The discoloration problem is due to the near by magnetic field appliances like speakers which are very near to monitors ... so what you have to do is just keep some distance to the monitor from the speakers and other magnetic appliances and then press menu button & just give degauss..
What parts were replaced, or cheap parts were used? More likely to be either bad caps in the power supply, or bad backlight inverter circuits, see failed VIEWSONIC monitors due to bad caps here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
5 years old, lamps are good for about 50 000 to 60 000 hours of life you would have to do the math based on average number of hours per week/month and see where your are, several things to check initially are inside look for blown capacitors, you can find images all over the net Google "blown capacitor image" and you will see what to look for. Next could be inverter failure as they get old and work pretty hard. Last the ccfl lamps may be dieing of old age like the florescent lamps in buildings, they get burnt at each of the ends and have a hard time lighting up. let me know what you find.
Either way, looks like a power supply problem to me, some Viewsonic screens are known to have a problem with their inner power supply card, If your screen is still under warranty I suggest you don't lose time analysing the problem and just make them come and fix/replace it
