Everything on the screen that should be black in color is now

\015 Everything that should be black in color is now red with red also coming out in different places\015

Answers :

If the monitor is a CRT, then there is not much you can do. The guns are in misalignment. If you do have one and want it fixed, then take it in for repair. If you open a monitor and try to adjust the phosphorous guns, it can kill you.

If it is an LCD, just get a new one because unless it is under warranty, it's just not worth it.
Reseat the monitor to computer plug or try a different monitor.
