Re: Camera error # E45

Camera error # E45 may be caused by the shutter/lens mechanism failure. This needs the cameara to be sent to Kodak if you are to use your warranty but seeing you may be far off from where you bought it here is my suggested solution-: 1. Put the Camera on the AC Adapter and switch it on. This may solve your problem if not... 2. Slightly smack or tap the side of the camera or lens several times with your shoe or boot while switching it on . This may shake off the dirt stuck between the shutter mechanism and release your camera to work again. Do not smack or hit it on a very hard surface. Please advise me if this worked for you. Thanks for using for your requirements.

Error e45


Kodak indicates that the e45 error means that it's time to repair your camera.

But, it could be that your battery no longer has the capacity to adequately power the camera, especially the lens function. Lithium Ion batteries lose capacity over time. If your battery is over 3 years old, a simply replacing the battery may solve the problem.

Camera locked - camera error #E45

Hi 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 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.

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.
