resyncing a stale partition in AIX 4.3.3

i rec'd a stale partition notice on hdisk0 where the rootvg is located.  i believe the rootvg is mirrored on hdisk2.  how do i re-sync a mirrored partition in AIX 4.3.3? should i replace the drive? i got a message that stated that hdisk0 had some errors that must have made the stale partition error happen. i also have a drive that won't power up that i am replacing, but i think i need to address the rootvg issue first. here's some vg info from the machine.
thanks soooo much experts!!
