Why is my Camera Flash Zoom stuck at 14mm? [Solved]

I am using a flash for DSLR, and am facing a zoom issue. It's stuck at 14mm and the M sign is blinking near the zoom button. I am not able to change the zoom.

Check that the diffusion panel is fully seated back into its slot.
Like the Canon flashes the YN-568EXII (or Godox Ving V850II ) is imitating, if the diffusion panel is pulled out, the flash sets itself to the widest zoom and ignores any attempts to set the zoom differently.

Solution works for:
Godox Ving V850II flash - Auto Zoom issue - locked at 14 mm - canon nikon sony pentex
Yongnuo YN-568EXII Flash - for canon nikon  sony dslr camera
and all other external flash

- Check the bounce card and wide angle diffuser that both slide into the flash. I bet they aren't fully back in place.

Sometimes the "worst" problems have the simplest fixes...
