SEL1635F28 not focusing outside on 35mm

Hello all!

I acquired a 16-35mm GM lens which is not focusing outside of 35mm. Neither in MF or AF. Does not appear to have ever been dropped and no water damage. AF/MF focus somewhat works at 35mm. At other focal lengths, like 16mm, MF will take the image from blurry to very blurry. Tried many different variations of AF/MF and cannot get it to work.

My questions to the community is, has anyone here had a similar issue with this lens and had it repaired? What was the issue? Bad sensor, bad flex cable, bad motor, motherboard, off tracks, misaligned? or could it just need to be recalibrated.

I did see a post here where someone had the same issue with the same lens but the only resolution was to "Send it in". Thats not an option for me at this time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
