Exclamation Monitor Problem

I have an old monitor and the screen is unclear as soon as you turn it on but after about an hour it clears off. What might be the prob?

Have you tried Degaussing it?

Degaussing is the re alignment of the three beams at the back of your monitor (inside the monitor case of course). Sometimes, these three beams , consisting of a red, green, and blue light, get out of line and the make the screen appear over greeny, or dull red. Degaussing simply realigns these three beams.

If you have an onscreen display for your monitor, try finding the option, but if your monitor is old, it will not have onscreen display.
