Who knows about video problems on CRT TVs?

I have a 20-year old 19" RCA CRT TV. Lately the video fades in and out, like the contrast keeps changing. If I bang on the case or wiggle where the cable connection is, it sometimes will steady the video, but will soon resume changing back and forth. There is no regularity to the flickering - sometimes it changes rapidly making it seem like a disco strobe, other times it will stay sharp for a while, change to a faded video for a while, or any combination of these. Although I never lose the video completely, I find this quite annoying. The audio is not affected. Any idea what would cause this?

:confused: Being that it is a 20 year old TV, I would tend to suspect worn out parts.
