settings? That sounds like the problem to me. They have a white balance setting in the OSD.

My thoughts exactly...

I have. Played around with the RBG, and switched between all the various settings for preset modes. Even did the Custom RBG. I also have brightness all the way to 100, and it still has a slight blue tint. Not sure how to adjust just the white balance, or temperature.
