Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

How old is the camera? in months or years since you bought it.

Has the camera been dropped or otherwise subjected to mechanical shock(s) in its lifetime?
Has the camera been operated in or subjected to, temperatures below 32 degrees F (freezing point) or above about 100 degrees F ?
Has it ever been subjected to a humidity higher than 85 % ? or gotten wet?

Clearing of the screen of the camera, when zoom is maxed out / at maximum, and is reduced ('drawn back')... that could mean that you are using digital zoom, and the processing involved is too much for the camera.

Are you using digital zoom? if not... well, if not, then how old is the battery that you are using at present, in the camera? as old as the camera?

That the camera is the same make as one that previously had the same fault, shows that this model has a parallel tendency to the problem, not that you are inducing the problem somehow, I think. The fact that you have taken good care of your camera, also, attests to it being in all likelihood a problem with this model's manufacture.
