I had (actually still have) an old monitor that started behaving like
this. Taking off the back of the case and testing for loose connections
(do this VERY VERY CAREFULLY -- there's some big electricity in there)
showed that the connector which attaches to the multi-pin at the rear
end of the tube wasn't making a perfect connection so that one of the
colour lines was internittently on/off. I never managed to get it to
connect perfectly.

Not that I'm recommending you do this -- for safety, and also because
you're under warranty and if that's the problem then it's the shop's
problem and not yours.

Best wishes,
