What you are decsribing sounds like your picture tube or tubes have been scored (permanent burn marks on the picture tube phosphor). The sure way to tell is to remove the front screen and look into each of the three lenses while the set is on. You will see a black image of your pen mark within the picture. Did you recently have problems with convergence or the set shutting down (turing off by itself for no resaon) ?

There is what looks like an exclamation point inside a half vase with a squiggly line on the bottom.

I don't think it is squiggly line but water and the explanation point is a thermometer, you are overheating. Check the coolant, find out why it is on. Hope this helps.
