the seller got back to me and said they will swap it out for another one and if the one they swap it for doesn't fit they will give me my money back. Can't complain about that so we shall see how it goes... going to send it back today.

Sounds similar to a problem I sometimes have with legacy adapters - if the adapter doesn't rotate into the fully locked position on the body, there isn't any image. Same effect as just pushing on the unlock button slightly. In my case, it isn't electrical at all, and is surprisingly common.

You should get something other than a black screen if you use just the adapter and no lens, which will confirm the problem more than using both together.

I will give that a try

Any news about it? Have you got the new one working? 'Cause I don't want to pay a three digit amount for the original...
