    Unhappy Issue on Spyder3 Pro Calibration

    Juz bought it recently n eagerly to calibrate my laptop, HP DV6000 series.

    Some description of my lappy :
    1. Its 15.4"
    2. The one with the shiny screen.
    3. Set to 1280x800

    My Issue :
    Been trying to calibrate since last 2 days using all the options available.
    But to my disappointment, so far the best was the one with native.
    Others turn to be a bit greenish luks.
    Native one luks warmer.
    Cudnt find out wats the prob.
    Been trying to illuminate up n down my backlit but all trial r still the same.

    Pls advise.
    Was thinking to sell this Pro version n get the Elite.
    But afraid the Elite will turn out to b the same..

    After calibration, go to DPReview and look at some of the samples to see if they look right. Sometimes, your eyes may be accustomed to what you think is neutral tone. The room light can play tricks with your eyes also.

    May want to make sure the sensor make good contact to screen surface and lower ambient light before you start.

    The sucker can be removed for better contact.

    Wat is DPReview?
    Where can i find that "button"?
    Ive tried to calibrate under normal room light, low light, high light n no light.
    Makes no difference.

    Didnt use the sucker.
    My laptop even tilt outward slightly more than 90 degree for better contact.

    For some comparison just google for "Colour Test Charts", download and have a look at your screen. Especially the grey parts easily reveal any colour casts.
