:D Hi all !!! Hey, I have a simple question... Ok, I got a new monitor, and, it has manual degaussing. I have been degaussing once a day (the monitor is on maybe 4 to 8 hours a day). The color is fine and all... here is my question: how often should I degauss ? I know that the monitor manual states to wait at least 15 minutes between degaussings, but, none I have ever had ever tell you how often you should actually degauss as a preventive measure, and I don't want to wear out the degaussing circuitry. Good question eh ! LOL... hey, TIA !!! ;)

[tsg=welcome] Welcome, Senny! [/tsg]

You shouldn't need to degauss at all unless you have a purity problem. If discolored areas show up on your screen, press the degauss button... otherwise, leave it alone.

I'll smack mine if I have moved it around alot, but other than that I don't do it unless I am having a problem. (never) I don't like the sound it makes, or the shake. I know it can't be good for it. LOL:)

The only time you need to degauss is this:

Your a computer geek, and your buddy calls you over to your buddies mom's house. your buddies mom ask you to look at her monitor because the image is all twisted and discolored and has been like that the day she bought the monitor...

you go over to your buddies house and check out your buddies sister....er oh wait...I mean your buddies mom's monitor. upon looking at the screen you know it needs degaussed. So you press the button, again, and again, and again...no affect on the image. Then you happen to look ontop of the monitor and see some NIC NAKS...sitting ontop of the monitor. Those NIC NAKS are refrigrator magnets...sitting on top of the monitor...hmmm....easy twenty bucks for you. You tell you buddies mom to remove the NIC NAKS ontop of the monitor and explain to her that you can't have a magnet near a monitor. Then you press the degauss a few more times and VOLIA...problem solved...on your way out your buddies house, you check out your buddies sister on more time and wave pocketing twenty bucks for Friday nights date.....

Modern monitors are degauzed every time you turn them on. The reason for the degauze button is for those situations where the monitor is not or can not be turned off on an occasional basis.
