Default F460 - Horizontal Bands / Scanlines

Father in-law has a FinePix F460 point and shoot. He was having issues with 'scanlines' appearing on ALL of his photos. Luckily he keeps most of his photos on the card and I was able to see that on 8/28/08 his photos were clear but on 9/12/08 they had the bands. Attached is a crop from these two photos. Some other forums had mentioned that this is a 'fairly' common issue and some said it was the shutter. But I am unable to see the shutter OR hear it for that matter. (Perhaps its a 'digital' shutter?)

I realize that its probably cheaper to buy a new one than have this one repaired by a camera shop, but I am fairly handy with a tri-wing screwdriver.

ANY additional info that someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

It's probably the camera's sensor (lines like that are pretty common when the sensor starts to fail).

its the ccd in the camera, the sensor has either gone, or it is on the verge of going-unfortunately it's time to get a new camera-
