Greenish tint from Dell branded 19" Trinitron monitor?

  • Hi,
     
    I was noticing that the display on the montior of my Dimension 4100 has started having a greenish tint.  It's a Dell branded Sony Trinitron monitor:
     
    DISPLAY, MULTISCAN, COLOR, 19, DUAL, P991, DA0-GSA
     
    Is there a way to adjust the green (which I am apparently unable to locate), or is my monitor simply getting ready to give up the ghost?
     
    Thanks,
     
    Thos.
  • Degauss a few times as shown here, wait 15 minutes between tries. Try first. Set will hum loud for 2 seconds, that is normal.

    Try the self test, see if the red/green/ blue are there:

    If that looks ok, the PC video card is suspect, try monitor with another pc. Make sure no pins are bent in the cable end.
