I doubt you will be able to fix it yourself unless the canned air works or you find a loose connection or something obvious inside (unlikely)

On a side note. My dad just put his new mobile (silver motarola thing) ontop of my monitor and as it checked the network the monitor had a fit, I worry for my fathers brains.
Depending on age of his monitor there is one part that can go out
that will cause the exact same symptoms as a bad tube.
It will likly be white gray blue black somethign of that nature.
It will have 3 plastic knobs on it with a slit in the midle for a insulated screw drive i put that in bold because thisa is part of the high voltage controls and close to the high voltage in some monitors.
What this thing controls is the color guns if it goes oul in whole or in part the picture freeks out.
Its a easy fix if you can find the part and you may also beable to crank up the power to the red and gain a bit of life out of it.
I dont recomend cranking it up though as you could damage the tube if you do.
Once you find a replacement for it its conected by 3 plugs one for each gun generaly located near the pic toobs back.
The dragon was here
