Windows 7: Is it normal for LED monitor to look whitewashed?

Is it normal for LED monitor to look whitewashed?

Had a power outage yesterday. Screwed up my old LCD. Could only find LED replacement. Canada’s best deal on Lg 20M37 19.5 Led Lcd Monitor 20M37 19 - First one looked whitewashed. Exchanged it for another of the same thinking it was defective but the new one is the same thing. Whitewashed. Is there any way to get blacks more black or is this normal for LED? Brightness & contrast dont do what I trying for.

This doesn't make sense b/c monitor/TV on top is LED as well and isn't whitewashed.

I dont think its supposed to look like this but had to ask because this this is TWO LG monitors both looking whitewashed.

Also look at the wall on the left side of picture 3 & 4. That reminds me of the days of the old 256 color display when the same image is stretched across both monitors.

Picture 1&2 are of the actual displays while picture 3&4 are a PHOTO of my displays in windows picture viewer stretched across the two bottom displays.

It looks worse in person than my camera is allowing me to capture. Is LG just a garbage brand name as this is 2 LG monitors both doing the same?

Bottom left = LED LG 20M37 om DVI
Bottom right = LCD Samsung Syncmaster 941BW on VGA
Top = LED RCA Rled2845a on HDMI

The 2 bottom monitors on are one video card VGA and DVI while the HDMI TV on top is on HDMI of a 2nd video card. This should be irrelevant though since the old monitor was fine but just mentioning it anyway.

If you bring up the color black for the whole display does it have white all over it? Seems like super back light bleed, but also could be your settings have you checked to make sure it's not in its reading mode?

Looks like the GAMMA is way out. Try calibrating the monitor after installing drivers for the monitor. See the CD that came with it. No LG monitors are some of the best performing image wise. Try swapping the cables over and see if the distortion swaps too. If it does then uninstall your graphics card drivers and reinstall them using a clean install.

Took the second LG LED monitor back and got my money back. Got a used **NON** LED Samsung Syncmaster 920WM with speakers sand it works great. Its also a close match to my Syncmaster 940BW that I already had for the secondary. All looks great in the display monitor front now :)

Glad you got something your happy with in the end. It was probably gamma though as Tony had suggested.
