I have just downloaded and installed the Mac OS X 10.7.3 (combo) thinking that this problem
was a software issue... and the uodate may reset or fix things.
Alas, the update made no difference... and so, I'm still unable to Calibrate the 27" iMac Display
All help and assistance most appreciated.
As a last resort, I performed a 'repair disk permissions' on the 27" iMac....
That process has appeared to fix the first part of my issues; the inability to 'Open Profile'
Therefore.... all profiles can be opened now.
However, the main issue remains;
On selecting the 'Calibrate' button - I'm given the error message;
"Can not calibrate the display
The factory profile for the display could not be found."
Can someone please help me.....
a) What is the said factory profile ?
b) How do I find and reinstate it ?
Hey, I also had my 2010 imac 27 screen replaced (because of dust behind the lcd. I cannot calibrate my screen any more. Doesn' matter what calibration I check off in the "color" pain, the main screen doesn't change. That being said, I can switch to any calibration (even one I've made with my spyder 3 elite) within Apple Aperture. What gives? have you had any success as of yet? I've tried trashing preference styles, and even tried to revert back to os 10.6 to reinstall 10.8.2 but 10.6 wouldn't accept my password to gain access!
I don't get the "can not calirate the display" warning at all. I do get a warning from my spyder that it cannot install, but the apple calibrator lets me save a setting but it makes no difference when I click on any setting within the control panel for monitors.
Very frustrating. At least I'm not the only one.
