Re: 14-42 lens EZ ED MSC

My 12-40 lens works properly on theE-PL6. The 14-42 has the same problems on my EM10 as the E-PL6.

I have cleaned the contacts on the 14-42 lens. I can see nothing amiss on the exterior of the lens.

I guess the lens is scrap because it is not worth paying a professional repairer to repair it.

But as a last resort has anyone any suggestions about how to bring it back to life please ?


Given you have tried all the usual fixes and Divine Intervention is unlikely in this instance, a sales listing on Ebay for "Spares Or Repair" may be preferable to simply throwing it in the rubbish bin.
