Locked Zoom lever on Pentax X-5

For no apparent reason the zoom lever on my camera(Pentax X-5 Bridge) will not shift to tighten or widen the shot. It was working fine the time before last I used it and then I tried to photo something else it refused to budge. I have changed to fresh batteries in case that was an issue but there was no improvement. Any clues to what the problem is caused by and how to resolve it would be much appreciated.

If the button is physically damaged, you'd need to get it fixed. I can't think of any circumstances in which zooming might be disabled, but do try to reset the camera settings just in case.
