Horizontal lines on the screen after the picture is taken

Remove the Battery from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery pack and turn on the Camera and reset it to the original factory settings by selecting the "Initialize" option under Setup1.

If the issue persists then service will be required.

Dropped my casio exilim ex-z85a camera and now when I take pictures, there are light horizontal striped lines running through the entire image

By dropping the camera you have caused some shock damage to the LED display so you will no doubt have get it repaired.
Saying that, if you copy the pictures to a computer you may find that the pictures are fine.

Horizontal LINES

If you are getting fine horizontal lines thet means the picture is over exposing. most probably the apparture or the shutter blade mechanism is not working fine. needs repairs.

Horizontal Plaid Lines throughout the picture

You mentioned the Magnet possibility, check around its location or move it to another site. Check also cabling where it runs and connections swap USB connectors or even if you have other USB stuff running that you could do with out. Its all a process of elimination before you have to decide to bin it.
