14-42 lens EZ ED MSC

The above lens is usually attached to my E-PL6 for snapshots when out and about walking etc.

This morning I found a problem with the lens. It has ceased to AF or MF ( by wire ) at the long end of the zoom but maybe D of F is making it look OK at shorter zooms.

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 ?
