Default Is there anyway to fix lines through a CRT monitor?

My Sony Trinitron has 2 lines going across it. Their not actually that bad and are pretty much unnoticeable in games. But when surfing the web they get annoying.

Also I have a dot on the screen. Kinda looks like a dead pixel but I thought crt couldn't get dead pixels, so what could it be?
The screen is smooth so it can't be a whole unless its inside.

Hello,

Do these two lines appear to be vertically across the screen?

...Try lowering or highering your monitor's refresh rate in display settings.

...As with the black dot, there may be something on the inner side of the screen.

If the line is running horizontal across the very top and bottom, it's normal. Those two wires, some have three, are stabalizing wires. They are, I think, on top of the aperture grill. Nothing you can do about it.

I concur, My ilyama had two of these wires that gave faint but noticiable horizontal lines at about 1/5 and 4/5 or the screen... now I have LCD

All trinitrons have those lines, and yes they are very annoying.
