This question already has an answer here:
I have the Canon EOS 70D with the standard 18-135 lens on it. The camera was working fine and I dropped the aperture down when taking a photo and the camera froze. I turned it off and when I turned it back on, I get the following message:
Err 01 - Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts.
I took the lens off and put it back on - no change.
I then cleaned the lens contacts - no change.
I tried a different lens incase it was the lens - no change.
I tried with a lens attached - same error coming up.
I can't access any menu options etc, as soon as I turn the camera on - this error comes up and I can't do anything on the camera.
Can someone tell me how to fix this issue as I have a shoot in around 5 hours and this has happened.
