I have been using the XB271HU A for a few years and didn't really have any issues until yesterday when I picked up a XB283K KV. The colors on these 2 monitors are so far apart it is actually more of an annoyance to have 2 monitors as it is so off putting. The left is the XB27 and the right is the XB28. It is mostly the whites that are different but also some of the blues, so I used excel for demonstration.

    Quite common. And unfortunately quite subjective to the viewer in side by side comparisons like this. Not a quantitatively exact adjustment. The factory calibration for the xb283k is probably better than the old monitor.  Google search the keywords calibration & xb271hu if you want to try to change its factory calibration to more closely match the new monitor from you perspective.

    It might be a cable issue..   Remove all the cables from monitor.   Press and hold the power button of monitor for 1 min.    Connect all the cables back.  Try to turn on the monitor.   Connect the monitor to computer and check.  If the cable is non removable please don't try to remove it. 

    Please remove the cable between monitor and computer.     Try to connect it back and check.    If possible try to use an alternative cable and check.  

    If the problem persists try to use an alternative power cable and display cable and check.    Try to bypass the surge protector and connect the monitor directly to power outlet.    Try to connect monitor on a different power outlet or surge protector and check.  

    On the monitor – use the control buttons.   There will be an option to reset monitor settings to default.    Try to reset the monitor and check.  

    To isolate the issue, try to use the same monitor to a different computer and check  or  Try to use an alternative monitor on this computer and check.

    Yes, choose one and tweak it to best match the other. Don't try to calibrate to any standard, just to where they look the same.
