Hello, hokkaido88. Firstly just make sure your laptop screen is properly calibrated (with Spyder 3 etc. etc..).
Secondly, it could be possible that the brightness setting for your camera's LCD screen is way too high, resulting in a arbitrarily 'over-exposed' image.
Trust your calibrated laptop screen. That is your best bet.

It means ur LCD sceen is over exposed :-/ Anyway it's a tentative thing. Like picture edited in Macs always look underexposed in other LCDs because MAC's LCD is brighter.

The only way to prove is to print out the picture.

Both LCD monitor and laptop screen was calibrated. But somehow a proper exposure picture in laptop was over expose in LCD monitor.

Is it possible that this old LCD monitor can't be properly calibrated?

It depends on whether you do a calibration for just the colour or you include the luminance as well. If you want to get the same brightness, then you'll have to match the white point luminance and black point luminance also.

I didn't customise the calibration options. I just clicked and select the default option.
Do you mean, i need to set both value the same for both monitor?

Lookout for your backlit setting when power adapter/batt is being used.
This settings will overide ur cal settings.

You may calibrate both of the monitor, please take note that both of hte monitor may have different level of illumination. Ideally, it should be between the range of 80-120 cd/m2.

cheers...

different monitors have different controls, so some can be calibrated more precisely than others

using default setting while profiling your monitor does not really work well

You could set a target luminance for both the monitor or you can set the brighter one to match the other.
