Thread: How do I degauss my screen?
05-27-2004, 11:41 PM #1NightbladeGuestHow do I degauss my screen?
Alright, so I've got a G3 iMac (the better kind, the one with the CD slot and the better speakers). Er, two of 'em, actually. Same specs, except one's able to read DVDs and the other is able to write to CDs. Anyway, there's a lot of static build-up on my screens, and I was wondering if there's anyway I can degauss the screens, like I can on most PC monitors (using the buttons on the front of the monitor).

Not sure what static has to do with degaussing. A monitor needs to be degaussed when the exterior magnetic field surrounding the computer, has drastically changed, thus altering the image on the screen. Degaussing simply resets the ion gun at the rear of the CRT, straightening the magnetic field back out.
As for your question, the monitor automatically degausses each time it's turned on. All modern monitors do.
