    Think Black Line. Broken

    Think Black Line. Broken
    Hey Guys,

    So I pulled my D800 out after a few months of inactivity due to work and snapped a few photos and noticed a thin black line across the top of the photos. I know the camera is due for a clean being shut away for a few months but this couldn't just be a dirty sensor/lens could it? I included 3 test strips from the top of 3 photos

    It would be nice to see the complete images,to be honest these could just be parts of the original image with something in them.
    Its always best to offer us too much rather than not enough.

    Thanks,

    I have attached 3 images below. One is a quick snap showing how it seems to move around. The second image (fainter black line) is taken with 1/250 shutter speed, the second white test image was taken with a 4" shutter speed.

    Apparently the image uploader stopped working - but the missing photo shows the same as the other white test strip except it is clearly fainter when shot with a shorter shutter speed.

    Have you looked inside with the mirror locked up to see if any thing is in there as it looks to be different on each image

    I'm certainly not a camera technician, but I think there must be something that got loose inside your camera that is obstructing the sensor. Maybe a bit of foam or the double sided tape that is supposed to trap the dust in the bottom. Since the line is on top of your pictures, the culprit is in the bottom of the sensor.

    You should send these example photos to Nikon service center where they probably will ask you to send the camera in for a repair.

    Whatever comes out of it, please keep us informed to that if this ever happens to someone else we could advise.

    Thanks for posting.

    I started getting exactly the same line on the top of the photo left side. First i thought that it was a tree and when I tried in my house, i realized it i cleaned the mirror using the brush
    Will post the pictures tomorrow
