First gen Dp2 sensor problem?

Hello! I recently used my sigma dp2 which has been idle for two weeks for some product pics. I noticed that my screen started showing magenta colored horizontal lines and bands but which disappeared when pressing the shutter but on a closer inspection I realized that it has affected the picture which leads me to believe its sensor related (?)

HELP! is this common among sigma DP2 cameras? I really like this cam for what its capable of and is actually planning a trip soon with it as the main shooter.

here's the picture showing the bands. its in the entire photo but the most visible at the bottom.

at the moment, I am testing the camera if the same would come back so far nothing. *whew*

prior to shooting this by the way, I had the battery on the camera unmoved including the SD card inside its respective compartments for quite sometime without use. I dunno if that could possibly be the cause?
