Monitor Magnetization Help!

I know this is not an XP question but I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.
I just purchased a refurbished dell 21" monitor. A few weeks after I got it, I noticed that the bottom left hand portion of the screen was magnetized. Since the speaker was right next to the area that was magnetized, I immediately thought it was the speaker. I moved it and degaussed, but the discoloration would go away for about one second after degauss, and then it would re-appear, also un-evening the screen. I put tin foil around that area and it seemed to take away the discoloration but it just re-appeared after a day. Please help me; I do not want to have to get another monitor! Thanks

It could be possible the magnetic shielding in that area is weak, or such..or more unlikely that a small magent of some type is affecting the monitor from the inside.

But if degauss isn't working it means that either there is a current magnetic interference or that the field can't be re-aligned =/ sorry man, you might wanna call dell and ask if they have any ideas.

Check the whole area it may not be the speaker in general, I found that my TV does that from a 6-7 inches away from the monitor..
