You can either wait, or demagnitize your screen.  If you have access to an
AC electromagnet, you can usually demagnitize it yourself by slowly moving
the magnet away from the affected area.  If this doesn't work, give it a
little while to "naturally" demagnitize.  Not a big deal, really.

Just go to the local RadioShack and borrow a demagnetizer coil.
Use as directed by the doctor.
No new TV ecessary.

Don't worry, you can have it fixed. Is an easy proccess but a special
device is required.

It will.  There is a simple degaussing coil and timer built into every color
TV that I've seen.  It only works if the TV has been OFF for at least an
hour (the PTC thermistor has to cool down to ambient).

Try it.  Leave the TV off overnight, then turn it on in the morning.  Do
this for a few days and the problem should go away.

Use a deguassing coil.   Plug it in and turn it on, then bring it near the
CRT, and move it
in front of the CRT in a circular motion, and at the same time, slowly draw
it away from the
CRT.  After you have it at least 5 feet from the CRT, you can then turn it
off.   Turn the TV
back on, and the tint should have gone away.   What you done was to
magnetize the shadow
mask in the CRT, and that residual magnetism is deflecting the electron beam
to the wrong
color dots on the inside face of the CRT.  So, instead of displaying blue
for instance, the beam
is hitting the green dots instead of the blue.   You can get degaussing
coils at some Radio Shack stores, or at least you could.   If you cant find
one, look in some older Radio-TV magazines, or talk to a ham radio operator
for info and advice on winding your own.  If you
can't find info anywhere else, let me know and I'll see what I can do.  As
an FYI, most TV's and
computer monitors have built in Degaussing Coils, but you'd probably wear
something out
switching the unit on and off enough times to clear up the problem.  You're
better off getting
an external coil and use it.



Regards,


Jim
