My degausser died on the venerable ColorTrak2000 31" monitor.
It made a crackling sound and the picture came on with a bright
magenta frame around a bright green oval in the middle of the
screen. I was afraid the picture tube had gone bad, but I managed
to get normal color back in the center of the tube. The degausser
still works, but without the surge at the beginning, so it is worse
than useless. I've got a bulk demagnetizer around somewhere
to try on it. The screen is too big for little electric motors around
the house to do much good. I see degaussers on ebay. I hate
to lose this nice set, since it works beautifully with the DTV
converter box. Really nice, subtle colors, especially flesh tones.
You don't get that kind of subtlety in the new sets...
