Hardware :: Color Calibrating Monitor Using Color Meter - How To Use Color Meter And Save Color Profile

Feb 20, 2009

before switching to Mac, I used an "X-Rite Eye One Display 2" color meter device with software. You can find them most places like Amazon for about $150. The device should still work, but I can't find any software for it for the Mac. After going to the X-Rite web site, I could find no software at all for the Mac as it is only windows based.

Surely someone out there has used a color meter such as this one as they are quite popular especially for graphics artists that use professional graphic monitors. I am hoping someone can tell me how to use my color meter (USB), what software for Mac Leopard I need and how to save the color profile in the Mac OS.

OS X :: Translucent White / Light Grey Strip On Screen

Mar 4, 2010

Got my macbook here. Bought it 1.5 years ago. Out of warranty. Running on 10.5.8. When I printscreen it, the white strip does not appear. Its present even when I'm using my mac. And additionally, It's only visible when the background isn't white or black. Also, its been happening on and off. It normally goes away if I've been carrying my macbook in my backpack and then open it up again (leads me to think maybe it is sensitive and may have been bonked on something while I was carrying it in my bag). However, this time, it hasn't gone away simply by rebooting it.

OS X :: Mac Color Picker White Instead Of Black?

Oct 25, 2010

I'll start off with a screenshot.I'm specifically talking about the bar on the right hand side, that slides from the red I chose to black.Is there anyway I could have that same sliding-type bar, only sliding from red to white? Is there anyway I could have them both up at the same time? (So I'd have two different sliding bars, one going to the black and one going to the white) (Or actually, even if they could be combined... that would be sweet too. So the sliding bar looks like ms paints sliding bar, basically white, color you have, black)If I'm a little bit too confusing please respond with your question and I'll try to explain it a little bit more.

OS X :: Changing White (change Monitor Color)?

Dec 25, 2010

This may be of interest of more of you. I want to be able to read easier when the background is white, especially pdf files, or webpages.

I did not find a solution for certain documents, to change a background without breaking the style. I'm using the lowest brightness but I found its easier to read when I make the background gray, for example in textEdit.

ideas for pdf files ?

Mac Pro :: Video Driver Updates - Color Seems Almost White

Jun 30, 2009

I've got an early 2008 Mac Pro, and when I now run at the native resolution on my monitor, the color seems almost too white. Lettering gets washed out a bit (like writing text on this forum post). The white bleeds over everything. If I take a screen shot and look at it on a different mac, it looks fine - so there's something wrong with my video drivers. I can boot the machine into a Snow Leopard build and everything looks fine, but back in my main Leopard build, it doesn't. Is there any way to re-apply video drivers?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change White Default Color Of Finder Windows In Column And List Views?

Jun 27, 2012

Is there (or will there ever be) any way to change the white default color of finder windows in column and list views? Or is there a 3rd party app? You can change them in icon view but that's the only view I never use. My eyes get so tired staring at white all day. If I could make all my windows dark grey I could work longer, better, happier. Would also love to make the Mail app dark.

Jun 20, 2012

How do I change the color on my desktop? I have Snow Leopard, latest version.I had messed things up and somehow accidentally changed the color of the desktop to a light blue, from the darker background I had previously.Someone at Apple said to right click my mouse on the desktop and it would give me options to change the color. But nothing happens at all when I right click the mouse on the desktop. I get no options, and no menu. Same with left clicking the mouse on the desktop.

MacBook Pro :: Faint Mark Of Light Color On Black Screen / Nothing Visible When Screen Is Off

Jan 4, 2010

I have a problem with my screen - when there is something black on, I can see a faint mark of a lighter colour. I have tried to take a picture, please excuse the poor quality. There is nothing visible when the screen is off, even under close examination. Is it less visible when lighter things are on the screen, and invisible when the screen is white.

No drops or liquid spills. Will this go away on it's own? Any fixes?

PowerPC :: Screen Resolution And Color Calibration / Grey Flickering Screen On Internal Monitor

Dec 5, 2007

Thing is I got hold of a 1ghz 17" iMac almost for free, it had a dead logicboard (I checked it with a voltage-meter), but I figured I could fix it and have a small hobby project-thingie going on. Well I just got a new logic board today, for a 1ghz 17" iMac g4.

Things is I only get a bright grey screen from my Mac when I boot. I've tried connecting it to a external display and that works fine. Everything is there.

I then reinstalled Tiger on it, with the computer connected to my external screen. And I still have the same problem. (I have now disconnected the ext. screen and is controlling the iMac from my MBP). So at least it isn't the installation.

