45 1.8 af problem

I have an Oly 45 1.8 and I'm generally quite happy with it. I've used it for years an the results always amaze me for such a small an inexpensive lens.

Since a few years back, sometimes it would get stuck upon turning the camera on; a light (or medium 😁) tap on it and it would go back to normal.

That was with an e-m5 original, and i only used single af. Now i got a used e-m1 ii and cont. af is actually more than usable. But with this lens, and all the focus adjustments in cont. it gets stuck quite often, making it unusable or unreliable that way.

I don't have a service center close; what should i do? Any tips? Is it a known behavior?
