Crocus cloth is too abrasive and will remove the utlra thin gold plating that protects the contacts. Even a pensil eraser, which some use to clean battery contacts, is not a good idea either. Just some high concerntation alcohol (90-99%) on a cotton swab, or plastic-safe contact cleaner will work (you can find electrical cleaner such as CRC at your local auto parts store for real cheap. Just make sure it says plastic safe on it).

Your problem sounds more complicated though. Is the lens under warranty? If so, I would send it back.
