Acer LCD monitor calibration

Stefano Vandelli , Nov 05, 2004; 02:56 p.m.

A fellow photographer friend of mine has recently purchased an ACER LCD monitor model AL1912 and he's having problems with the color management. I have calibrated the monitor using Adobe Gamma and the colour appear to be not far off, but all the prints are coming out "washy", both from his HP printer and from a Frontier. The problem is approximately equivalent to -20 saturation and +15 luminosity.

Any idea what could cause this? Could it have anything to do with the choice of phosphors?

Thanks for your help.

Forgot to mention, color space is sRGB all round.
