Scratch on Gold Contact


\015 I keep getting that error when taking photos, so I cleaned the gold contacts and while doing that I noticed a very light scratch on one of the contacts. Is there anyway to fix this or am I looking into buying a new lens?\015

Answers :

You can replace the contacts, but a light scratch would not cause a lens communication error. Using your fingernail, push all the contact pins in the mirror box in and out 5-6 times to break any corrossion between the pins and their ciruit board

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?


It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

I was shooting today and all of a sudden I got an error code 01, which says that the lens and camera aren't communicating and that I need to clean the lens contacts.

Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.
