@jazzdog not sure if this is a question, statement or what. Is that the error code your camera displays?

If you didn't drop the camera, here's something that MIGHT work, but don't get your hopes up: With a fully charged battery in the camera go into your menus and select, "Lock Mirror Up for Cleaning". Per the instructions on the LCD, press the shutter button to raise the mirror. Wait a second then shut off the camera. Repeat these steps three, maybe five times, and see if it clears the error.
