It looks like you are getting a diffraction effect that makes those bars of light show up. I haven't tried the screen with a LED light, so it may not work the same way. All I know is how it works with fluorescent lights. But, when you start shining light from near point sources through any form of "grating" you can get unexpected results (unexpected only to a non-physicist).
