This is a problem with shutter not fast enough opening to take a picture indoor shows the horizontal lines. In sun light it is too slow and over expose the picture. Not worth the trouble to fix, buy another camera?
is it dark on picture playback (picture from before fault occurred) and menu also, if not then turn exposure value back up, on my camera you do this by pressing the WB (white balance/exposure button) and turning it to 0. it is the up button on the 4 way knob. but I have a Panasonic FZ20. yours may be different. If the whole LCD screen is dim, and the viewfinder is OK, then you have a problem with the LCD screen. You will need to take it to the repair agents.
Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens
itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with
horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work
to take great pictures.
get new batteries, if recharging your current batteries does not work (to stop it shorting out).
reduce your shutter exposure, by changing to Manual Mode (M), selecting +/-, and then the left button (flash) around the Menu OK button. Mine works fine at 1s shutter speed, but was showing horizontal lines before that ...
Possibly the shutter release (the "take a picture button") or the mechanism under it is getting stuck down and not coming back up to let you take a second shot.
Try cleaning under there with a can of compressed air. Be careful because the release button is super fragile - looks big but only held on underneath by a tiny stalk about the size of a pin (I know because mine broke off when the camera dropped). Panasonics are light but fragile, others, like Sony, heavier but much more solid.
the problem is on the obturator, is blocked, doesn´t close when u give a shot, u can see if u look to the lens and take a picture at same time, if see one that is working properly u will see that the obturator closes and open as u take a picture. probably u will need to send her to the dealer
