Nikon 600MM F/4 FLED showing F/0 om D5

So the other day I mounted my new 600 FLED to my Nikon D5 and it squared a few times and went away . I took it and shot about 25 shots on bald eagles and worked perfect and this afternoon all of a sudden the D5 is registering F/0 and the lens will not auto focus..

I removed camera body and cleaned the contacts with a eraser and a cleaning alcohol swab and still not registering.. I mount the lens to my D6 and the same thing showing F/0 on my D6.  The lens is in brand new unused condition and shot for the very first time on Saturday... I removed the battery for 15 minutes and tried again with no luck. I also checked to make sure its in Auto Focus on both the lens as well as the body..

Can someone possibly point me in the right direction on what I may be doing wrong..  The lens is not appearing to register with the Camera Body showing F/0...  Grrrrrrrrrrr!

Thanks you guys..
