SAL70200G2 won't focus up close, even manually...

I have a SAL70200G2 that has worked great for several years, but now it won't focus on closer objects.  I have tried several of my cameras (A99II, A77II) using auto-focus and manual modes.  I have tried the manual mode selection on the lens as well.  The focus ring can be rotated as normal (feels just fine) and you can see the difference on objects further away as the ring is rotated, but as it is focusing closer, at some point it just quits (way too early....) When using auto-focus, you can hear the internal engine running continuously.  It is getting worse, ie. for a day or so, it wouldn't focus on near objects then it would suddenly.  It is real bad now and rarely focuses at all on near objects.  Objects further away are no problem.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!
