Re: Turned off camera, opened hatch to battery and memory...
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.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
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).
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.
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
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.

I LOOK FOR THE USER GUIDE IT WASN'T THERE...HOPE TO HEAR YOU SOON. THANKS
E45 error message sometimes means that the lens is misaligned, This error is also may be due to failure of the control system. To solve this follow the given solution: You can remove
battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens
hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being
struck. Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand
particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of
taking consensus with the service center. You must keep in mind that to open the camera without good experience is not recommended and might tamper the delicate unit so best option is to Contact
Kodak to see if your camera is still under warranty, otherwise contact
any Kodak Cameras service provider, your problem will be solved.
I hope this solution helps you Don't hesitate to let me know if you want any further assistance. Thank you for using FixYa!
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.
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 .
Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery Remove the memory card and the battery Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth Use the camera w/o the memory card If problem still persist call the Tech Number
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:
