SOURCE: Sigma 170-500mm APO lens on Nikon D50 won't autofocus or shoot

When you get a flashing EE, it means there is an Eror somewhere. Most cameras have a botton you press to reset it. Usually it is the battery check button. Try that. Also try taking the lens off the camera, unlocking the aperture ring, remount the lens and then lock the aprture ring to the minimum F stop. I think this should solve the problem.

SOURCE: trouble focusing with sigma 70-300 DL macro super lens

It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.

(From Sigma lens literature)
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.

SOURCE: auto focus not working

Your Sigma 28-300mm doesn't have a HSM-motor as far as i know. When you switch it from MF to AF, you also have to disengage the manual focusing ring by pulling it towards the camera, or pushing it away from the camera. Using the AF without unlocking the manual focusing ring may damage the AF motor. 
I hope this helps, 
/Chris

SOURCE: sigma 70-300 lens will not move in auto mode.

It's almost certainly got a stripped drive gear. This is not a DIY repair, but if the rest of the lens is in excellent condition and not more than around five years old then it's probably cost effective to get it repaired. Sigma are normally excellent at supplying spare parts for their lenses.

Get an estimate for the work from a photographic repair specialist but be prepared for at least a four to six week turnaround time as that's what I'm currently finding for good repair outlets on both sides of the Atlantic.

IN AUTO FOCUS FOCUS RING STICKS MAKES NOISE LIKE


How new is the lens? In or out of warranty? If out or warranty most likely solution is to find a Sigma authorized repair shop because your description sounds like the auto-focus motor gear has failed. If in warranty, check out Sigmaphoto.com for repair sites and also download the SIGMA_SERVICE_REQUEST.PDF. I've only had to deal with Sigma once on warranty matter and they were very helpful, provided UPS authorization for shipping on their nickel.
