I had HC40 for over 5 years and took numerous video with it. I never had a problem with it. I just had the same problem while in Orlando. I gave it a good wack with my plam in all 4 directions. It worked for me and the problem went away.

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling the camera to remove the lens assembly and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.
