The TV needs to be degaussed.

There is an automatic degausser built in but it may NOT be strong enough.

Try this: Turn off the TV and let cool for 10 minutes. Then turn on for one minute.

Repeat the previous sequence until screen is clear of blotches.

The cooling period re-arms the degausing circuit.

If this doesn't fix it adequately, you need to find a TV repairman that has a degausing coil... these are getting a bit rare now. It would take him ten minutes with the coil to fix it.

Kids ran magnet across screen


Magnets do not affect LCD screens.
If your screen is a CRT monitor then a magnet will cause this problem.
Try turning off the monitor and back on several times and the degaussing coils on the monitor may fix this problem. If the screen is still discolored then take your monitor to a TV repairer and they can degauss your monitor with a more powerful degaussing tool.

Samsung 32" LED TV Purple Line Horizontally across top of screen


Can you please change the input device to some other you know, works? If you do not notice any problem there, look for the aerial cable going close to any power line or has interference from some other transmissions of any kind nearby.

I have yellow and purple blotches on screen


I had this same problem on my Mitsubishi rear projection WD52527 model television. The optic engine was changed twice, and the blotches were still there. It turned out that it was the mirror inside the television that was causing the purple blotches. It was filthy and once the repairman took it out and cleaned it the discolorations were gone. Hope this helps

Purple blotch on screen


hi..This patch can be a result of your TV 's Auto Degaussing
Coil problem. Metallic parts of a TV gets magnetized and the
ADG coil demagnetizes them. At power on you should hear a
sound,which is the ADG coil.please check the ADG coil connector
it might have been pulled out. The ADG coil is wrapped around securely
on your TV's Picture tube and power is tapped directly from the AC
Main via a plug in type connector to the TV main circuit board.
check it out..
thank u..

Purple blotches on Mitsubishi WD 52527


yes you can clean it. i clean mine all the time. after you remove the screws at the bottom you should be able to just lift it up. it will be hard be cause there is sticky tape with a hinge that the hole screen sould just lift off. i know it doesnt feel like it but it will. just do one side at a time. now the problem with the purple spots are because you move a speaker to close to the front of the tv the was not shielded and cause it to do this. you can move the tv so that the earths magnetic field will restore it for you. make sure the tv is not plugged in when you move it for 2 to 3 days . after the 2 to 3 days plug tv back in and leave on for 2 hours. after this you can move it back and plug back in. this should fix it. if not you will need it to be degoudged. tv repair center can do this at your home. hope this help you.... thanks eddy

Sony screen discoloration


Assuming this is a CRT monitor.

Try using the Degauss setting on the monitor buttons. You may have to do it a couple of times.

This could be also due to a fluorescent lamp or other monitor too close.

I accidently held a magnet up to my TV screen and its busted up. How do I fix it?


Magnets and projection screens do not mix well. When you say `busted up` it could mean a few things.

If it means blotches of color on the screen
-Caused when your projection TV becomes magnetized.
Fix:
-Use a strong magnetic coil and make circular motions around your projection TV screen starting on the upper left corner.
-Increase the size of the circles you're making until you've covered the entire screen. Slowly move away from the screen; continuing to make circular motions with the magnet.
-When the magnet loses contact, the color blotches should be gone.

hope this helps

Purple blotches


Ok, so I'm about to flip a lid with my TV. I am showing purple quater sized blotches all over my screen. I bought it for a discounted price because of this issue, in hopes i could fix it. I took the back panel off the TV. ( about a 6in * 6 in plate) removed the light bulb and cleaned the bulb and lens, where the light bulb faced. I used a dust cleaner and special cloth. NOTHING! I took the entire front screen off cleaned it and then cleaned the mirror and second lens.... NOTHING! Then i heard that dusk sometimes gathers behind the lens and that should be cleaned. Try this, Its 4 screws, just be careful and remember the way you took it out, because it has to be replaced the same way.
