Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Camera locked - camera error #E45


Hi

www.Kodak.com says:
"E45" appears on your camera's display when your camera requires service or repair.

I think it is a lens error. They have a page on www.kodak.com called Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair. This is for USA only.
See what they suggest.

I may be cheaper just to get a new camera.

Hope this helps.

#e45 camera errot comes up on my v530 camera.


Hello.
Welcome to Fixya.

I have a Kodak CX6330 and I was getting error E45 as well - once the lens had gone out, it wouldn't go back in and close upon switching off the camera.

I opened up the camera (if you can't find a screwdriver tiny enough, use a simple utility knife! you can break off the tip a little bit and it fits) ..then I CLEANED the circular metal contact surface under the selection dial carefully.
ALSO, what I think was the main problem, was that one of the four contact plates (right underneath the selection dial), was bent backwards a bit. So I used a tiny pincette from a swiss pocket knife to fix it. And that was it, then I put the cover and batteries back, switched the camera on and it worked fine, no error E45 anymore, YAY!
That’s it from me, hope it works for you too.

greetings^^

Error E45


Turn your camera on and smack the camera against your hand. The E45 error means your lens is stuck. The lens on my V603 was stuck open, when I smacked it against my hand it closed and now works fine. Give that a shot.
