Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics

My Casio Exilim worked fine for 2 years. With autofocus, pictures were usually very crisp and beautiful, regardless of whether the setting was indoors or outdoors. 2 days ago, the camera suddently started being out of focus. Pictures indoors were very blurry. Even simple pictures outdoors on a sunny day (situations in which the camera used to work perfectly) were white-washed. In addition, all the pictures now have horizontal lines across them. Why? I tried cleaning the lens, removing the battery and replacing, removing card and replacing, manual focus (adjusting EV shift, white balance, etc.). Also the battery seems to have a shorter lifespan than usual. I don't know if that's the reason. I don't know if I should replace the battery or if something is just wrong with the camera instead. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you!

    Also I want to add that I did not drop the camera or obviously damage it in any way. Is this a problem that can be easily repaired and about how much would it cost?

This is a CCD failure. Go to the Casio Tech support team. There has been an issue with a batch of CCD's and a recall on certain models of all makes This may be one of them

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Casio Exilim ex-z57 inconsistent blurry pics

Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera time to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? If not, the good pictures were just luck. The size of the card has nothing to do with it.

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight

Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics

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.
