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.

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

Kodak v570 showing camere error 45 see user guide , need help pl


Error E45 is a lens stuck error and appears if there is an obstruction in the lens gears. The obstruction is usually just dust or something of the like and can be resolved by gently tapping on the camera lens with your hand. Here is a thread where I suggested the same and it seems to have worked for a lot of people

Worth a try before you send it in to Kodak for repair. Don't hit it too hard as the lens may break.

How to fix error E45 on a Kodak V570? my camera stop functioning and only "Camera error E45" on the screen, all buttons and do not respond, only on/off button is working.


Hi,

The bad news is that this error 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.

Thank you !!

Turn on camera get error B03


THe issue of the camera shutting down and the lens Extending is an internal malfunction. UNited Camera Repair has been able to fix this, at least for me, they did. They replaced the main board and the camera worked when I got it back. Otherwise, if you dont want to spend the money, try installing a new firm ware.....

I have the same problem with my Kodak - e45


It is basically a shutter/ lens error, and all I've heard is that it's expensive. Kodak says that it means the camera "requires repair." Most people seem to throw them out rather than repair them with this problem, but definitely call Kodak and at least get a price estimate.
From the kodak website
"This error message displays when your camera requires service or repair.

Use the Interactive Troubleshooting Guide in the U.S. and other countries where it is available, to initiate/complete your repair request online.
In countries where the Interactive Troubleshooting Guide is not available, visit the Eastman Kodak Company Worldwide Contacts Web site to locate your nearest repair center."

V570 Dual Lens, will not switch to ordinary lens.


Hi, My V570 works fine on widescreen lens (the default on startup) but when I zoom up to switch to the other lens it goes to a dark blank screen and will take a similarly dark blank picture. I can hear the zoom activating as I click it so I think that is ok. I opened the camera
