The focusing ring itself does not focus the lens. The ring sends signals to the camera body's electronics which themselves control the focusing motor in the lens.

I doubt that is easily repairable and the camera itself is discontinued meaning that those parts may or may not be available.

Right.. My understanding is that it is just a ring with an encoder that "talks" to the controller, which in turn tells the lens how far to step the actual focus.
