I have a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 camera. 70-300MM Quantaray

Customer Question

I have a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 camera. 70-300MM Quantaray lens
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Camera is 2 years old but issue is with the Quantaray lens. I get an error message that tells me to clean the lens contacts. Other lenses work perfectly.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I cleaned the contacts and have taken the camera and lens to a Best Buy store where a technician checked it out and determined that there is an internal problem with the lens electronics.
JA: The camera expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
