If its just a loose connector thats an easy fix, so double check it before you recycle the monitor. Its also possible that its the video card, but swapping monitors will confirm that. If your spare monitor turns pink then its a problem in the PC. I'd be very surprised if that happens though, my moneys on the old CRT being the culprit.
You are right. I'm using a different monitor now.
