Recently my Nikon d3000 started the 'lens not attached' error. I have two lenses, neither of which work. I tried the lenses in another camera body, and they work fine. I have cleaned the contact points and tried reattaching the lens, making sure the lens is connected, and nothing works. Any other suggestions? The warranty ran out about a week prior to this happening.

The lenses did work on that body before though, right? –  rfusca Jul 31 '11 at 4:02
    
Sure did. They are both Nikon lenses. I've had the camera body and the two lenses since August '10. Just went out about a week or two ago, and I haven't been able to get them to work since, and the nearest camera shop is over an hour away. –  Auna Jul 31 '11 at 4:19
    
Did you clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera? –  Evan Krall Jul 31 '11 at 22:49
    
What are the lenses? If you are using lenses with aperture ring, make sure it is locked to the maximum value. –  drolex Aug 1 '11 at 9:50

Well, if you have already cleaned the contacts (how have you cleaned them? I would have adviced ethanol on a smooth and clean material...), you have almost no choice left: you need to bring your camera body and optics back to the shop you bought them to or to refer to the Nikon customers service. Sorry...

P.S. As the warranty period has ended just a week or two from now, I would try to have Nikon make a "commercial" effort for you. Indeed, the D3000 is not exactly a cheap device and you are a valuable customer. Moreover, Nikon, as a Japanese company, need nothing but loosing customers in the the current context. Try to phone their hotline and contact them on their website. –  Speredenn Jul 31 '11 at 22:21
