I had the same problem. The lower lens wasnt working, but if i zoomed enough the screen would turn back on.. Heres what worked for me.. go into menu, select setup menu, then select digital zoom. and select "off" . now the botton lens should work. take a picture, and then go back into digital zoom menu and select on, and all the zoom views should work!

Is the lens extended? If so, try hitting the lens a couple of times with the palm of your hand and then turning off the camera. Turn it back on and let me know what happens. Sounds crazy I know, but those things are notorious for that error and that problem. You can also try taking out the SD card and see if the error goes away. Let me know what happens. Thanks.
problem seems to be with your lensguide
it is out of track so please follow the step below, Try
forcing the camera lensbut be
careful while doing this if something goes wrong your camera our lens can be
off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at
the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap
is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix.
- VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest.
You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering
the camera back on.
the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the
following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other
gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular
movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a
"click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
no luck then contact your Kodak service centre Thank You
hi, error #45 is the same with lens error and one of the lens unit is damage.your camera has two lens assy and the damage one is the lower part that always used. there'e only 2 possible way to work your camera 1.To adjust or clean the lens unit and the 2. To replace the whole assy.bring to service center and request first for estimate charge before you proceed to repair.
This means the lens alignment of your camera is messed up and it will take repair service to fix it. The cost of this might be equivalent to replacing the camera- Better to call KODAK and see what they're willing to do for you.
Not supported solution is to smack the side of the camera . That helped some people with the same error .
This is a lens fault.
This model is no onger repaired. If in warranty KODAK will exchange to a M420. If not in warranty you can chose the Trade up option where KODAK trades you old camera for a new camera for 25-60% cheaper than the listed price.
hi... The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.
I just repaired this problem on my daughter's camera today! I took out the 4 tiny screws that hold the front cover on and discovered gunk and goo that were keeping the lens from retracting. Please note the exact position of the screws. They are different sizes. I then very carefully cleaned all the residue using Q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. It worked perfectly! Just like new.
