55-300mm VR malfunction + eclipse shots

Hi!

A few months ago I posted here asking whether the hand symbol that indicates that lens VR is on on my D5600 would appear when using my AP-S 55-300mm VR. Some of you said the hand symbol would appear only with the kit lens, since it has no physical VR ON/OFF switch. It turns out the hand symbol appears with any lens when VR is on. Last night I was shooting the lunar eclipse when I accidentally touched the VR button instead of the focus one and noticed the hand appeared for a brief moment on the screen. A few tests today revealed my 55-300mm has some kind of malfunction in the VR button and when the hand symbol appears on the screen I can hear a noise in the lens. Here's a video showing the malfunction and three shots I took from the eclipse.
