HVX 200 Zoom problem

I'm using a Panasonic HVX 200 at work and the zoom on the camera won't reach 55mm. It will go from the most wide angle to around 20mm. Has anyone experienced this before or can anyone recommend a good repair shop for the camera?

There must be motor problem with the zoom lens then. If it is under warranty, send it back to Panny. Otherwise, someone from US can recommend a good repair shop then.

Thanks for your response TingSern. It may be a motor problem, but the zoom won't reach all the way to 55mm in manual zoom mode either. A repair shop is probably the best idea.

Absolutely. You definitely need to send it back to a repair shop then. Good luck then.
