This is a problem we are seeing quite a few. The problem is, you have a defective Lite-Tunnel. This can be repaired two ways. (1) The Cheap way. Replacing the Lite-Tunnel. This is somewhat complicated. You must take the engine apart to change the tunnel. After changing the Lite-tunnel it must be aligned. (2) The expensive way. Changing the complete Lite engine. This is less complicated, but cost a lot more. Lite engine Part Number BP96-00822J . Average cost $1300

Best regards

I have a slightly arched pink & green line accross the top of the screen.

I am wondering if we have the correct model number listed here? If so with the model listed either something is inside like a spider web or that model uses a optical light engine which "might" be able to do this if bad.

The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC’S , not those cheap aftermarket or china made IC’S full pictorial directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most cases GOOD LUCK!!!

Two green lines on bottom left corner

Sounds like a convergance issue. I would have a tech set the convergance for you if you have not done it before, it can be tricky and you could make worse.
