I was taking pictures with my trusty camera until this morning when it just stopped working. I have no idea why. Having looked on the forum here I have checked and the camera will take pictures in MF but I would also like to work out why it won't in AF. There is no error message - just no noise, as if the camera can't focus, particularly on anything close up and then nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First check that the lens is firmly mounted. Remove lens and re-install.
Verify that you didn't accidently move AF/MF switch.

Thank you for coming back to me. I've removed and reattached the lens and checked that the switch is to AF but neither seems to be the problem.
Any other ideas?

Check the pogo pins in the camera body to see if any of them are stuck. You stated that you don't hear any noise from the lens when trying to AF. Maybe you have a bad connection between the lens and the camera.

After taking off the lens again and giving it a proper clean and seeing if there was anything inside (I'm not sure what the pogo pins are) but whatever I did it worked so thank you both so much for you help! I really appreciate it and you've saved the day as I'm off to a wedding this weekend.
Thanks again xxx
