Big Problem with Samsung Digimax S500 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!

\015 I have had my Samsung Digimax S500 for about a year now going on Two! I got it when I had my daughter as a gift to be able to take pictures of her.. It has worked FINE for this long with the occasional drop.. lol I have a kid so it has been gotten ahold of a few times but never any problems with it! Well today I go to take pictures and when I take pictures outside the camera was white lines all through the pictures. I have tried diffirent settings.. Colors.. Zoomed in.. Zoomed out.. Diffirent picture sizes.. Diffirent modes.. But that I dont get is when I look through the screen at before taking a picture or video'n it looks perfectly fine.. But it has the white lines in the picture when I go to view it on the camera and computer... And I even took a few pictures inside the house and they have a few lines but not as bad as outside... I can send pictures if I am given a email so you can see the pictures and whats happening.. But its only when the picture is taken... When I look through the screen its fine.. just comes back with lines all throuh it! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!\015
