can't lock focus in live view

I don't usually use it but today I can't lock focus in live view. It tries to adjust but doesn't get sharp enough to lock focus.
It will fire the shutter in manual focus but not autofocus
BTW it does focus and fire with viewfinder mode

Any ideas much appreciated!

Thanks

Randy

Sigma 70-200 2.8. I am not sure what MFD but if you mean minimum focus distance I tried it at various distances

Thanks

Any idea if the older APO model can be updated as well? It also has inconsistent focus

Thanks

Sorry, no personal experience with that lens.
