My picture was distorted by a speaker magnet

A few days ago my cats were scratching my friend's guitar amp. not thinking, i placed the amp on a table next to my tv. when i removed the amp, there was a green blob in the upper left corner of my screen. the only temp. solution i could find is placing a magnet on the back of the TV. when i move it, the green spot returns. is there a way i can fix this?

Well , yes , you have to purchase a DEGAUSSING COIL to take care of this problem and know how to use it (which its very easy) available at electronic stores (try EBAY) What you do is you place the DEGAUSSING COIL in front of the color spot and do circular motions while slowly stepping away from it . that should take care of that.

I have sound but have a black screen with a horizontal line across it


your picture tube may be malfunctioning -- all of the information for the screen is being squished into that horizontal line. If this is the case, you can buy a new picture tube and install it, but that would be the only fix. the only other thing I can think of that might cause this issue would be if you have a large speaker next to your TX. The magnet from a large speaker can distort the television, but it usually gives you a funny green distortion near the magnet without killing your whole screen so it seems unlikely that this is your problem.

Fix a color problem


What you want to do is degauss the tube.
I do not believe a supplier will sell a CRT to anyone thats not a TV Tech. Safety/liability issues. The CRT is vacuum sealed and will implode if broken and the tv has 25000 volts even after unplugged for several days !!!
A CRT may cost as much as a new tv.

Several methods some people have found useful are;

Soldering Gun Method (NOT soldering iron)

1. Hold the soldering gun to that the rear of the case is toward the screen (the tip is facing away from the screen at a 90 degree angle) A magnetic field is generated by the transformer in the handle.
2. Place the gun in the center of the screen and turn it on, keeping it near but not touching the screen (to prevent scratching)
3. Slowly move it to the top edge (or any edge), then slowly around the outer part of the screen (but still in front of the glass) until you return to the top (or the edge you moved out to), again slowly return the gun to the center of the screen.
4. Keeping the gun on, slowly pull it straight away from the crt until there is no more distortion visible (usually 3-4 feet), then turn the gun off.

Rigged Drill Method ( parts can fly off so take care)

1. Get a magnet and tape it to the end of a high RPM drill and make sure it is held in place very tightly, use Duct or packing tape
2. Hold the rigged drill next to the spot to be fixed, make sure it is about 1-2 inches away from the screen
3. Now pull the trigger an you'll see the screen blur fast, this is normal so do not worry
4. Whilst the drill is running, slowly pull away from the screen and you may see it is fixed
5. This process may need to be repeated due to magnet strength and drill speed but it will work
6. Due to physics the fast, random turning of the magnet/s will fix the screen's colors

TV KOLIN 21"


hello.... do you have any speakers near your television? what color is the circle your talking about? Do the green,pink colors are scattered all over the screen and specially on the corners?
If you have or had speakers near your tv? then do this try to get a magnet.a magnet on a speaker would do.what you have to do is to place the magnet near the screen of the tv approx. above the green,pink color (turn it on first).you will notice the that the color will react with the magnet try to pull it on the side you will notice that the green,pink color is moving on the same direction do it until its gone.NOTE make sure youll not scratch the screen ok.email me what happened. jaredreyesbalderama@yahoo.com GOODLUCK

Picture problems


First thing I would try is a degaussing coil. The problem was not caused by the speakers in the TV (they are magnetically shielded) but by some kind of external magnetic field, like speakers or refrigerator magnets. Could also explain the picture shift, if it's severe enough and someone used a strong magnet.
You can find degaussing coils here:

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/72-790

They usually come with some basic instructions. You can also make your own and instructions for using one can be found at the same place:

After a household power blips during bad weather, we have horizontal lines ....


Unfortunately there isn't any way to repair your tv as the magnet has distorted the tube that is in the tv and with CRT becoming obsolete the repair is likely to be very costly so probably your chaepest option is to buy a new tv .

Orion standard tv


Have you had any kind of magnets close to the tv set? I had a brand new sanyo do the same thing. I had pulled the speaker box out of my truck and stood it up next to the tv (not thinking about where I put it). Turned it on a few hours later only to see a messed up picture. I moved the speaker box to get behind the tv and the picture got better. Moved the speaker box back to the truck and after a couple of days the picture was back to normal. These were 4 large magnets on these speakers. Maybe I helped some!

Color "burn" in corner


well i think this is caused by a magnetic field created by your speaker. is the speaker the same location for that color burn (lower left corner)? the only way to get rid of that is to remove your speaker or changed it. for all i know speakers used in tv's are magnetically shielded to prevent distortion in the CRT, because their location is usually near the crt. good luck!
