Hi - Your monitor has a built in degaussing feature that executes every time you turn the monitor on. To perform extra degaussing, turn your your monitor off for at lest 30 minutes then turn it back on. This will cause it do a more thorough degaussing as opposed to just turning your monitor off and then turning it right back on. If this answered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

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.

The display shows the magnet


Remove the monitor from power for more than 10 minutes and then put it on again, the automatic degaussing circuit that built in the monitor should resolve your problem but make sure the monitor is away from magnet or powerful speakers.

When i turn on my tv, the screen has like rainbow color all over it. i found out if you hold a magnet up to the screen, the color moves if you move the magnet. no picture of anything,,just color i...


To fix this, you need to do something called degaussing. You should keep magnets away from the screen in the future, because they cause this problem.
The first thing to try is to turn it on and off, making sure that all magnets and speakers (which have magnets in them) are kept far away from it. This will activate the monitor's auto-degausser if it has one. If this does not help, this guide: http://www.wikihow.com/Degauss-a-Computer-Monitor gives a couple solutions, including using a soldering gun (not a soldering iron), illustrated in the video below:
With a powerdrill:

Or investing about 60 bucks in a degaussing coil like this which is a guaranteed fix:
One other trick that might work is to take an old CRT monitor ("fat-screen" rather than "flat-screen"), hold it up to the tv screen to screen, and turn it on and off to have the monitor use its own degausser. The monitor may have a button to activate degaussing, or it may be in the menu you can bring up with the buttons on the bottom of the screen.
If you don't want to deal with any of this, a tv repair shop will degauss your tv for you quickly.

Dell XPS M1210 laptop was set next to a speaker and now the bottom half of the screen is grey


It's due to the magnetic field interferences from the speaker. At the first place, you shouldn't keep it near the speakers.


Always keep speakers far away from the Monitor.Now turn off the monitor and turn it on again,hope it solve the problem. You may even need to restart the system.

Moving magnetic fields (such as from an electric motor) can cause flickering when near a CRT screen. A static magnetic field, such as from your computer's speakers, can cause color shifts or incorrect colors in the area near the magnet. This color shift is caused by parts of the screen becoming magnetized. Occasionally the color shift will remain after you remove the source of magnetism. To help reduce or eliminate the color shift, you can use the degaussing option on most monitors. Most newer monitors automatically degauss when you turn them on, while older monitors might require you do to it manually. Most monitors have a button or menu option that enables you to degauss it manually. Degaussing a monitor will de-magnetize the inside of the monitor, removing the color shift. Unfortunately, if the monitor is exposed to the source of magnetism for too long, degaussing will not be able to clear it up, requiring you to repair or replace the monitor.

It can be due to the effect of some kind of magnetic effect.. If your monitor has the degauss feature then degauss it ONCE and see if returns to normal. Do not use degauss feature more than once in less than half an hour. It can damage your monitor.

Degaussing a NEC LCD1700M+


LCD type monitors don't use a degaussing coil. Older CRT type monitors used/needed a degaussing coil built around CRT for de-magnetizing.

Diagonal RGB lines


It might just need degaussing. If the monitor is equipped with a degauss button, try pressing it. If not, it might eventually go away with time - sometimes when CRT monitors are moved and change orientations odd color distortions due to magnetic fields result. After a while the magnetic field fades and the colors will be back to normal.

Otherwise, upgrade to an LCD - easier on the eyes, and a lot easier on the back. :)
