Repair of a DA55-300?


Today I got a defect DA55-300.

Camera is not recognizing it at all. That means:
- Manual choice of the focal length after switch on
- No F-Display
- No autofocus
--> Means AV-Mode only with open apperture and MF only

Does anybody have a Idea how it can be fixed (without spending money for a professional repair)

Have you tried cleaning the electrical contacts of the lens? And/or camera? Does it happen with other lenses?

All checked - I even disassembled the rear ring to confirm it is not just a simpel contact/dirt issue.
All other lens work fine and problem occurs on K7 and K01.

Your suspect had been my hope when I bought it.......
