Are you getting a specific error message?
Please let me know

There is no error message. It is a new 700d camera, but the lens is a few years old, and hasn`t been used for some time.

Thanks James
Remove the lens and make sure to clean all the connection points between the Lens and the camera.
Then fix it back on and tell me if the Lens operates.

Thank you; I have done that, but image-stabilisation still does not work.

Has it worked with this camera before James?
And is it only Image Stabilisation that is not working?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It is a new camera, and the lens has not been used previously on this camera; I have tried it on a 5D, and it doesn`t work on that either.

Thanks James.
The connection to the lens has then faulted or is being blocked.
These are pretty temperamental, and if you have ensured it is completely cleaned and there is nothing on the contacts, then its the Lens unit that has failed and you would need to have it replaced sorry.
