Dead Lens?!?

Hi All,

Anyone got any experience with a dead Sony Fe mount lens?

I have a barely used Sony 100-400mm GM lens that suddenly decided to stop working.

When connected to the camera it simply doesn’t register it being here.

The f stop setting is blank (- -) and if release w/o lens setting is disabled camera won’t fire.

Focus ring naturally doesn’t do anything abd none of the side buttons appear to do anything.

Literally seems as if the lens has run out of batteries?!? (I know there are no batteries inside).

Short of sending it back to Sony for repair, any clever (unorthodox) ideas what can be done?



ps this actually happened twice, the 1st time it came back to life after a day, this time it’s been a few weeks and nothing has changed.
