Degaussing - sorted.

Post by kernow » February 20th, 2009, 12:16 am

I just stupidly moved my vert cab while it was on, now due to the monitor being replaced it has no degauss button feature anymore, only automatic.

I heard within time it'll go away ( I have a purple bottom left corner ) but how long should it take and do I leave the cab on, or off?

or keep turning it on and checking every 30mins?

:? :)

From my understanding it takes longer than 30mins to cool down. If it works the same as CRT PC monitors they work based on temp.

You could always try to demag it yourself. Very easy to do imo (but needs to be done properly).

sorry, its never occurred before when I moved the cab, and they've been moved a lot recently, only this was the first time I moved it while on.
