Pentax 645n help

not sure where to post this too but I have a pentax 645n which i bought summer 2015 and I started using it a lot recently.I noticed that I get this line on a lot of my photos and I really have no idea what i could be. Is it my camera, scanner, or the place where i get my rolls processed? Also, this line is also on the negs themselves except they dont go all the way through (edge to edge)(Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet)

My guess is that the shutter is defect - one (or both) of the shutter curtains does not move across the frame at a constant speed.

I agree it's most likely a faulty shutter, getting stuck a bit around half-way through its travel. If it's visible on the negatives then it's not the scanner and I don't see how the development could put the same line across all the shots.
