Err 01 Communication between Camera & Lens is Faulty
cleaning the contacts did nothing for me. what ended up fixing it was turning the camera to AV mode and setting to the highest f value. (f22) and then taking a picture. after that i was able to change it to what ever and resume as normal. hoping i dont see that error again.

Where can I find out how to take apart a Sigma 150-600mm contemporary lens?
Taking it apart is not the problem - re-assembling it will be. Unless you have access to an optical laboratory, where laser instruments can measure the exact tolerances required, don't even think about it. You will be left with a pile of optical components, and a far higher repair bill than if you had just let the experts sort out the problem in the first place.
Sigma 70-300 F4-5.6 APO DG MACRO for Nikon AFD Focusing problem
had this lens for my Pentax and used it for more than 10 years without trouble.
Have you got the lock on? should be a little button on the side.
Has it been dropped, maybe damage to the threads inside.
If its still under warranty then take it to the place you bought it from with all its paper work and get it checked out.

My sigma 170-500mm used on canon takes one shot
I have this lens on my Pentax K3 and have never had a problem with it.
The sensor is in the camera body not the lens so look in your camera manual for how to clean that. There will be a command in the cameras menu, maybe in setup.
If that is not enough then go into the menu and lock the mirror up and clean out manually with a cotton bud with a drop of alcohol, methylated spirits. Be very gentle doing this.
Also clean the electrical contacts on lens mount, both lens and camera.
Test the camera now.
If it works then job done, if not then you have more serious problem and its time to take it to a camera repair tech.
Sigma EF-530 DG ST - not working, on test or camera all 6 LED lights displaying. Any thoughts?
I don’t usually play with flash that isn’t built in- I prefer natural light, but...if this were me I would: A) take very fine sandpaper and very lightly go one time over all contacts for the flash and camera. B) I would also see if my button batteries in my camera needed changing. As I remember they have something to do with recognizing lenses and flash attachments. C) I would also make sure the batteries in the flash, although changed, were making proper contact with the battery terminals and might also lightly sand those as well since the flash is little used.
I have a 28-200 sigma
If you take it to pieces, you will end up with a (hopefully complete) kit of parts which you will have to pay a repairer to re-assemble for you. Your choice.
