I sent my 40d in to have the sensor cleaned. I get a call and it is scratched. How can this happen? I never touched the inside.

Hmm...don't know, you'll obviously need to do some serious negotiations with Canon...sorry!

I hope not. I got a call from Canon. If there was a scratch would it show up on every pic like a film camera? I remember seeing a thin line on pics from my Minolta x570. I finally found a small single hair on the mirror.

Post a few of your most recent shots. I'm not sure if all scratches show up. It might depend on how bad it is.
