This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free (for the S1 IS), including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Try to reset the camera - take out the battery then push the reset button with a straightened end of a paper clip. Hold the reset switch depressed for about 3 seconds. Reinsert the battery.

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

Can't repair by yourself.
It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Lines in every pictre ,


Many compact digitals (of all brands) use a Sony sensor and Sony had a bad batch go through and the sensor's contacts are failing.  If you are getting images corrupted with lines, bad/weird colour or severe noisy hash, you may well have a dud sensor.  Check the canon web site for a list of effected cameras and/or contact Canon service.
Canon is replacing effected sensors free of charge regardless of warranty status.

White lines when you take photos in light, but perfect in the dark


The problem lies in you camera's CCD unit which is located on the back of the lens held on be 3 small screws it could also be a setting in the camera's menu try going into the menu and reseting the camera to default it works some times if that does not work than you need the ccd replaced pretty easy fix I fixed 1 with the same problem about two weeks ago for someone it happens I hope this helps you out.
