    can't run Display color calibration


    Hi,
    All my efforts to run monitor calibration using windows10 color management method failed. All I get is the attached error windows stating: "Display color calibration can't calibrate the selected display because the display is "mirrored"

    How do cancel this mirroring effect or' alternatively' how do I enable calibration?

    Your System Specs don't contain much information so the question would be, Do you have 2 or more monitors connected to the computer?

    Try the process again but with the TV disconnected. Adjustments sometimes only work with the default hardware setup.

    Thanks Berton. You're right. My problem stemmed for the multiple screen choice.

    You're welcome. Things seem to go better when locating when a problem happens and what occurred at the time.
