Minolta 300mm F2.8 (Older APO, not HS), Chip?? Some help please..

I just bought this dream lens as faulty (as pictured for £299), the lens problem described as not communicating with the camera. I justified buying it to use as manual.

Obviously I will try and clean the contacts first and see.

I understand the chip on these older versions is just to tell the camera what lens and has nothing to do with the focusing mechanism. Now if the assumption is correct, do you anyone (preferably in the UK) who can re-chip it safely? Or any other thoughts.

Your help is much appreciated
