Hi, I use Photoshop Elements 7 and am getting an error message that reads 'The monitor profile "LG IPS235y" appears to be defective. Please rerun your monitor calibration software.' I am then given to options to either 'Ignore Profile' or 'Use Anyway'. I print photographs so want to set my screen to best do that. I am connected via HDMI and the mode is sRGB. I have tried contacting LG who said: 'This is due to the calibration of the boards in the monitor not being deemed suitable by the software you use, you would need to contact those responsible for the software your using and enquire on calibration settings for the integration between the two.' Any suggetions?

It has nothing to do with the board, and does appear to have a lot to do with the faulty profile provided by the display.

But you can probably correct it using the OS display calibration tools, or setting the display profile to sRGB or Adobe RGB (whichever is closest to the gamut of your display).
