had this happen with a Sony Viao CRT monitor once ... it died. I had to buy a new one ... however it did last for quite a few months before it finally "faded to black".

All CRT monitors have three electron guns in them that are responsible for three colors: red, green, and blue. When one of these guns goes bad, it's color is not reproduced and you get the effect you're reporting. It sounds as if your red gun has gone bad. Intermittently at first, but now it sounds more permanent. Even if it does come back it will not stay.

Unfortunately, it's not cost effective to repair a CRT monitor anymore. Time for a new one.

The problem can also sometimes be caused by a bad cable. If you can remove it from the monitor, you might try another cable before replacing the monitor.
