Canon 17-85mm lens error message

pmcclure 4 11 United Kingdom

My lens recently locked and I was unable to zoom in or out. I found an excellent video online to fix the fault


Unfortunately I now have another fault on my lens. It works fine in the range 85- 35 but below that I get "Err 01 Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts".

I've done all that to no avail and realise its an internal fault.

Has anyone any idea as to what the problem is and how to fix it?

Thanks in anticipation
