Can't Focus on Infinity

Ok evryone so I went out to shoot for the dv challenge. And I had everything perfect. I had my adapter working perfectly and all my actors ready. Anywho so I managed to not fasten the adapter on properly and it fell off in the dirt :(. Anyway so I checked it and cleaned it and I was lucky becuase there were no scratches. But now all of a sudden I can focus on objects further than say 15 feet away. I tried twice putting it back together like I had it and i could not manage to focus farthre than 15ish feet. What could cause this?

Sounds like the GG plane has shifted, probably closer to the lens...be the first thing to check.
