I Have a canon 1dx with 190,000 shutter count and just recently i am getting a horizontal strip of light at the top of my images this seems to appear with shutter speeds over 1/1000 s 305936_1565462775.jpg

has anyone had similar problems ?

Does it happen with any other memory cards if not then it could be a corrupted card

Have you tried recording to two cards simultaneously to see what happens

Have a look at these. Know nothing about Canons, but found these quickly 2 on Google search:

Never thought of that I will give it a try...

It is almost certainly a shutter problem with one of the blades slowing down at the end of the travel. It would not matter at a low shutter speed but would become critical at high speeds. If it is the shutter, it would be the same whichever memory card you used. I am sure it could be repaired though.
