Re: magnet touched television screen
If this is a direct view CRT television, it should straighten itself out on its own after a few off on cycles as the internal degausing coils will pull the purity back. It may take 30 or 40 cycles to do this if its a CRT television. What is the model number of your set?

You can buy the screen from shopjimmy.com if they have any in stock. Usually you will not find the screen easily and even if you find, it is expensive. Its better to buy the new TV instead of investing money and wasting time. Replacing screen is also time consuming and not easy.
First, look for the source of the problem. Large speakers, especially
older ones, are the most common offenders. Notice the position of the blue spot on the screen (left, right, upper, lower, etc.) for an
indication of which direction the magnetic field is coming from.
If you think you have determined the source of the magnetic field, try
moving the object away from the television screen. If this does not
work, continue looking for other potential causes.
f you are unable to determine what is causing the magnetic field, try
moving the television. Sometimes magnetic interference can come from a
neighbor's equipment, especially in apartments and condos. Moving the
television to another part of the room, away from shared walls, may
If none of these techniques succeeds in removing or improving the
appearance of the blue spot, try to find if their is any demagnetizing coil button available in front of the TV panel , it may be symbol like magnet and a diagonal line on it
either burn in or magnetic field interference. I suggest moving any speakers away from the tv. if thats not the case, then find a strong magnet, make sweeping motions across the screen with it but dont touch the screen! Keep doing this until the colors change, then "sweep" them with the magnet into a corner and they will mostly dissapea.......r, sounds complicated but worked for me. can be scary so dont try unless sickly despearate or confident. Hope This helps!
I think you can get an orignal screen for your tv (if still available) at www.partstore.com or www.sears.com the parts dept !
Have make and model ready!

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.
