infinite focus lost

I have problems focusing a FA 35-70 on my K-3. It doesn't focus on infinite. Problem occures on both manual and auto focus. It used to work perfectly. Is it a camera settings problem?
thanks

Is the lens in macro mode perhaps?

unbebeliavable... I had a close-up filter on it and I didn't remember. I realized it when I took it in my hand to do the work you, dc, suggested. Crazy...!
