what an amount of replies (12)
Several people suggested there must be some big power cable or machine
in the neigbourhood. I did not spot this . Others suggested there may be some
magnetized steel somewhere, and one of them suggested a compass or gauss meter
do detect this.
some people mentioned the screen is very sensitive to mechanical vibrations
during transport. I doubt, because it was moved several times before on
transport cars. this time is was carefully raised by hand and moved to the
room next door, but one can never know.
I'm gonna check the coils on the VDU tube and those little alignment magnets
attached , (maybe there is one loosened ?) though the turning and lifting
does denies this.
