    they are not colored red, blue or green. They are like blurring parts or the picture, you can see through them but they just are annoying. They are diagonal like I said and go from top to bottom all the way across the tv.

    thats usually caused by a weak capacitor in the deflect ( flyback area) of the chassis. look for obvious sign of swelling in one of the capacitors or the plastic showing signs of shrinkage near the flyback

    Capacitors are dangerous as they hold the voltages stored inside them. Its probaly best if not not experienced to call in a repair tech for that type of problem.

Panasonic ctp2780sf no picture faint line going vertical across screen

There are two reasons for this fault. A fault smoothing capacitor at the video output voltage rail, or excess of screen voltage. These lines are called 'vertical retrace lines' technically. Check this link for more details. It has a post, which have information regarding this fault. Go to older posts there.

Pink and green diagonal lines rollng across the screen??? panasonic 42" Plasma . Only purchased about 3 years ago - but been used very rarely.

Have you tried lifting the ground on the TV? That set has a grounded (3-prong) plug and sometimes sccrolling lines can be caused by a ground loop in your power lines.Are the green and purple lines very short, like just a few rows of pixels tall, or multiple inches, like 3 - 8 tall?

I have a panasonic 47" widescreen about 5 years old. Recently turned it on and all 4 corners are missed aligned and a faint line going through the middle. Tried setting the convergence with all of them...

Yes, the convergence output IC's have gone bad. They need to be replaced. This is a very common problem with all projection tv's. It is the job of those outputs to properly align where the red, green and blue beams land on the screen.
