Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Ok, have you checked the fluid level and condition?
Alright, when you dropped the pan did you change the filter and clean it all out good?
Ok. Dirty fluid can cause these issues, and it can also cause that trouble code. Since you changed the fluid and the filter, there may not be a mechanical issue anymore. The transmission computer may just need to be reset. You can try disconnecting the battery and letting it stay disconnected for 30 minutes or so. If this doesn't work you'll have to bring it to the dealership for them to do it. If the reset does not work, it probably does need a shift solenoid.
Alright. The solenoids can be electrically ok but could still be sticking, the P0770 refers to shift solenoid E. It is replaceable but it does involve digging into the transmission. If replacing the solenoid does not fix it, it may just be too gummed up inside to repair and will need to be replaced.
The shift solenoids are attached to the valve body which is inside the transmission. You have to remove the pan, filter, and the valve body to change the solenoid. Part # *****(###) ###-####/p>

Yes it would make sense if it was sticking, once it gets hot the fluid is thinner and everything moves more easily.
Yes manual transmissions do not have any solenoids. You may want to double check with the dealer with your VIN but that part is for a 2002 Camry v6 with a 4 speed
Here are some pictures from the manual that should help
Remove the harness in the first picture and unplug the shift solenoids. Then remove the bolts indicated in this picture
