Sony tube TVs on occasion require a degaussing procedure. This can happen due to nearby unshielded speakers, stray magnetic fields from tools, and Earth's natural field. Most TVs will automatically degauss when the set is turned on, but this often is incomplete or ineffective. Using a hand-held degaussing tool can clear the screen discolouration found at the corners of the TV, restoring normal set operation after a few minutes.

    Turn the set off, then back on to complete the process.
