Zoom on handle not working

I'm curious if anyone else has had this happen to them? The zoom rocker on the handle is not working, but the zoom on the side grip works fine. I have it set to servo on the bottom so I know it's not because it's locked in manual mode. I hold my EX1 from the top handle 90% of the time (run and gun) so accessing the zoom from the side is not preferable for me. I just want to make sure I'm not missing something simple/stupid, which I'm prone to do, ha! Good gosh this camera is awesome!

I assume the lock switch on the side of the handle is set to L or H and not off.

BINGO!!! Good gosh, I told you I was prone to overlooking simple things, ha! I didn't even realize there was a side switch, I just knew about the bottom one. THANK YOU ALISTER! I'm so thankful I don't care about the embarrassment factor! :^D
