I know this is an old thread, but the answer may help other experiencing the same problem.
Just posted this on the HTC forums relating to the HTC Deire, but should worrk for othe rhandsets too
RESET LIVE MAPS WALLPAPER ZOOM
The following can be done on a populated screen, but is easier to do this on an empty screen if possible.
= Double-Tap Screen (You know that tho', right?)
= Touch the screen with one finger/thumb, then quickly single-tap the screen.
Et voila, zoomed out!
May take a bit of practice as the 'Add To Home'
menu pops up if you press and hold the screen, but it does work if you do it correctly.
I actually just discovered this after messing around with the handset for a couple of days after having the same problem and couldn't find a solution anywhere.
