I had the same problem I thought the lamp was Broken orburned out.
I removed the lamp tried  to look at it and see if I could tell if it was burned out or not. Put it back in and it worked.
Oh I forgot! Originally I had loaned it to a friend and it came back broken. The foot at the bottom was broken so I assumed, that it was probably dropped or fell off the table.
So First I bought a second projector because the bulbs were so expensive. Then I did not try to check the bulb for a couple of month's It only had 70 hours on it Anyway Give it a shot. Worked for me

I have a Optoma EP721. It now projects verticle lines on the screen background. How do you eliminate the verticle lines ?

It sounds like you have a projector which is in need of professional repair. You should eliminate source material problems first though by checking the projector with alternative input sources, ensuring that you also check the cables, and various inputs on the projector.
If the lines are present on all the inputs then the fault is internal to the projector. This will require professional repair. The first point of contact should be Optoma at (UK) or (USA). They should be able to give you an idea of ow much it may potentially cost to have your projector repaired and (most importantly) check whether it is under warranty. Most Optoma projectors ship with 3 year warranties these days.

Most projectors have air filters. Yours may need to be removed and cleaned. No air flow = overheat.

Ive had my optoma ep721 projector probably for likle 2 months and

1 of 2 things happened here. Either the power supply is spent or your lamp ballast is busted. In either case it would have to be opened and repaired professionally. may cost upwards of a new projector, so look around for a decent shop and have them test it. If you dont mind me asking, if you decide to get rid of it would you mind selling me the lamp cheaply. Doesnt matter if its burn out, just need the glass from the bulb if its not broken. Hope i helped.
