Do not put a pm magnet to the screen. That will screw up the screen and give it a rainbow color effect. I use my soldering gun to degauss tv screens. But anything that generates a magnetic field from any power source will do.

I have a blue -green color at the bottom of my Magnavox 27 inch/ Model 27MS343S screen. What do I do?????

Ir is due to the magnatization of the picture tube. there are tw main possibilities for this fault. The first one is , if you place any high intensity magnetic materials, like stereo speaker boxes, which contain high power magnets inside on speakes or so on. The second one is failure of degaussing posistor inside the circuit board of your Tv.
Every colur TVs has this posistor, ususlly called degaussing posistor, which will work each time you switch on your TV by AC mains, for a very little , say to some microseconds or so, and it will heat up then and its resistance will go up to infinite, not allow any current to pass through. It is connected to a coil fitted around the picture tube inside, and will demagnatize the picture tube each time you switch on the Tv. If you switch off regularly with remote control, this posistor will not work, as there will not full power off occurs.
Do one thing first. Switch off your TV with it front panel power ON/OFF swtich, or unplug it from the mains wall socket for some time, say 30 minutes or so, and the switch it on. In rare occations this will retify the problem. If not, replace the degaussing posistor with an identical type. OK.

Impurities on screen. Looks like old crt problem

It could very well be it needs de-gaussed or possibly the PTC in the TV which de-magnetises the screen may be faulty. In the worst case the shadowmask part of the TV could be at fault which would mean replacing the CRT

Magnavox 20mt4405/17 piece of junk!

Hello sletak, This problem is actually common. Your degaussing coil has malfunctioned, causing the power supply to become unstable which in trun is effecting the memory settings in the processor. You have threen problems in one so lets start by looking at the overall cause first 1) degaussing coil going bad (shorted then opened) Replace this and the thermistor that is attached to the degaussing circuitry. 2) power supply instability (power surge from the degaussing circuit) replace the damaged components in the power supply section. Troubleshoot this thoroughly. 3) after fixing the power supply and the degaussing components you will need to manually degauss the TV and then use the auto-degaussing function to do the rest. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83
