Err 01 and black spots on Review screen 6D

I recently went to Monument Valley on a workshop. Right before I left I started getting the err 01 msg about the lens connection with camera.
Now after I take a picture, my viewing screen will go back and forth making the sky, sun, any bright part black. I have not downloaded the pics yet to see but I believe it is only in the camera. I have 3 lenses the error was only happening with the 28-135mm, now all 3. HELP?! I would love to add a picture of my screen but don't think I can on the mobile app.

Do not use eraser; you could damage the gold plating. A lens cleaning microfer is all you should use, carefully.

You have blown the highlights. It is a feature of your camera. It is called highlight alert.

The blinkies are unrelated to your lens communication error.

 

Try gently wiping the contacts in the lens opening in the camera with a clean cloth and gently dpress them to make sure thay are all free to move.

ok, so what do I do about that? Is it an issue I have to send it to Canon to fix or can I do a hard reset?

If cleaning doesn't work and a hard reset doesn't solve communication issue then it would need Canon service. I am interpreting your post as all three lenses show the Err 01.

Yes, at first it was only the one but then my wide angle and now my 70-200mm is doing it also. That is why I think is it the camera itself. But will try cleaning all contacts.

 

I read somewhere to use an eraser on them, have you heard this? Of course making sure the camera body is in a position so as NOT to let debris fall inside.
