70 200 vr playing up

My Nikon 70 200 2.8 vr had a outing yesterday and started playing up by refusing to AF. It did work sporadically ive tried and checked everything cant find any logical reason for it apart from it didnt like the look of my wife !!!!
Checked the switch on the front of the camera body before anyone askes. We went to the nearby wetlands and sat in the hide watching Herons swans and quite a few other birds one of which ive never seen before . When we got home it seemed to work ok again however about every tenth shot the AF gave up.

Dirty contacts? Worth a clean - I use an eraser (being careful not to get the bits in either camera or lens! )

I've had this with my 24-70 and found that it has a minute amount of play when it's locked to the mount. Adjust it's position and it works fine.
