Please Check That The Lens Is Attached Correctly.

Apologies if this belongs in the 'Newbies' pile, but I did at least try searching the forum before writing this!

What I have are the following:

Zuiko Digital 40-150mm f/4 Four Thirds Mount.
Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f/3.5 Four Thirds Mount.
Panasonic Lumix G1 Body.
Valtrox JY-43F Four Thirds to Micro Four Thirds Adapter.
Generic Four Thirds to Micro Four Thirds Adapter.

My problem is that the 14-42mm lens generates the above error on my camera, irrespective of which adapter is in use and which body the lens is on.

The workshop say that as far as they can see the lens is working OK on the bench, but as soon as its connected to a camera body, this error appears.

The 40-150mm lens works with any combination of the above components with no problems, so I'm guessing that the issue is fairly minor.

Has anybody else faced a similar problem, and if so, how did you fix it?

Thanks for your time.

Mango B.
