Remove the lens and look for any signs of debris on the lens and camera contacts. Wipe anything away with a lens cloth.

Try another lens to see if the camera works with a different lens. Between the camera or the lens, one of them needs service.

You can try cleaning the contacts if it makes you feel good. I doubt it will help, it almost never does.

What is this? It sounds like your lens is broken and needs repair.  You did not mention any history except you didn't drop it.

Oh no...hope it gets fixed. Love the 70 - 200 - gives great shots and the auto focus is lightening fast......
