Have you used your camera somewhere where lasers were? Lasers can very seriously damage your sensor.
You can try pixel mapping to see if it can be fixed automatically. It's somewhere in the menu.

Every shot I've seen like this so far has turned out to be a failing/damaged sensor. One line isn't as bad as some posts on the forum here, but it's bad enough. I think you'll have to get the camera serviced/ sensor replaced to get a fix for this.
