    If turning it off and on doesn't work (try several times), then it's worth getting an engineer round to wave his degaussing wand around the affected area(s).

    Every time you switch on your TV from cold - that's not stand by - but with the big switch on the front which puts the light on, your TV will de-magnetise itself to remove colour stains on the screen, as the set manufactures know that magnetic fields can appear from a number of source - including the earth.

    If the stains are bad, it might take two or three switchings to clear them - give the set 15 minutes or so to cool down before you do another one.

    If they don't clear then you need a deguassing coil which you rotate in front of the screen to take away the magnetic field.

    You would have to had very powerful magnets around to do any lasting damage!
