The I and Q bars are not important, since (virtually) nobody uses YIQ encoding anymore.

Calibration info (this calibrates the interface; it does not calibrate other aspects of the monitor):

Try:
Take a color image and de-saturate it completely in Ppro. Does this image appear perfectly black and white on the monitor? (Without color casts.) You can try using the color corrector to introduce color casts to train yourself so you know what to look for.

Also try:
With the B&W image, try calibrating the gain and bias settings under "user color" and "Color temp/bal".

2- Used monitors can be sketchy if they have image flaws. Some flaws are not worth fixing (just get a new monitor), and some flaws can't be fixed (overused phosphors cause color casts). Returning the monitor may be the best bet?

Never, ever buy a used monitor. Colors go out of wack with age.
I would have recommended that you buy a new version of the Sony.
Years ago, we compared it with other monitors and there was a radical difference.
The sony monitors are the industry standard in broadcast. Mine is 12 years old.
The investment was worth it.
