Thread: Using DVI cable cannot control contrast?

  1. #1

    Default Using DVI cable cannot control contrast?

    Bought a new LCD monitor (Dell 20") recently and decided to use DVI (since many ppl say DVI is better than VGA) however I realise I could not set my contrast of the monitor but it was set automatically by the monitor .

    Well, when I start processing my photos, everything looks nice on the LCD but when I view the photos using another calibrated CRT monitor, I find the photos are rather flat, no contrast. Then I adjusted the contrast by using curve on the CRT. When done, I switch back and view the photos on the new LCD, the photos look over contrast and ugly.

    The help I need is, is there anything that I can do to solve this or only solution is to switch back using VGA so that I am able to adjust the contrast? Or I accept to view all the photos with high contrast on the LCD...???

    Thanks in advance for any inputs.

    Cheers!

    Maybe you would like to do a calibration on both your LCD and CRT?

    For my case, I am using a Sony monitor. If I set the backlight to Auto, then I am not able to adjust the contrast and backlight. If I set to PC mode, then I am able to adjust all backlight, contrast and backlight.
