I'm sure you realise that Live View uses a completely separate AF system. If there are problems with both, there must be something more basically wrong with your camera.

That's not a scratch. It's due to the partially-silvered finish of that part of the mirror for AF purposes, and it quite normal. If you'd looked carefully before sending the camera in, you would always have seen it.
