6D has weird bright edge on images

I recently was using my back up camera (6D) during a shoot and started noticing that the top right corner has a bright streak across it. But it doesn't appear when I'm using the camera for film and its still there when I switch the card and lens. I do a lot of maneuvering with my double cameras in my specialty so it's been bumped a few times in its lifetime but nothing happens directly before the change so I'm wondering if it needs repair? or if there is any troubleshooting I can do hear to fix it?

That looks like failed, or failing, shutter me.

Re: 6D has weird bright edge on images

you mean a settings issue on shutter speed or the actual shutter in the camera is failing?
