Thanks Abbott, I have the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II which is an EF L lens. I use Canon 6D and SL1 cameras, I have cleaned the contacts on lens, converter and both cameras to no avail.

It is about camera (6d), not lens + extender combination. See e.g. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3787861

I had the same issue when I tried that combination on my 700D. Strangely the Kenko Teleplus HD 1.4x DGX for Canon EOS EF/EF-s works on ALL my Canon lenses.  However this is not a recommendation as I'm not overly impressed with the speed/ease of focussing nor the final image results.
