  1. My kid put a magnet next to my monitor screen and it made pretty colors. Now the colors won't go away. Is it ruined forever?

    There should be a degaussing option in the settings menu(those buttons on the front)

    Thanks. I can get the menu on the screen now, but how do I click on one of the options?

    The exact procedure varies from brand to brand.You can get the manual online for most types.Usually it`s just a matter of pressing menu,navigating with +and- then pressing menu to enter,or something like that

    If the degauss doesn't work, there is another way to fix this problem. You need a magnet that uses the opposite magnetic field, and you have to put it in front of you screen, and slowly move it in circles in a counter-clock wise motion, father and father away from the screen. After my grandpa did this to his tv, this was how we fixed it!

    Yay! The degaussing worked. Me and Isaac are both relieved. Thanks everybody. I learned something.
