M I RITE? STICKERS?


« on: March 08, 2019, 12:53:06 AM »

Hey guys (and sorry that this is somewhat tangentially related to Famicom), I was wondering if anyone here had experience with CRT televisions that need to be degaussed. I have an older television that I am quite fond of, which works fine except that it needs to be zapped. What degaussing tools do you recommend? Are there any specific techniques or can I just get the tool and go to town?

Replace varistor(a part, which connected in series with degaussing loop).

Buy a degaussing coil from ebay or somewhere. Bring the coil close to the screen and turn it on. Draw concentric circles as you spiral the coil away from the scren slowly and gently. Then turn the coil off. There are plenty of videos on youtube that demonstrate this. Make sure no cassette tapes or FDS games are nearby, and donít let the coil run too hot Wink

Definitely have. Some monitors donít have built-in degaussing mechanisms. Dude just wants to learn how to do that externally.
