    My Kodak Easyshare has had a dead battery for a while because I lost the charger.I got a new charger and charged the battery .Now The screen went all fuzzy and will no longer take any pics. The lense is stuck open and Error # E45 appears on the screen.

    My V570 did the same thing today...3 months outside the warranty. I was bummed when everything said I was out of luck because for real estate the is the best point and shoot out there. Anyway, it started acting up, I pulled the battery out and when I shut it off, the error code remained the next time I turned it on...here is the odd thing, when I removed the SD card and turned it on, it works fine. I'm going to have my camera guy play with this to see why since it could be a card thing or the whole sd slot thing but I'm excited there may yet be some life left in this puppy!

    I have the same problem.Will someone help?

  • Anonymous Apr 09, 2009

    I have the same problm where the lens if open won't shut and the camera completely freezes and takes no snaps...nor does it close. They have asked me to pay 15,000 post which they would replace the lens and check. If that doesn't work they would charge me more for replacing the motherboard to check.....I am not agreeable to pay almost the price of the camera to get ot corrected and then too when the error seems to a part and parcel of the Kodak product.....!!!

    I think some water was spilled on it..Same error came.. Couldn't do anything..
    While I searched Internet I tried to remove the battery but couldn't. After few minutes I tried again and Battery came out.. I think it is okay now. Perhaps it was stuck to save itself till water gets evaporated...

This problem is frequently due to weak/worn out batteries or corroded battery terminals inside the camera. If charging/replacing the batteries does not clear the problem, remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

    I also had the e45 error code in my V610 camera and the shutter was stuck open and would not close with pressing the on/off button. I cleaned the battery which was fully charged, replaced it and there was no change, opened the casing and found that a small round black rubber band which was supposed to be on one of the bumpers to stop the shutter had come off and was inhibiting the shutter cover from moving freely, also the little button piece that attaches the shutter cover to the camera popped off and we were able to re-install it by setting it back in place and applying a slight pressure to re-seat the little button. A bit risky but, it worked! YES!

The lens on my panasonic DMC-LS5 digital camera does not close when the camera is turned off


It sounds like it skipped some teeth on the gear. Just take it apart and sync it correctly. Or try pulling on it once it is out as far as it wants to go and force it the rest of the way until it slips back to the right position.

Stylus tough has a connection menu locked on screen and will not take pictures I connected it to computer and it still has the same problem


_1752.jpg
OK, I had the same problem with my 3000, I took it to the beach and after taking 3 pictures it showed the "NO CONNECTION" screen. I tried all of the "RESET" steps with no solution.
_1754.jpg
After a week I tried cleaning it and noticed that there was a small blue build up inside the USB port so I used a thin soft cloth and a really thin screwdriver to try and clean the port. I turned the camera on and I heard the shutter move and finally the camera worked fine. Also, I cleaned it while the camera was on and noticed that by moving the screwdriver the "no connection" screen would pop back up.

_1755.jpg
_1756.jpg
I realized that the seal must have been faulty and allowed the sea water to seep in just enough for the USB port to "short out" and make the camera think that there's a USB cable plugged in hence the shutter will not move when the NO CONNECTION screen pops up....
Now, I know this is probably not the best method, its the only way to do it with out having to pay for repairs or replacement. The warranty is voided because OLYMPUS can always say we were at fault for not ensuring the case was closed properly.

My pentax optio s10 does not retact lens


Most likely the small drive gear has skipped a tooth. If you turn the camera on and off you will here a high frequency "buzz" noise which is the small stepper motor trying to move the lense in and out.

If you don't hear this, then the stepper motor may have gone bad.

If you do here the buzz noise, try gently the tapping the extended lense on a rigid table top as this may re-align the small gear drive allowing the lense to retract.

I had this happen on mine and it works fine now.

Lens error causing camera to not work, HELP!!!


