SOURCE: green dot in middile of my screen

The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.

On the monitor is a button that looks like two arrows bending to wrap to each other. Press that button. That's the Auto Adjustment button. If that doesn't do it, push the menu button and work through the menus until you find where to adjust the size and position of the screen.

Hi my monitors screen becomes yellowish.all colour effected y dis

Do you have a CRT monitor?
Have you tried to adjust the color on the monitor?
How is it connected to your computer?
It sound like one of the guns on you monitor died. But there is some testing you should do first.
If it is a CRT monitor and it is connect your computer properly. First thing to do would be to replace the cable and or try a different monitor that you know works.
To confirm try adjusting the color. If that does not work, if it more purplish it is the green gun, if it is orangish it is the Blue gun. That would be cause by a failed gun or driver.
If the gun is gone it is best to get a new one. It will save you money in the long run.

Thank you...
