Zoom lever stopped working on Panasonic lumix DMC-FZ8

\015 The zoom lever on my camera has suddenly stopped working. It was not dropped etc, it just did not work one day. I use it regularly and it has always worked fine. When I turn the camera on the lens moves out into the correct position. When I push the zoom lever there is no sound at all. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.\015
