Displays and Projectors : Color problems on my TV- degaussing?

Color problems on my TV- degaussing?

Ok, so lately there has been a problem with my tv. It has weird colors coming from the sides, but sometimes it's all over the screen. It seems everything is either green, red or purple, but whatever the case, not the color it should be. I've tried dusting with one of those air can things, but it didn't help much.

I've read some and it sounds like the problem is that it needs to be degaussed (new to me), but I really don't know where to find a degaussing coil or wand. Actual stores I mean. Not online, what stores actually carry them?

Or could this be another problem, I don't want to buy one of those and waste the money if it's something else.

Thank you.

It could also be your blue gun in the picture tube is bad, in which you're SOL.

I just got a new tv for christmas. However, that tv has the only VHS player I have so I'm keeping it for all the childhood classics, so thanks for the help.
