Does that lens have an aperture ring? I see some had it and some didn't. If it has an aperture ring, make sure it is set to A. If it does not have an aperture ring or if it is already set to A, the contacts on the mount are probably dirty.

Based on the lens you said you're using, just click the aperture ring to the "A" setting and you should be fine.

edit: Looks like I was beat to the answer by a few seconds
