TFTs have 10-25% too much red, although its calib.

hi,

any advice what i could do if my TFT has too much red?

calibrated with this:
http://na.i1color.com/index.cfm/MenuItemID/126.htm

it think its not the best on the marked but good enough.

nearly every image i get from the lab as print from analog film has 10-20% less red in the skin colors compared to the image file on my screen. beginning from highend scans, also DigitalBack RAWs, finally the ISO-coated cmykproofs are more red, too. especially the skin tones.

i calibrated my 2 screens, the bigger one is better, the powerbook laptop screen is wrong though calibrated (sure i wont work on that), the 20" Apple Cinema Display is ok, but too much red.

how can i change it to lesser red, altough its already calibrated?
i use latest osx, maybe any sharware tool?

i can not alter the profile it seems...and i rented the Gretag One-eye 2, so its gone already.

earlier i worked at Viewsonics and Eizos in a studio, it seemed that every TFT showed a bit too much red there too , though calibrated well.

the only TFT which was neutral in colors and 100% perfect was the expensive from Quato: QUATO Intelli Color 213

thanks for your help
