There aren't any other problems I see yet but I'll try the pot thing, even though I'm a little confused what you meant with rotating the monitor.

If it is something else like the flyback or the caps or even the yoke, I'm wondering if it's even worth repairing or just replace the screen. It's 19 inch screen, but I dont know how much screens can go for, or parts and/or repair services. Despite my technical knowhow, I'd rather not mess about with the screen.
