The zoom is motor-driven, it's a power (low battery) problem.

Unless the camera has an electrical short that is causing the problem.

Strange - I'm sure I put in a "+1" before you lot.

If you're using rechargeable batteries, sometimes one can fail so that if you measure the off-load voltage it looks right, but that voltage will drop right down on load, such as using the zoom.
