Hey

My DK has decided to throw a hissy when I moved it and now I need to degauss the screen. Tried leaving it overnight to see if it'll correct itself, but no joy.

Does anyone have a spare wand/ coil they're willing to part with, or anyone local (Leeds) have one I could borrow?

Thanks!

At the last resort use a power drill on full power and do exactly the same motions you would with a wand. Didn't believed it would work until I tried it myself now my monitors bang on.

I used a spare car speaker, the big magnet on that worked a treat degaussing my Hantaerx CRT.
