My nephew was playing his 360 on a projection tv and after awhile, the picture was getting messed up and now there are permanent lines on the tv at the top, was this because of the tv?

That could be due to a lot of reasons. What type projection tv is it? (CRT,DLP,LCOS,etc...)

Maybe, maybe not...Games can cause burn in... It does happen, no projection technology likes static images for too long... Hard to say if it was this that screwed the tv.
