iiYAMA monitor problem

I have a iiYAMA "Vision Master 17" monitor. This is a problem I've been chasing for some time now. The best way I can describe the effect is that periodicaly object will appear on the screen with their assiciated colouring displaced or smearing to the right hand side. A sort of ghosting effect. I've replaced the VGA cable and even tried different graphics cards but the problem still remains. I've witnesed the same effect on a iiYAMA monitor at my place of work. When the fault is present I can temporarily cure it by just wiggling the VGA cable around but it will always re appear. If I push against front of the monitor gently causing it to rock for a second or two the effect varies in intensity. It's almost like some kind of earthing problem. The only way I can permanently fix the problem is to use A VGA to the five BNC connector input.
This is all very well but I have two computers and it would be nice to take advantage of both inputs to the monitor. Has anyone else experienced this problem with iiYAMA CRT monitors?

I've had a couple of these monitors but not seen or heard of this problem - is it still under warranty by any chance? (they usually some as standard with a 3-year on-site warranty).

... that should have read "come as standard.."

Thanks for input but as I said in my first posting I've seen this effect on more than one monitor, The one I use at home and one that is in use at my place of work.

As the same effect sometimes happens for you at work, look for coincidences or actions that you take in both places.

For instance:

I have a wrist band with magnets in it.

Some speakers are badly shielded.

I believe that the Remote Car Key may be able to cause a such problem
