It would cost more than a new, better camera would cost.  
I don't say that to be anything but helpful.  This camera model is 5 years old, a lifetime in digital camera terms.  It would take any experienced tech 3 or 4 hours to take care of this problem and at a bill rate of $60 - $80 an hour you are looking at something upwards or $200 to fix a camera that is probably worth less than $100.  
I use Nikon cameras myself (partly because I have a multi thousand dollar investment in lenses, but also because I prefer their ergonomics), but usually recommend Canon in the low end point and shoot category.  They have many, many good models that you can get for less than $200.  I suggest you use a site like dpreview.com to narrow down the choices and then buy from a reputable dealer like bhphotovideo.com, adorama.com or the like.  
I can help you choose a camera, or make detailed suggestions if you tell me what kind of camera you want (easiest vs more capable, size, what you want to do with it...)
Good luck.

Como corregir un errror E45 en una kodak V570


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.

Hello

Unfortunately a "camera error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

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.

Camera error # e45


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...
