Not very helpful. You should at least tell people how to diagnose that it is indeed the the mount that is the problem and not the camera body, and where to get the replacement parts,

BTW, before I would try repairing the camera yourself or sending it out for repair there is a simple thing to try first, cleaning the contacts on camera body and back of lens. A simple back and forth wiping with a clean lintless cloth, like a microfiber lens cleaning cloth, often will solve the problem. Also gently rubbing the contacts with a clean pencil eraser can help, but these erasers can leave a thin oily film behind so wipe contacts afterwards. A tiny amount of zero residue contact cleaner on a cotton swab, just enough to dampen it, would work as well.
