    We moved into our new home on the weekend and there's a radiator where I want my TV to go but it's giving out some magnetic field, causing my screen to discolour.

    Is there anything I can buy to fit between the radiator and the TV to stop it?

    It's probably best to beg/borrow/steal a degaussing coil if you can. These are normally used on the sets themselves but they work on most things that have picked up magnetism. You could use a metal shield but that will probably become magnetised in time.

    You could try covering your radiator in aluminium foil.

    If your radiator will be on, you should probably move it away anyway. My TV is near a radiator, but not so near that the heat travels to the TV (nor so near that it causes any purity problems).

    Don't forget that your TV will degauss everytime you turn it on from off anyway.
