Hi timber.........speakers will cause colouring on monitors or other magnetic sources.

timber, Speakers would have no noticeable effect after shut down, But the power surge is worrying, has any other component of your PC suffered?

Power surge may have damaged monitor or graphics card, if the display is ok when you are switched on, then I would think card is un-damaged, try a degauss of the monitor ans see if that helps.

How old is monitor? and does the screen stay that colour permanently after switching off or is it while the screen is in standby mode?

monitor is about ten years old.

happens only when on standby

timber, I am not a technician, so this is only an opinion.

It does seem as though the power surge has caused some damage, but if the monitor works ok in use, then I would carry on using it, you will cause no harm.

At ten years of age the monitor has seen it's best and if you do purchase a new one you will notice a big difference in viewing pleasure.
