Don't let him repair the monitor by himself - there is a VERY deadly capacitor in Cathode Ray Tube monitors that if you touch it you will die from the overload of electricity.

My OS features preemptive multitasking, a fully interactive command line, & support for 640K of RAM!

lol... i dont think most people would consider fixing a tv/monitor themselves... but your right.... the discharge would hurt like a mofo.... so if you really really want to look at ur monitor... let it sit down unplug for a 2 or so hours to let it discharge... but again u shouldnt be opening ur monitor.

try the monitor on another computer, or try a different graphics card.

if it still does it, get the monitor repaired or replaced.

Sounds like a dodgey colour gun.
When a gun dies, all you get are the other colours.
