all TV's and Monitors eventually give up the ghost.

You can be sure you are left with just two choices when it happens.

1. Find a replacement which can work with the computer (more difficult as time goes by).

2. Modify the computer to use newer technology (AKA us the V9990 card and connect a modern monitor it can support). Or maybe use a scart converter to TV's which have this support (I would note that scart here in Australia is not often seen on modern TVs like LCD/LED).

It all depends how much you are willing to invest to fix the old tube. Everything is repairable.
Expanding on my answer to @ComSoft6128, here's a video of how the guns are replaced in expensive or rare crt tubes:

Not a simple process!

It was stressful watching that - I was waiting for him to not lift a tube high enough and whack the neck on the rings he was using to hold them...

On that subject, I have a PC monitor that give a greenish picture at boot, but the colours gradually come back after 20 minutes or so warming up. Would a rejuvenation help me with that problem?

No, but a complete electrolytic capacitor replacement would.
