Cintiq 22HD Can't Reach 100cd/m2

Postby spiffiness » Wed 24. Apr 2019, 18:15

I am trying to calibrate my Cintiq with the Colormunki Display calibrator and I can't get it to reach 100cd/m2 to match my other monitor despite the specs saying it's 250cd/m2. The highest it goes is around 95. It's connected by DVI to my NVidia card. I swear it used to be brighter! Any idea on how to fix this? I've already tried resetting the display settings but it didn't help.

To clarify, according to my information, the factory brightness spec for Cintiq 22HD is 210cd/m2 typically.
The Cintiq 22 LCD is backlit with LED technology which will become dimmer with usage. Seems that your maximum brightness has decayed over 50% which normally indicates that it was already used for many, many hours.

Here is an interesting article on this subject:

If you feel that your display is dimmer than it should be at this point, please contact our support and have your device checked -
