Hello guys.

You see i have a question about a monitor and the magnetic field
What i mean is that i had a CRT monitor before and i didn't had normal speakers to computer i had this HiFi tower and i connected it to my computer but the speakers were producing this magnetic field or something so the monitor broke down. Right now i have this LCD Samsung SycnMaster 930B and i was wondering if the speakers are going to harm it if i connect them to this monitor. I heard that LCDs are build differently than CRTs.

Thank you for your help

Hey there michald.

I dont know if they will affect your new monitor. But they are built diffrently, LCD is liqued crystals. Thats why they usually more expensive. I know on CRT's if a magnet gets to close and damages color, some monitors have "Degauze". Like the "LG 710S"

Any more information. Wait a bit longer and maybe someone can give you an exact answer if it will mess up your new screen.

Cool :whistling:

It shouldnt really affect it as CRTs are susceptible to magnets because of the way they work they use electromagnetic plates to guide electrons onto phosphorescent spots(itll actually go away sometimes once you remove the magnet).

But its still electronics and electronics dont like being near magnets at all.
