HELP, line in all photos "photo added"

My wife just downloaded a bunch of photos she took last night and all have a line running down the center in the same spot in all of them......any sugestions as to what the problem is?
Ran the dust removal and no change, does the sensor need cleaning?

It's a K20D

can you post an example? if it's some hardware problem, I guess it would be through whole image, in exact same place every time, and it's unlikely to be just one line, usually it's all over the image in some repeating manner. This sounds to me like hair or something on sensor, but please post an example...

Well, just got off the phone with the Pentax sales rep here in Alberta and we troubleshot it with pixel maping, looking at the sensor, reseting the system, but nothing has helped.

I turned on liveview and its plain as day on the LCD screen. Last resort, he told me to take out the battery for a couple of hours.....but looks like it may need service.

Anyone else come across this?

If it's showing on live-view AND on the photos, that says to me it's a sensor problem....

Have you tried a different memory card?

Or tried shooting RAW or JPG (other than format used when lines showed up?

I would say that whole column of pixels is dead, since the line is same all over.

well, I'm sorry that this happened to you, but it's sensor problem, you'll probably get a new through support service, maybe even whole new camera... good luck

Crappy. Your sensor is done. Just don't dick around and take it in for servicing. You don't want this problem to crop up again a few days after your warranty expires. It's too bad.

Thanks everyone, I was pretty sure it was the sensor but I was hoping it was something simple. I guess the good thing is it's only a couple of months old, but still........it's kinda tough that it has to go to Vancouver for service as my wife will be without it for awhile
