Black lines on the top of the screen

This morning a bunch of black lines appeared on the top of the screen. No damage has been dealt, these are completely random.

Re: Black lines on the top of the screen

If it was only on the menu screen, not only would I not worry about it (and I probably wouldn't even notice it just like I ignore ads on the home screen...hint hint Roku), I would not even bother to mention it. Start worrying if the content is affected.
