Completely OT: How to Degauss a Computer Monitor?

Pardon, I hope you're indulgent, but perhaps another user or video
engineer is able to help. Using Ubuntu Studio/64 Studio is unpleasant
while the screen has got colour spots.
When turning on my monitor or using the degauss option by the menu,
nothing happens, but a little click sound, without the additional noise
done by the degauss.
Because I don't have the professional equipment to degauss CRTs from
external, I tested
a demagnetiser coil for analog audio heads, with and without
touching a long screw driver,
a reversing hammer drill,
not a hand-held blender, because the cable was too short,
but a fan heater and
another monitor degaussing while face to face to the motley
Until now I didn't screw on the monitor.
Any trick how I can degauss it today, without repairing it and without
buying a low cost CRT degausser?
Any hints about what component/s might be broken?
