It turns out that if I turn the focus ring completely out of focus, then when I press the fire button the motor will turn it back into focus then fire. It seems like it only won't focus or fire when it is slightly out of focus.

the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog,
there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. --Winston Churchill, 1899
