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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

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

Regards
Andrea

I have a NH TS110 giving E45 code, now won't move forward or reverse.


Error codes E38 through to E45 happen with either a short or open circuit in the wiring. You can use an ohm meter to test the wiring
back to the processor module. Locate the short/open circuit and repair or replace wiring as necessary.
If wiring is okay, disconnect the PWM solenoid from the harness and check that the resistance of the
PWM coil is approximately 10 ohms at 70°F. If not, replace the PWM solenoid.
If wiring and PWM solenoids are okay, replace the microprocessor with one of known performance.

I hope this helps.

Here is the link to download your manual.

The error code indicates that there is a stuck lens issue.

Check to see if any foriegn matter...i.e. dirt, has gotten into where the zoom lens opens out at. That is more than likely the point that is causing this error.

Getting an error code E 45


Hi,
Error 45 in your camera clearly indicates it is related to a lens issue. Something has caused the lens to jam or stop working. When it does you get the E45 error you have to update the firmware and the error should go away.
Thank you !!

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.

Kodak digital camera V705 -error 45


Hi!
E45 means that a focus error occurred or the MCU BOARD malfunctioned. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. It's a hardware problem. You should contact your local Kodak service center.

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.
