Apparently, it's best not to drop television sets.

I dropped my TV a few times, and now the color is messed up in a few spots. Is there anything to be done?

The TV is an old-school 32" Sony Trinitron. We dropped it a couple of times whilst moving it. D'oh! Now there are 3 spots where the color is a little weird - along the top near the left and right corners, and along the bottom near the right corner. When I have it on the plain DVD bluescreen, the two spots along the top are greenish, and the spot along the bottom is reddish.
I looked for a "degauss" button, or something similar, and couldn't find it. Is there some sort of DIY way to fix this?
(I should mention that except for the aforementioned color spots, the TV appears to be working fine.)
