I am facing a lot of issues in handling a correlated error in a CFA model between items within the same factor. Please help me, and tell me some techniques to handle the same.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Brown (2015) completely covers how to handle the correlated error. I also found an article I found that seems to give similar advice.

There are two ways to handle correlated errors during CFA:
1. Remove the lower factor loading item between the two.
2. Constrain the effects of correlated errors through co-variation between the two measurement errors.

There is one more approach for the same, i.e., to develop a second-order factor analysis.
