I have this problem with my Nikon 105 F2.8 Micro. I bought it used and sometimes it refuses to focus; until I twist the mount. I've cleaned the contacts and even sent it in for cleaning, calibration, and testing and there is still something going on with the mount. Once I twist the mount tighter, it works!

May be that why the lens was sold to you - used items sometimes hide unresolved problems that unscrupulous sellers offload to the the unsuspected buyers.

As for OP problem it was clearly an electrical contact issue - the fact that the lens already mounted doesn't mean that contacts are secure - it could be loosed due to handling or minor discrepancies - especially with third party lenses.
