I am currently using my Grandfather's iMac G5. I love it and it is an absolutely awesome computer, but the problem is that the display ssettings are off. The color looks completely washed out, and at some point I can't even read the text on the screen because the black isn't showing up against the white. My father has tried to come in a calibrate the settingss but nothing has worked so far. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, how did you fix it to get it back to normal and so that all of the colors looked correct?

iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    If the above is of no help then you will need to do the following:

    System Preferences>Display>Display
    Check the Colors & Brightness settings.
    My Color setting is set to Millions which I believe is the default setting.

    Now click on the Color button.
    Check Display Profile
    Is Show profiles for this display only enabled or disabled?
    If necessary click on the Calibrate button & do the necessary.
    +You never detailed what your father did regarding calibrating.+

    Now in the bottom right corner, click on the purple button w/the black ? mark in the middle. This will bring up the help window.

    Midway down, click on the Colorsync Utility link.

    The next window should be Profile First Aid.
    Read & follow the instructions/details of About Profile First Aid: & do the necessary to Verify & Repair.

    Try opening System Preferences->Universal Access. In the middle of that preference pane is a contrast slider. Try adjusting that slider.
