There's no fix for that here. You need to take it to the shop. But of course they will charge you more than it's worth to fix it. So you're much better off just getting another monitor.

Now that's what I call a sticky situation

You need a new monitor. You can get some reasonably good LCD monitors these days for a reasonable price,

If this CRT monitor is over five years old, which almost certainly is, the best thing to do is to give it an honourable death at your local recycling depot.

When a CRT monitor is dark at startup and gradually gets brighter, this is a strong indication that the CRT is bad. You need a new monitor.
