I just got mine few days back, i enabled manual zoom and cannot get out of it.
(on the display top row "M" is displayed between "ETTL" & "ZOOM" and "auto zoom" icon is missing )
also in this state i should be able to change the zoom by + or - buttons but that also does not work.
auto zoom use to work @ the shop.and i use canon EOS 400D.i removed the batteries last night to check if it reset itself
You're gonna kick yourself, but here goes, you know that clear plastic wide beam shield on the front, make sure it's fully inserted or else the auto zoom won't work while it's in use, (or the flash thinks it's in use)
You can return to auto zoom by pressing the zoom button for a few seconds, untill the display flashes. When flashing, press the curved gray minus button untill you pass the 24 mm indication. That will get you out of the manual zoom settings and the M will disappear.

Start by pressing ZOOM (the center function key on the very top row of the keyboard, just below the display) and select 6:ZStandard. This will set the window range to the standard default. After that, you can either zoom in on an area of interest or press WINDOW (just to the left of the ZOOM key) and enter in the window range.
Blocking ICMP pings on a Zoom requires a few steps:

I have the same problem. I have no fix in rec mode but if it happens during playback; press menu and select the zoom options. You don't have to pick any but just keep the menu displayed on the screen. I do this while recording the tape to my DVD recorder and it solves the locked zoom problem. The menu display does not get recorded.
This zoom problem is a big pain. We should start a class action suit against Canon. It started within a year of ownership with mine. I bought a Panasonic recently and haven't looked back.
Panasonic doesn't have the slick Canon marketing/packaging but it is a much better machine.
