Blue stain in corner of Panasonic 36" tv

I stupidly sited a 14" portable tv near to Panasonic 36PF-10 tv, and now a blue mark has appeared in bottom left corner. I have tried using a tape head demagnetizer and now the stain only appears when tv has been on for a while. Is it worth getting an engineer with a proper degausser, as I am tempted to try attaching a low power magnet or two to the tube, to see if this cures it. The deguassing circuits of the tv are obviously not up to clearing it.

nick try a hair dryer (face rear to screen) and see if the Set has an internal Degauss routine.......

Make sure set is powered off and not in standby as internal degausser will not activate.

Thanks but have tried hairdryer and no good. I am experimenting with a small magnet on outside of back of tv now, it seems to help if in right position.

Tried adjusting the Geomagnetic Correction? Access it from the front panel.

The Geomagnetic Correction is to tilt the picture slightly relative to the Earth's magnetic field, depending on which way the set is facing.

By all means try it, but it's very unlikely to affect the colour staining.

It sounds as if you'll need a pucka degaussing coil.

I pulled it out from wall, had a look at picture and it was perfect. I had a little 10" tv a fair way away (I thought), which was causing the problem. TV`s are obviously very sensitive to magnetic fields. I want to keep it for a few more years as the picture (especially through RGB Scart) blows away any plasma I have seen. I reckon a few years down the line they will have a tv with plasma dimensions and crt picture so am waiting for that! Thanks for all replies.

They certainly are, well CRT ones anyway.

That's why they de-gauss themselves every time you switch on. :lesson:

Glad you've got it sorted. :thumbsup:
