That looks like frosting issues. Not sure if that camera has dessicant to recharge or replace, especially if it has been a while since it was changed.

But the desiccant must be put first in the oven, or do I open the package and put it in the camera?

Could be the shutter. How long is the exposure?

It can already be seen from a few seconds to a few minutes, but I don't think the shutter is an edge on the whole sensor

3.8 Replacing the desiccant
Your camera includes a high-performance molecular sieve
desiccant tablet which is used to avoid condensation in the
CCD chamber. Although this desiccant will last a long time it
may eventually need replacement or recharging, in which case
please follow the instructions below:
Desiccant port
- To replace the desiccant, open the desiccant port with the supplied plastic tool
and a screwdriver and take out the used tablet.
- To recharge the desiccant, place the tablet in an electric oven at 200ÂșC for 2 hours.
Take the tablet out the oven (CAUTION: tablet will be very hot) and allow it to cool
down.
- Place the recharged tablet back in the camera, replace the port cover and tighten
(no need to over-tighten). Wait 24 hours before connecting the camera again.
You will notice that there is a filter inside the desiccant chamber. The purpose of this is to
avoid contamination of the chamber when the desiccant is being replaced. The filter is
very fragile and should not be touched.

This is from the Atik owners manual.

Mike

it seems that the problem is that in the past you had a problem with ice, then it dried and stained the sensor, but the question is: can you clean it?
