The Degauss thing is a coil around the edge of your screen. Whenever you hit the degauss button, a capicator discharges through the coil to de-magnetise the shadow mask.

It takes several mins to charge back up before you can do it again. Many screens also degauss automatically when turned on. That's why you hear the "Goonk!" noise when you turn your TV or monitor on. That's the surge going through the degauss coil.

I made a degaussing "wand" by sticking a pair of magnets on a drill bit. Spin the magnets, move it near the spot on your screen and let it run a few seconds, then move away from the screen and turn the drill off.

Didn't anyone tell you not to play with magnets near the computer? And if you noticed the effect, why did you keep doing it, lol. I've noticed the same effect if I put a sub woofer next to one of my CRT monitors, the colors on the monitor will become extremely distorted; but that doesn't happen with my LCD.

In Chem class in high school we would take an old car speaker, one of the 6x9's and mess with the TV and spread all the colors around

Cool effect and when the SChool anouncements came on they were either Green or Purple. Teacher gave us the Ok, probably the coolest teacher ever
