Whenever taking a still picture, the photos come out overexposed, no matter what the settings are or if they're on automatic. The last time pictures were taken, the shutter speed was set for nightshots, and unwittingly the camera was used at that setting in broad daylight. Is there any way of fixing this? What exactly is the problem? Thanks!

You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside. Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight t Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT
take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.
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.
My guess is the the EV setting is on the + side and not neutral (0).
Either that or Image Adjustment setting is wrong. Check EV by pressing
the +/- button (right side near On/Off switch). Hold EV selector and
make sure 0.0 is in the display. Let me know if that is not the problem
and I'll assist you further.
