It's been doing that for about 3 months (at least that's what my dad says). So I gave it a good whack and it looked better, like normal. After turning the monitor off, and back on, the yellow tint on the entire screen is back, though sometimes goes back into correct colors on it's own.
Now all of the sudden I go to turn it on today and the monitor makes these wavy horiztical lines, than goes back to normal, than 15 mins later it goes bad again tinted yellow. Just before I went to write this to ask for help I turned the Pc on and the monitor now turns off and on over and over without showing anything on the screen. It's not the cable signal believe you me. I work with cables everyday and know it can't be the rgb cable. I've wiggled it around a million times, and cleaned off the pins to no adue. Please help us it's a CRT tube old style monitor, someone said to try moving the ram. But why? I guess I could try that. I can hear the Pc turn on fine over our speakers. You can hear the windows intro sound, and outdo sound when I force shutdown by holding the tower's power button which is the only way to turn the tower off and on since I can "see" anything.
But nothing more came of it when I went to turn it on the monitor tonight and the [bleep] thing just turns on, than off, on than off. Nothing on the screen, you can hear it turn on and off. & when the Pc tower is off it just goes from the green led symbol on the monitor, to the yellow symbol without power cycling itslelf. Weird...
How do I fix this? Or do I need to buy a new monitor?
