Hi,this error is associated with a defective ccd imager and ccd will be in need of replacement.I do suspect that most service facilities in your area should be well equipped to repair.Imager on this model cost is less than $50.00,so I suspect this will be a cost effective repair.You can even take to Best buy or radioshack and they will forward to their service center.

If you have any other questions please ask....Best to you,Joe
