My Canon 90-300mm lens having error :(

Arghhhh!!!!!!!!!! it really is frustrating. My beloved lens is having an error. I’ve been using this lens for about 1 year now. Most of my pictures taken using this lens. Haih~~

The error lens not communicating with camera. Error message 1″ appear every time I attach the lens to my camera body.  How to solve this error? Obviously, I would say by google the solution. After a series of googling, I found this one website containing tips on how to solve that error. As usual, there are lots and lots of tips & comment by other user. (Need to filter also. There are also some kutu that just give rubbish comments & tips)

**read, try, read, try, try, read, try, read, try…….

Yeayyyyyyyy😀 my lens is working now😀

Well, these are the top three tips:

I suggest wiping the contacts with a cloth lightly dampened (not wet) with rubbing alcohol and trying it again. Do NOT use an eraser, as that can abrade the plating on contacts.

That said, my first 40D body exhibited all sorts of random errors and erratic behavior and I wound up exchanging it. The replacement has been fine.

Turn the camera off, remove the lens, gently blow on the contacts (gold dots/dashes) on the lens and the camera, reinsert the lens, turn the camera on. Still the same error? Open the battery compartment and remove the battery (while the camera is on.) Wait a few minutes and reinsert the battery. Still the same error – ship it off to Canon for service.

It may be the lens. I had to return a 24-70L because it wouldn’t communicate. Same error. If you have a second lens you can test, i’d give that a shot first. Either way, probably need to have it replaced or repaired right away. That’s probably not something you want hanging over your head.
