Question about Cameras
Everytime i take a pic an error message pops up that says "communications between the camera and the lens is faulty. and to clean the lens contact. i cleaned the contact and it still doesnt work! also when i switch the button on auto focus it still says MF on the lcd:( please help i paid a lot of money for this camera:(
This is a generic answer:
Inside of most of the lens units, there is a servo amplifier that drives the motors for the lens operation. The servo control board is most likely defective or one of the ribbon assemblies that works with it is defective.
You would not be able to service this yourself. The lens will require factory service.
In the camera there is a communications circuit that is in the electronics. This can also give a fault condition that would give the same or a similiar type of error code.
Send both the camera and lens unit to have proper verification and service.
