Question E3 F__ Error

I am new to the E3, having bought a second hand body back in July. I have an E400 so use the same lenses between cameras.

All was well until a few weeks ago, when I changed the lens on my E3. In a moment of absent mindedness, I forgot to turn the camera to off before removing the lens.

Since then, randomly, when I am taking a photo, I get the message of F__ where the F number should be shown, and the auto focus doesn't auto focus. I can switch it off & on again & then carry on taking pictures, everything then functions as normal.

I have changed batteries, also removed & refitted said lens, with the camera switched off, but am still getting the 'error code'.

Any ideas?
