Line across top of screen

    The line appears and disappears, but it never changes position or size. I'll check to see if it has anything to do with the ammount of "White" on the screen as described above.

If the picture is ok otherwise then only thing that probably needs to be done is a vertical height adjustment. That is if the lines never changes position from cold to hot.

if this is a distorted kind of rainbow aura affecting the colour, you need to de-gauss the screen - a good tv repair man will have the mains powered magnet to fix this - and shouldn't charge alot.
