The image has a mustard yellow tint to it. Now, I've managed to track down the problem to it's source.. The cable linked to my tower has a short in it somewhere (specifically near where it connects into the tower). It appears that my monitor isn't receiving any information for blue color, basically.
Now, if I bend the cable at a 90 degree angle where the short appears to be, the color comes in fine. I don't exactly want to wrap a rubber band around the cable to keep in bent though, for obvious reasons. Admittedly, my monitor is a champ, going on eight years now. It's probably time to put the old thing out of its misery and get a new one (poor thing is suffering from incontinence).
Anyways, to the question: The cable doesn't plug into the back of my monitor, it's quite attached. Would it be possible to rewire the cable to get another year or two out of this monitor? Should I just go ahead and bend it, and hope it lasts me another month or two til I can purchase a replacement? Should I buy it some Depends?
