Hi everyone

I have this F-- error on my Nikon D50. I have been to several forums, where I have discovered that it's a problem of communication between the lens and camera body. I have cleaned the contacts on both sides - camera and lens - on several occasions, but unfortunately, this error has gone from intermittent to now being permanent.

I have been in contact with Nikon USA, who have advised me that service is required, and I should send the camera in. I'd like to know if anyone else has encountered this problem, and solved it without sending it away to Nikon. Unfortunately, sending it in will be a little difficult, as I'm located in Nigeria.

Could anyone advise me on how I could proceed?
