Can't focus Sigma 105mm lens

Hi,

I just bought the Sigma 105mm for my Sony A7R3.

When I attached it to camera everything was fine.

It looks like I clicked the wrong button on the lens, but now I can't focus  not in manual or auto mode. The focus ring rotation doesn't help- focus is frozen on closest (1:1) position.

Thanks

Similar problem recently with my a7R3....my iso had shifted from Auto to something really low. I turned it off/on and reset my iso, focus area and it worked again.
