major error with focusing mechanism(HVX)

my hvx is about 1,5 years old and recently it started doing weird thing. Here is a sample footage: www.fff.ee/hvx

Focus set to manual, but when i zoom to 70-80 and pull focus, it starts kind of breething and making scary noise in the body, and it wont stop, until i zoom in/out and pass that range(70-80). "breething" increases when i pan camera lens to ground.

Any ideas?

Take the camera in for service; looks like the servo mechanism/s are having a heart-attack.
