My monitor turns yellowish i can still work what is the problem.
the monitor is a Acer V233H
The red "gun" of your CRT monitor is going bad. You will need to get a new monitor, and you should seriously consider an LCD flat screen. It will save you allot in electricity.
A CRT monitor is a very cool piece of technology inside... even though they are going obsolete with the advent of modern LCD displays.
In every CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitor, there is a trio of "Electron Guns"- they fire electrons at the front of the screen, hitting it with billions upon billions of electrons... the "bullets". Each gun is aimed at a set of colored targets, called "pixels"... one gun hits red ones, one for green, and one for blue. Combinations of these colors make up everything we can see.
When the red "gun" cannot fire enough electron "bullets" at the screen, the blue and green together make the picture appear yellowish.
If you want to learn more, look up "cathode ray tube" on wikipedia for starters!
A word of warning- the technology is very cool (I used to teach how CRT screens worked as part of my job teaching Missile fire control radar for the Navy), BUT:
THERE ARE VERY HIGH VOLTAGES INSIDE A CRT MONITOR THAT CAN KILL!!! DO NOT OPEN
Remember- the electron "guns" inside are shooting billions and billions of electrons at the front of the screen. They are being collected from the screen by a high voltage "supply". Most CRT's operate with anywhere from 15 to 45 THOUSAND VOLTS!
