Having problems with your Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens ?

F-- error displayed due to poor electrical connection (assumed)

\015 I noticed that when the F-- error is displayed on my D90, I am able to clear it by mildly wiggling the lens. I assume there is an intermittent electrical connection issue with the contacts between the lens and the D90 body.\015\012\015\012Suggestions? Others see this?\015

Answers :

Try cleaning the contacts on both the body and the lens with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.
