Nikon 70-200 auto focus stopped working

Before I go sending this lens anywhere and get charged for a no warranty fix.  Anything you can think of worth checking?  Autofocus buttons are engaged, it's just not doing anything. 

Any ideas?

This.... also make sure the switches/toggles, etc are in correct position. Its often something simple.

Why so serious?

You should make it a regular habit to clean the contacts on all your lenses and where they met up to your camera.
