Grays have a pink tint

I have this issue that all grays are shown tinted pink:

The whites are fine as you can see on the photo in the “L” slider of the HSL color control.

I am using Ubuntu 21.10 64-bit with Gnome version 40.4.0 under X11.

My graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 using the nvidia-driver-470.

The display is connected using HDMI. I tried different display and cables, but it did not change anything.

Resolution is set to 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz, but the issue is independent of the resolution.

This issue does not appear with the nouveau driver using otherwise the same setup.

Any ideas?

Might be color subsampling or HDMI limited range. Or a broken ICD set. Or something completely different.
Please check the color profile set. Please run as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post.

I don’t know how to check the color profile set (will try to read up about it) but I attached the nvidia-bug-report.log.gz.

gnome control center → color

Looks like you ran the script while switched to vt so the outputs of
nvidia-settings -q all
xrandr --verbose
are empty.

Probably because I ran it after “su -”. I just attached a new log that was created using sudo which should look better.

I tried enabling all three available profiles and also tried disabling the magenta switch, but I did not notice any color changes.

View details is somehow not available for those profiles.

Please try clicking on the “SONY TV *00 Monitor” line at the top, then Add Profile, and then selecting “Colorspace: sRGB”. That will override the color calibration settings from the monitor and disable the color adjustments.
