for some reason the top half of my monitor is much brither than the bottom half. i dont know why, i only discovered this today, also when i would turn off my monitor for like an hour or so and turn it back on, the bottom half would have a slight red tint to it. monitor is samsung syncmaster t220

Double check your connections. It sounds like the display is going bad. You could try it on another device if that's an option just to be sure.

Sounds to me like the backlight partially going out. Your monitor is over 10 years old after all.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
