FA 28-70 f/4 Difficulty Setting 28mm

My FA 28-70 f/4 lens has started showing 31mm FL (on the taken image info) when set to 28mm. If I physically hold the lens (rotated fully against the 28mm end) it does take the photo at 28mm FL.

Any suggestions as regards an adjustment/fix I can try.

(BTW it happens on my K-20d, K-x, and K-5.)