I just had the exact same problem on a friend's Exilim EX-Z75. Since it was useless as is, I was asked to investigate. It turned out to be a mechanical problem in the lense. I'm not too sure if it was a misalignment of the servo motor or if a gear popped out of a guide hole. In any case, if your lense goes in and out as it normally does, the problem is not in the main motor, but in a smaller internal secondary motor that adjusts the focus. Only try this if you are comfortable working with small tools and have plenty of patience. Took me about 3 hours start to finish. Warning: there is a capacitor that can hold a good enough charge to give you a jolt, possibly causing you to drop or damage the camera beyond repair, or short out your pacemaker. Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the circuit board and lense and display surfaces. Just in case you do get the camera working. Cycle the power button until the lense retracts completely. Remove the battery. Remove the case screws (6 on the bottom and 8 on the sides) and carefully remove from internal camera. The lense assembly is held in by some soft spongy spacers and a clip on the bottom corner of the lens compartment. Push the clip and the lense assembly should flip up revealing the back of the lense. Be careful to not put too much tension on the flexible circuit board. The CCD (that captures the picture) in the middle is held on by two screws. Remove that first letting it sit in the lense compartment. Then there is a circular plate that will reveal the focusing motor and gears. Remove the 6 screws and carefully remove the plate. There is a small motor and 3 gears that will be exposed. The center one might pop out. If it does, the small gear on the dual gear assembly faces down. You should be able to pick up the center focus unit high enough to make sure that the focus gears and rods are properly lined up in their guide holes and check to make sure none of them are stripped or out of alignment. The focus rods should be paralell to one another on the side of the focus unit. This is what I believe is causing the lense error problem. I would suggest after checking the alignment that you manually turn the gears so that the lens is all the way up. Turn the brass gear on the motor to make sure that all the gears are turning and moving the focus lense. If you think you have everything aligned properly, it's time to re-assemble the camera. Once you have the back plate and CCD put together, you could try to put the battery back and power up. If everything is ok, you should see a picture on the display and be able to take a picture. (Watch out for that capacitor.) If not, you might want to take it apart and recheck the alignment of the focus gears again. I had to do it twiceeven though it looked ok the first time. Remember, anything not lined up properly in there will cause the camera to malfunction. You should also have a greater appreciation for how sensitive a camera can be. DON'T DROP IT! Good Luck. Phil

Try ensuring the AF switch is set all the way (On camera AND lens). I had mine partially turned on once and it made a noise and wouldn't focus. I probably caused damage from it too (I pray I did not). But if that's not the problem, my best guess would be that your autofocus motor is shot. If that's the case, you can either put it in for repairs or switch to manual focus and focus everything manually (which isn't really too bad, is it?)

Lens jammed


The lens needs to be removed.  The camera case can be taken apart by using a small philips screw driver and a small flat head. Take the batteries out. Have a nice flat space to lay the screws out.  Pry out the little chrome piece with the UL sticker on it. (Carefully use the flat head). Start somewhere you will remember and begin to remove the screws going clockwise around the camera.  There is a screw under the rubber flap of the "3X" chrome cover.  The top of that must be pryed out and lifted up to remove. Take the back cover off. Lift out the top of the LCD screen and remove the 4 screws that hold it in. Start a new row of removed screws. The LCD ribbon can be removed by popping the white plastic clasp up. Next remove the menu pad ribbon from the board by lightly tugging on it. You should be able to remove the front cover by lifting it up to unhook it from the top power button strip. There are 2 screws that hold the top power strip in place. There is also a plastic hook on the front side. There are 6 screws holdong the board to the frame. A different size screw is located underneath the power strip ribbon. Loosen the 2 screws holding the flash.  THe white ribbon will be the flash ribbon and the gold one next to it will be the lens ribbon. NOTICE the lens ribbon must pass under the flash.  The side with the lens will have a small board that pushes into the main board.  To seperate it, gently pry it apart with a small flathead. There is a hidden screw for the board at the top where the end of the battery compartment. It needs to be removed before the board will come out. Once the board is out, there are three screws holding the lens in the case (they are black screws, not the chrome ones)  Once they are removed, the lense will fall out. There are 3 black screws holding the largest motor on the lens.  They are above the text "Sony Lens" remove those and the gears of the lense will be able to move freely. Twist the base to get the lense unstuck.

Clicking noise


Hi,I also experience this but it isn't a fault it is just the auto aperture!You will notice that as you move the camera around the noise kicks in as the light changes.

Hello This is a pretty usual type of problem. The lens assembly is composed of some lens and some servomotors that will move them around or focus them properly in order to get a sharp picture. This is a delicate part of any camera. Sometimes one of the small parts in the lens assembly get out from their positions and damages or jams other components there. Therefore when you start the camera it produces weird noises as it tries to extend the lens. A camera doesn't know where the lens are at the moment you start it. It will power up the motors for a small amount of time, as it knows that if the motor works for about 1-2 sec the lens should move and extend. If this doesn't happen the camera gets confused and gives you errors or makes strage noises as it powers on the motor but it can't move the lens because they got jamed or are fully extended. Only a service center can fix this because lens mechanisms are very fragile and require specialised hardware to be realigned or repaired. In your case it would be adviceable to ask them an estimate of the repair, for you to know if it's worth it. It can be a simple job like putting back the piece that got out of place, but also it can be a situation in wich the whole lens assembly must be changed because of extensive damage recieved when the motor forced the lens to extend. It is also a good thing to do, NOT to power on the camera anymore as it can damage itself furthermore. Sorry as I can't give you more detailed tips, this isn't the do-it-yourself type of repair, even the service centers are having problems with this repairs. Good luck however, maybe it's a simple thing.

spounds like theres a problem in the lens gearing system. if theres a jammed gear and you try to force it you WILL cause 3 times the damage to the mechanism.I fyou know how and only if you know how to dissassemble the front case as well as the lens cover then see if when yoiu loosen the drive motor if you can move the unit or lens assy. if you can then the gear system inside the motor its self is bad and the whole motor assy has to be replaced. if I were you I would contact number800-488-7669 and find out what they charge to repair the camera. Good Luck
