Thanks for the responses. I had tried cleaning the following morning but it didn't come off, and then ran out of sensor swabs. I agree, it doesn't look like a scratch to me, more like a smear, especially since it's not a smooth straigh line, and round spots along it. I am going to order some more and try again. Hopefully it will come off.

Side bar on sensor swabs.  They're expensive.  Way too expensive. Something like $5 per swab, right?  I would be buying the kind that are like plastic spatulas with a cleaning filter folded around them.  Buy a package of Pec Pads and cut out replacement wipes and wrap them around the spatula yourself.  You buy the first set of swabs yourself to get the spatulas but theus make your own refills.
