Looking for some help with what i think is a monitor calibration issue.
My monitor is a Eizo EV2336W, system is windows 7, using adobe products (PS, etc), also have a datacolor sypder. Within color management (windows) i have the ICC profile for the monitor, the Adobe RGB profile, and the profile calibrated by the Spyder. I'm mostly doing small print jobs in CYMK either digitally printed, or offset printed.
Irrespective of which profile i use; I'm ending up with to much magenta when printing compared to what i'm seeing on my monitor. For example; when picking a color that looks cobalt blue on my screen, when printing it will end up much more purple. Even a color that appears grey on the monitor will print with a red tint.
If i inspect the CYMK values, I can see that i'm ending up with to much in the M channel, but this is always being caused by what i think is the monitor configuration reducing the amount of red channel it is displaying.
I've tried endless settings between the monitor and color profiles in windows, and i can't seem to figure out how to correct it. If i increase the amount of red in the monitor it doesn't translate very well to correct for CMYK printing.
In the end, a CMYK value of (0,0,0,10) and (8,6,6,0) appear exactly the same, but print quite differently.
