1) Hook your box up to your freind's monitor using his video cable if that is possible.. If red is missing, then its the video graphics card/chip thats the problem. If your box has a video card then that needs to be replaced. The external connector for a separate video card is always on the lower half at the backside of the compter case. Integrates graphics (built into the motherboard) will always have its video connector placed in the upper half at the back of your compter's case.
2) If the video looks good, substitute your video cable for his. If red is missing then its your cable. Be sure to test the cable for continuity/discontinuity by flexing it a bit around either end. Don't be timid about flexing it firmly but not drastically. If red is missing or flashes in and out then its the cable.
3) If everything looks fine at your friend's place then its your monitor that is hosed.
