I have a discolouration mark on the screen that I believe was cused by holding a dvd on pause for too long. It has been suggested that I degausse the screen. Can this be done?

depends on what type of tv it is , if its a cathode ray tube tv then yes you can, if its a lcd or plasma then no you cant, you could try a program called pixel protector on the latter two types of tv, this will play white noise continuously on your tv to try to make the pixels rest , there is no guarantee that it will work, but worth a shot at least

900 hours and I am seeing some image retention. How to remove them?

In a few words, you can't.
Panasonic Plasma Screens have a movement option that slowly moves the screen around a few milimetres
I the burning is bad and all you can see is Sky TV's frames or Sport frames, the way to reduce the effect, and this is official, is to turn up the screen brightness on a white background. This will burn the rest of the screen to a similar level!
Unbelievable but having done that for a number of hours, when one increases the brightness to compensate for a burnt screen, it is slightly better.
(I do not advocate that, I would not let it burn in the first place.)

Good luck
Hope that helps.

CRT discoloured

If it's a deguass problem, you can glue some very small magnets to the sides of the crt tube itself, it could be the shadow mask, inside the monitor, and if it is then nothing will fix it, if you can get a deguass coil from somewhere that would tell the story real quickly
