Camera repairs

So, I've got an Sony PMW-EX1r and it's been reasonably reliable up until yesterday when it said something on the screen which I can't remember E - and then a number so I switched it to the off position and tried to switch it back on again but the camera doesn't seem to want to turn back on again.
The lights on the SXS briefly flash before it takes the iris from wide open to closed to wide open again and then again and again.
Is there someone that services cameras like this or something?

After a few attempts since then it seems to have woken back up however I still think it could be worth having someone look at it.

I presume the cam's out of warranty, but regardless, the official service centres are more likely to be able to get parts and actually know what they're doing.
