Screen Gone "Yellowish" Colour, Appears that Blue colour is not working
For some reason, when the monitor is turn on after 6 hours of rest or more, the monitor screen will turn yellowish just after a few minutes it is turned on. It looks like there are only yellow and red colour, without blue colour. It will keep yellowish in a while. If it is keep turning on for half and hour or more, it will become normal again. However, this will not happen after the monitor is working a long hours.
Is this something wrong with the components inside?

Here is a list of reasons why colours on electronic designs might differ from printed designs:
Monitors work in the RGB (Red,Green,Blue) colour space while printers use the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour space. Designs look fine on a monitor if they are designed in RGB to begin with. Converting them to CMYK might make them look odd on screen, but they will print correctly, to a certain measure. It is difficult to sign of an image file that is currently in CMYK mode while viewing with an RGB monitor.
Monitor settings differ. The designer was sitting in a darkish room when choosing the blue and his blue looks vibrant. The client was viewing the same design in a well-lit room, making the blue seem lighter. The designer uses an LCD display and the client uses a CRT monitor and the vibrancy differs. The contrast and saturation settings on each monitor might differ as well, rendering the blue with different values.
Each printer in the world prints colour slightly different. Sometimes it is really obvious and sometimes it is almost impossible to see the difference. Normal desktop printers are definitely not something to do colour proofing with. If you print the design out on your desktop printer then a slight shortage on any of the colours will make the colour come out wrong. There are a lot of factors that can influence even the most expensive printing equipment. These include altitude, humidity, the current heat of the printer, age of the printer, quality of ink, the paper that is being used, special coatings on the paper etc. Even viewing the same printed material in different lighting conditions may make the colour seem different.
Tips on getting the most accurate colour Go to your nearest printer company and ask to see their Pantone colour matching system. Each colour in the Pantone chart has a matching number. Most design applications have the same Pantone charts built in so that colour matching is easy. Read up on Pantone at Wikipedia. Make sure that the file is converted to CMYK (If not designed in it originally) before sending it to print. Some printer companies might ask for colour separation prints which the leading design packages can produce. It is also important for the designer to choose the correct colour management profile in the design package.
Hi, 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.
pin no 1 - Red colour signal (Red colour wire)
pin no 2 - Green colour signal (Green colour wire)
pin no 3 - Blue colour signal (Blue colour wire)
4&5 Not connected
pin no 6&7&8 are (Grounds)RGB Returns
pin 13 Hohizontal sync signal
pin no 14 vertical sync signal
Not nessasry other pins
The screen colour changing is apparently an auto test procedure on the monitor and was prompted by a fault with the monitor not automatically shutting down when the computer is shut down. The settings on the monitor have been adjusted to rectify this and the problem is now gone.
