Question about Kodak EasyShare V603 Digital Camera
SOURCE: 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.

I was having the same problem. Every time I'd zoom the camera would shut off. This was puzzling because other than that, the camera worked fine. I'd had this camera for years and I really like it because it takes great pictures. I tried a new battery and the problem was instantly better. I looked at the gold contact pads on the old battery and noticed that they were black just in the spots that the camera touches them. I used an ink eraser (although any mildly abrasive eraser will work) to clean the contacts both on the battery and in the camera (be very careful not to leave tiny pieces of the eraser in the camera body). I don't have the problem with the camera, the new battery or old battery any more. It is important to keep in mind that zooming in and out takes the most amount of power. You've probably noticed that when your camera is low on power, if you zoom it will shut down. If you've got a voltmeter, test the battery. If it is old, it might be starting to fail. If you can't test it, it wouldn't hurt to clean the contacts or buy a cheap battery on e-bay. Hope this helps!
