Pink monitor screen

My nephew is having problem with a monitor he was given. It was working fine for the previous person (his uncle)but now the screen is pink!
Anyone help with this?

It's quite an old thread, but does it look familiar to the problem you are having?

If it's a CRT then one of the Ion Guns has gone AWOL and the screen is US.

A hard dunt with a Rubber Hammer has been known to cure this problem but don't open the case up as there are very high Voltages involved inside, ever after it has been disconnected from the Mains.

Thank you OTT_Buzzard, it was the cable.
