It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.

Case 1: if these lines appear only on cam lcd and not on pics if u see them on pc then ur LCD is faulty get it replaced under warranty
Case 2: if all pics have horizontal lines on them if u see them on computer then it is a BAD CCD see the link below to confirm u can still get it repaired free under warranty if u dont have warranty they will still do it free of cost i am sure it is a manufac fault hope it helps u
pls rate me FIXYA for diagnosis dont waste time run for warranty claim or tell me i can get help for u and guide u where to go tell me ur region !!
