Canon XH-A1 Zoom Problem

Hi there:

Anybody experienced any zoom problems with their XH-A1? Mine zooms in intermittently by itself. I'm not pressing the zoom handle or rocker, and there's no LANC controller attached. It just zooms in all the way by itself sometimes. Anybody has a solution to this?

Thanks.

Might be worth trying the reset button, but it sounds like it might be a defect in one of the zoom rockers.

It happened with the XM2 (GL2) - I thought it was just mine, but then I read on these boards that others had the same problem. I hope my XH-A1 doesn't go the same way. So far as I remember, it was easily correctable by Canon, the problem was to convince them that the fault occurred as it was intermittant.
