Illustrator eyedropper picking inaccurate, lighter color

New Here ,

Whenever I use the the eyedropper tool, it won't pick the exact color I selected, but a shade lighter.  I've tried this on a veriety of files and it's always the same.  I played around with all the color profiles to see if anything worked, but it hasn't.  This used to not be a problem, I could get exact matches of the color I selected (years ago), but not any more.  

 

Please help!

When I copied and pasted a screen shot of this screen, it actually miraculously worked just now.  But hadn't a few seconds earlier.  Then in tried to import a file that I had that had a different profile and got this warning...  but both options didn't work perfectly.  The preserve color numbers worked better.  Is there anything else I can do to get it to be perfect?

Hello @Kdesign29,

 

Sorry for the delayed response. I hope the suggestions shared by Ton and Ares helped resolve the problem. If not, kindly try recalibrating your display monitor(s) for sRGB (Windows / macOS), rebooting your computer, and then relaunching Illustrator to check if it helps.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav
