Answers :

I'm not sure what that error message is but it's definitely some type of an error code the camera is giving you. It sounds like it probably needs to be serviced. An excellent place where you can have it fixed is www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canons and they are not expensive at all for service. They do excellent work on these models. I hope that helps you with it, best of luck with the problem.
Have you tried a different mem card and seeing if you still get the error. I think error 24 may be an electrical problem though
