My EX-S500 is around 2.5 years old and starting yesterdsay it seems to be overexposed during shooting. objects captured indoor are at least twice as bright and those taken outdoor with sunshine are nearly pure white....i mean, the whole picture is pure white.
i didn't drop it, didn't alter any setting, didn't fridge it...... and it's still working properly the day before.....
My EX-S600 is around 2.5 years old two weeks ago it started overexposing all outdoor pictures taken in the sun and are nearly pure white. I tried changing settings to darken the pictures but nothing works.
I have the same exact problem with mine. it's two and a half years old as well. i also noticed that if you try taking pictures in any of the best shot modes the pictures come out looking like paintings.

Washed out I would guess looks like it's all white or a lot of white instead of the colors on the pictures. My guess is that your camera is over-exposing the pictures. Usually keeping it in automatic should solve your problem. But if it still doesn't, then it might be that you have an offsetting function that I think is called EV, which is either a plus or a minus function. Plus for over-exposing and minus or under-exposing. Read the manual and look for this function. Usually keeping it on auto is enough. Let me know if this helps.
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.
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.
It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
