My zoom problem was a combination of the software and hardware when it came to the neutral position for the zoom slider. When the camera is first turned on, if the physical zoom slider (hardware) is in the neutral position (you are not touching it) the camera software does nothing, but if you are pushing the physical zoom slider when you turn on the camera, the software resets the "zero zoom" position into memory. The solution to my problem was to push and hold the physical zoom slider towards the wide position and the software realize reset the "zero zoom" neutral position. This may take a few tries to get it right (if you over compensate, do the opposite and push the slider towards "T" when you turn it on), but I hope this will solve your problem and save you a few bucks.

Zoom malfunction

I had exactly the same problem. You just need to smash once with your hand on the bottom of your camera (it looks that this works for all canon cameras).

Zoom problem

I have the same problem. I hoped it was down to the zoom button on the top of the camera. I dismantled it and eventually got to the button but couldn't find anything loose/damaged or needing cleaned.

Did you ever find a solution?

Zoom malfunction

the zoom control button is malfunctioning. try to clean the contact. check the resistant of the variable carbon. if it is not open, try to adjust the contact point away from the damaged area.
