An odd problem with the k-x sensor

Well, here's my first post after occasionally poking around this forum.
A few months, ago I tripped over a cracked in the sidewalked, tumbled over while holding my k-x. Luckily I was able to pull the k-x towards my stomach and saved it from crashing against the floor.
However, when looking through photos I noticed some of them had an odd black bar to the right side. It occurred once every 20-30 shots. However, as of lately, it's beginning to appear in every shot. An example is posted.

Any idea as to what is causing that?

Edit: well in this shot there's an odd green bar, but in normal lighting it'll be a black bar.

Probably not the source of problem, but I would try a different memory card just to see.

It's probably your PP software. I know Picasa does this to K-x RAWs.
