Hello, and thanks for your question!! sorry for the delay in responding to you. It has been very busy.

The error code you describe is for a non compatable lense (we know its not that since you have been using it) and also a damaged lense. There are small electrical contact points that may need cleaning. Remove the battery from the camera, remove and clean the lense contacts and reinstall the lense then the battery. If that does not help then I would replace the battery as it will start doing strange things with the camera when the voltage and milliamps drop. The camera will stop functioning right.

I hope this solves your issues. If so please click the green accept button, if not im still here to assist you.

Look forward to your reply,

Charles
