That's odd. Perhaps something in your setup conflicts with it. It'd be
interesting to know what.

I've just tried and it works for me starting from zsh -f:
  zsh -f
  zmodload zsh/complist
  autoload -U compinit
  fpath+=( /path/where/you've/put/the/function )
  zstyle ':completion:*::::' completer _show_ambiguity _complete

  setopt noh<tab>

Do those steps work for you?

It isn't going to help if it doesn't work but I forgot the :q for
the last character of the prefix and it seems to be worth making the
pattern case-insensitive with (#i) as case-insensitive completion
matching is common:
