Sony bought-out Minolta so the CCD warranty service might be offered by Sony. Go to the link below and try to get them to cover the CCD warranty. Otherwise, Sony is the only source of repair since they're not selling any parts for it. http://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do
Replace the CCD. According to consumer reports, some manufacturers are extending their cameras' warranties because of the frequency of this failure. Check out this information describing consumer reports' information on the failure of the CCD. \015\012\015\012http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html\015\012\015\012Good luck,\015\012\015\012Myles
