canon 600d problem

I have strange problem with canon 600d. The photos which were taken through the liveview have darker bars in the lower part as it was shown below:

There are two photos that were taken with same settings through liveview and through the viewfinder- you can see the difference here:

What can I do to solve the problem? Thanks!

I looks to me that the mirror isn't rising completely out of the way, or isn't staying in place when raised in live view. You can check by observing it with the lens off.

Could be the shutter. Maybe the shutter is dead.

Where is the problem- in the shutter or in the mirror? Is it easy to be repaired? Thanks!

well, the mirror you can see by using the camera without lens and then into live view. Is it up completely?
