  1. I have a sony trinitron 17'' CRT monitor. Of late i have noticed a 1 cm strip from the left to to middle has a discoloration. What could be the cause?

    do you have any magnetic devices near the monitor like speakers, fridge magnets etc? remove them.

    try the degaussing feature on your monitor

    check the cable is fixed on securly, and drivers if any used is up to date.

    I am guessing that monitor is a few years old. what you are describing is what happens when sony trinitrons start their downhill slide to eventuall complete failure. from my experience this starts when the monitor is about 3-4 years old.

    if that is the case with yuors then I would suggest shopping for a new monitor.

    Get a new monitor! Had the same problem with this same monitor at work. It started out the same way you describe, eventually the entire screen would turn red then cut off. It finally died.