So what is the problem? I can via an Apple Keyboard control the brightness on the blank screen, which would indicate that it does react to input of some degree.

I've read that if the inverter is dead or anything else is dead, you would get a rolling grey screen, flicker or something like that and not a steady bright grey. One thing I'm thinking is. What if somehow this logic board was for a 15" 1ghz imac g4? Can I check this?

I read that long thread about guys buying hi-res displays for their MBPs, and they had to replace some display profile? Could I maybe fix it with a different display profile-file?

I'm really confused by all this, and would appreciate any help I can get.

Model: PowerMac6,1
CPU-Type: PowerPC G4 (3.3)


the gfx chip is a GeforceMX4 with 32mb.

The display is a mode 9c27, manufacturer 610, serialnumber 00000, manufacture date: B84D7200.

MacBook :: Screen Color Settings Change After Screen Saver?

May 8, 2009

so this has happened twice now in the past month, my mb is in screen saver mode and i wake it up to find that the color is off in the screen. meaning that the color settings changed and the screen has a swashed out blue tint to it. first time i restarted and all was good, second time i clicked on the preferences icon and then the screen went back to its normal setting. my normal setting is not the factory one but one of the ones that people said makes the screen look better.

so what gives, is the integrated chip dieing on me?

OS X :: Screen Color Gone Completely Solarized

Sep 7, 2009

So I was playing World of Warcraft with out the battery in since I find when removing the battery the temperature diminishes. But I accidentally pulled the power cord and my computer shut down. When I rebooted my computer screens color has gone all funny. This isn't the first time this has happened. The first time I just turned on my computer and the color was like this. After 3 months while watching a movie on an external monitor and accidentally ripping the monitors plug out of my laptop, it magically fixed itself. The second time was while I was in college. I walked into library, sat down, turned on my computer and it was back. I slapped my computer around a little bit out of frustration. Repeatedly turned it on, then shut if off with the power button for about 30 minutes, and again it decided to work properly after awhile.

Now this third time, while playing WoW, I've tried both previous solutions over and over again but nothing has changed. I've taken it in to apple store seeing as how i bought the extended warranty but the problem is the 2 closest corners to me have minor dents in them and they said accidental damage isn't covered in my warranty even though I doubt these dents have anything to do with my problem since those dents happened over 2 years ago. I've attached some pictures. The first one is how my screen should look, the second one is how it actually looks. The third is of how movies look, and the 4th is how my games start up screen looks. For some reason it wont let me upload the images. The only way I can describe the problem in words is that it looks like an imaged I edited with the solarized option on a cell phone. All bright reds greens and blues.

PowerPC :: G4 Screen Changing Color / Not Booting

Dec 24, 2006

Yesterday I installed the latest security updates for my ibook via software update. I'm not sure if this is related to my problem, but I thought I might as well mention it. A few hours after installing the updates, I turned on my computer. Everything was running fine, however as I was listening to music and surfing the internet, my screen turned black. I checked the contrast and it was all the way up. The screen then turned completely off. Upon restarting the computer, my screen got to the loading page with the apple icon and the loading circle, and then turned black and flickered every so often with a screen of vertical multi-colored bars.

I held down the power button to turn the screen off, and the flickering increased, before becoming completely covered by the multi-colored bars and then shutting off. This morning I tried again and my computer actually booted up. However, after a few seconds the screen went black, paused for a few seconds, then went completely red, then green, then blue, then three shades of gray, and finally black again. It repeated this cycle twice before the screen turned itself off. Is this a virus, or hardware/software malfunctioning. I've had my ibook for two years.

IMac :: Enhance Mac's Screen Color/display

Sep 13, 2009

I opened up system prefs to calibrate my screen for the first time so you will need to go to 'Displays' then 'Color' then 'Calibrate' on the side.

It will open up a few tests and when finished make a new display profile, when your done constantly switch between your original profile and the calibrated one (imac calibrated).

You will see a huge difference in enhancement of the screen color lighting and adds more texture, you should look at your wallpaper when switching I chose the snowy mountain wallpaper from snow leopard and it really improved a lot.

IMac :: Screen Color Wake From Sleep

Apr 11, 2010

After my 27" i7 wakes up from a long sleep (roughly over 1.5 hours), something very odd goes on with my color profile and/or screen. Approx. 5 second or so after waking, the screen color appears to wash out quite a bit. You certainly have to be quick to notice it, but something is definitely going on.
