Used FZ-1000 Optical Zoom only works in Auto mode (stills)

I almost pulled the trigger on a used FZ-1000 this weekend. Optical zoom worked great in the iAuto mode. However, as soon as I put ut ub any other mode - P, A, S, M, Video - the optical zoom would retract to 25mm and then optical zoom did not work. Any insight into what could be going on?

Any other advice on what to look out for when considering a used FZ-1000?

Thanks much!
