Streaks showing in all my photos, what now?

This is an older camera (*istD with 20k+ actuations), my workhorse for real estate photography.

Is it time to retire it?
or can something like this be fixed?
what causes this?

<see photo>

Is this happening in all your photos? Here, it looks like it might be caused due the the reflection, but then again, it's quite uniform It it's indeed a fault in the sensor, then the camera will likely need to be retired.

Yes, when I said "what causes this", I should have said "what causes a sensor to create these streaks"... Yes, it is in every photo in the same place so it is definately the sensor.

So I guess that means the sensor is history? or about to be?
