Monitor fades

By ladysea ·
The monitor fades to yellow, and stays awhile, then back to white. Sometimes flutters from white to beige. How do I find or fix it? Everything seems to be working properly.

It's time for a new monitor.

What is happening is that either the drive circuit for the blue CRT gun, or the blue CRT gun itself is failing.

This is NOT a user repairable item.

Before replacing your monitor, try removing the display connector from the PC and spraying a good quality contact cleaner on both the video card and monitor connectors.
Then, make sure that the connector is fully seated when they are reassembled.

With new 17" CRT monitors going for around $100 (US) it may not be economical to repair your monitor.
