Non-nikon service for D70?

Nikon will not touch my D70 to attempt a repair because it has been modified by for infrared photography. The problem is the infamous 'CHA' error--intermittent problem recognizing a properly formatted/seated CF card in the slot--the reason I replaced the D70 with a new model and then decided the 'spare" could be risked for IR conversion.

Does anyone know a non-Nikon service shop that would be capable of performing such a repair?

The issue predates the IR conversion and occurs with a wide variety of cards, different sizes/makes/models, and the cards are fine in the other camera.

I am loth to give up on the camera because I quite enjoy the IR results I'm now getting:
