Can pinned units lay down cover fire?

Good question.. I am inclined to say no, as it needs aimed fire, and I visualise a pinned unit as heads down. If it is permitted, then half effect, so a squad fire at team effect.

According to the Errata pinned units can‘t lay down covering fire

There are a few other things that they can't do too.
IIRC can't throw grenades or use squad AT weapons.

There we go p 63
A Pinned Unit may not use any of its Section antitank weapons, rifle grenades or hand grenades.
A Pinned specialist anti‐tank Team or support Team, such as an anti‐tank gun firing A.P., may
still fire, but with a ‐2 on its “to hit” roll.

Playing the period rather than the rules would lead me not to let mine do that (nor use covering fire).
