Switch your camera to Setup on the control **** located on the top.
Take out the memory stick and press the reset button located inside the battery compartment.
Now switch on the camera and insert the memory stick.
If you do not get the error go to the little toolbox on the menu. Select the format option and proceed through the warning messages. Remeber you will loose all data on the memory stick.
Things should now work. If not some simple thing that sound bezare but has worked for me is pushing the memory stick in and out before the camera displays the error. Do this several times until the camera actually reads the stick and them format the stick first chance you get.

That code means that the lens unit was unable to move from home position to switch on position.
These lens are extremely complex and I doubt if you could find someone able to repair the lens.
Therefore I suggest contacting Sony to find a accredited dealer to quote you on replacement of the lens.
My guess is it will cost half of what you originally paid for the camera.

Please take a look at the symptoms listed here, and see if it's what you're experiencing.
Sony had a certain issue with the CCD chip on this camera. If it's this issue, they'll fix it free plus $20 until March 2010.

sonyfsd is right.
In the UK the process was very painless for me a couple of months ago (Dec 2009). Using their online fault-reporting service, I was told to use the words "Known Fault" in the description of the problem. Freepost label and free return meant no charge to me whatsoever.
Only problem was Parcel Force who left the repaired camera, unsigned for, outside my house all day long. Anyone could have stolen it.
