Vertical bands appear on projection image

My projector is aproximatly 9 months old and the lamp runtime is 1300 hours. I turned it on the other day and noticed evenly spaced vertical lines running across the entire length of the image. They are evenly spaced occuring about every 2 inches. The lines make it impossible for me to watch movies or play any games. Anyway i was wondering if anyone could fill me in as to why this is happening and also tell me how i could fix this problem. I hope its not the lamp... Ok thank you very much

After changing the bulb image will not come on and solid orange light appears

Other then POWER BUTTON light there are three lights more
1. lamp indicator
2. temperature indicator
3. computer input
witch one light is flashing RED or illuminated RED with POWER BUTTON orange light.
If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself
