Question about Kodak Cameras

V705 camera lens won't close. I had this problem a year ago and it was corrected by taking out the battery, doing something else that I don't remember.

Http://www.kodak.com/global/plugins/acrobat/en/service/manuals/urg00607/V705_GLB_en.pdf above is your user manual. This situation, will often respond to a Battery being taken out, or better being replaced, and then pressing a reset button, on other cameras perhaps yours is similar, i found you a user manual, hopefully that will help you. Sometimes though, this problem isn't a "Glitch" in fact it is a motor fault, or the driver to it, or the CPU brain that commands it. It ALWAYS pays to get new batteries too, if ever you have any problems, always start at the Power supply, in this case the batteries, even though sometimes they seem fine, they are not, and when another set is used, it works, I believe it has to do with the batteries "Internal resistance". If none of this works, then you should get it looked at by a professional, get in touch with Kodak, and inquire as to where you can get it serviced. If worried about costs etc, simply ask for a "Quote: before an work commences, that way you can make an informed decision as to repair or replace.

Hi,
1.Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth. Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries.
2.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
3.Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens.
4.Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.


Hope this helps .

You can try doing this steps in correcting the problem of your camera.

Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras.
Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup.
Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum

    Try this steps then:
    Try blowing lots of compressed air around the lens cover to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds
    Slide a thin strip of paper between the lens cover shutters and the outer support ring. Work it around 360 degres to clear out any debris that may be in there.
    With the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. Repeat the above three steps several times.

Error e45


Hi,

Kodak indicates that the e45 error means that it's time to repair your camera.

But, it could be that your battery no longer has the capacity to adequately power the camera, especially the lens function. Lithium Ion batteries lose capacity over time. If your battery is over 3 years old, a simply replacing the battery may solve the problem.

Error de camara numero E45 KODAK EASYSHARE V705


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.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

My Kodak Easyshare V705 won't turn on. Tried new battery and still nothing. The lens cover is also open. what could this mean?


Any error code there? Its possible that it's time to repair your camera. It's also indicative of a lens retraction. It could be that your battery is long in the tooth and doesn't have enough capacity anymore to adequately power the camera. Lithium Ion batteries do lose capacity over time and going on 3 years, a simple replacement of the battery could solve the issue.

I hope this helps to solve it; keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.

My Kodak V705 has Error #45 lcd cant come so that i can take pictures?says see user's guide what should i do?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The Actual reason stated my Kodak behind this error is the e45 error denotes that it's time to repair your camera. It's also indicative of a lens retraction. It could be that your battery is long in the tooth and doesn't have enough capacity anymore to adequately power the camera. Lithium Ion batteries do lose capacity over time and going on 3 years, a simple replacement of the battery could solve the issue.
Also try to turn off the Cam, remove the memory card/any accessory attached to the Cam, remove the battery, clean the contacts, then reinsert the battery and turn on the Cam. Absent that, a repair is required.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
