Solution for me: Strike the camera a few times. Error gone.
Seriously - I got this error on a very humid day. The error seems related to the lens moving mechanism. My V570 is 4 years old, not really worth the expense to fix. So .. a couple of hard smacks, and ... back to life.
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.
If it is under warranty i advice you give it for service as this is a pretty complicated procedure to get it fixed. This error is caused due to the failure of lens alignment system.Try following the procedure below.. it may be the lens contacts or grit in the gears open it up on
the side of the lens you will see a row of thin gold coloured contacts
that report the lens position back to the cpu sometimes these get dirty
or bent.on the side of the lens is a motor, look where the gear
meets the lens and use a pin to flip out any grit that is stuck in the
teeth. Its very unlikely the lens is "out of alignment" this just
cant happen unless its been dropped or bashed, in which case it may be
broken. Also i have heard some people bashing the camera a couple of times to get it working.. hold the camera and bash the edge next to the lens against the palm of
you hand as hard as you can, one I did have to get a little more
medieval on and bashed aginst a bit of carpet on the bench.. but it
worked... might be worth a go if the next step is the bin...
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.

I had the exact same problem; I had to send it in for repair. Evidently repair was expensive because Kodak sent me a brand new camera. If you are under warranty, you can do that; if not, it is probably going to be expensive.
