What color space are you editing the document you pasting into. Have you tried different color spaces to see it that make any difference. Also try assigning a color space to the document your editing to see if that makes a difference. Assign Color Profile not convert to profile. I find I have to Assign sRGB at times. I have many versions of Photoshop installed and I do recall which version of Photoshop I may need to do that assign profile for of what color space I may have been editing in. I just know that I have had to do that some times when I notice colors look off.

Assign the monitor profile. Then convert to sRGB.
A screenshot is in monitor color space. It has already been remapped for display, and the RGB values recalculated.
You only get the same reading if monitor profile and document profile are identical - which they normally shouldn't be.
Thanks for your responses. However, I've had no trouble with the colors of a pasted screenshot until the past week. I'll read up on color spaces.
You guys are wonderful! I figured it out with using the color spaces and all's OK. I must have switched the profiles without knowing it, and that's where the change came from.
