Please read post #5.

Most of the "unwanted" magnetism on TVs is not in the coil region but the shadow mask or the fixings round the screen.

"WARNING: Don't attempt to degauss inside or in the back of the set (near the CRT neck. This can demagnetize the relatively weak purity and convergence magnets which may turn a simple repair into a feature length extravaganza!"
