Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. 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.

Regards
Andrea

Camera blanks out with message- error 45 and its not coming on


Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

Panasonic ES15 digital camera - battery problem


if you have a problem that your camera keeps shutting down even with seeming good batteries, the cause may be due to one of the following:

1. the obvious is that the AA batteries are depleated and need renwal.
ensure you use high power or rechargable batteries and ensure they are fully charged as low power will cause the camera to shutdown.

2. check your flash memory installed on your camera, sometimes the memory may make a problem that causes the camera to shutdown with a battery or some other message. Try removing your flash memory and use your camera without it, to see if this is the problem. if it is a flash memory problem, remove and save any wanted data from the flashcard and then format it, by right clicking on it when inserted in your computer card reader and pressing format, (admin rights needed on windows) after this, re-insert the card back in the camera and test.

3. if batteries are not high power such as alakaline or carbon batteries the camera will shut down stateing that you should use high power batteries.
most digital camera with foldaway lenses will shut down while still having some power left in the battery this is to ensure that the lens and data is stored properly to avoid damage.

V610 error 45 whatcan i do


i bought a kodak v610 a few years now- no problems until a week ago. while using the video it just blanked and said camera error see e#45 or something like that. it wouldnt shut down (the camera lens wouldnt close) so i had to remove the battery and such. anyways i checked the manual and did what they said- i erased all pics from the memory card. then i charged the battery. but the problem still persists. i tried taking a picture- it did 1 and then when i clicked review and back to camera it blanked again with the error. nothing is working. its just not coming on.

When trying to power up hear 3 beeps and camera turns off.


Make sure the batteries are good and in right. If it keeps doing it you might be having a problem with your lens opening up and staying open, I had a camera that did that to me, and the lens had been knock and wouldnt open properly, check that out. The lens was out of range from normal and would automatically shut down

Zoom error--again!


Try Fuji website for tech help - looks as if this needs some surgery. If it is a recent purchase they may fix it for nothing - depends where you are.

Try using a different Memory Card.
Then try takeing the batteries out overnight to let the camera reset.
Otherwise I dont have good news options. Sounds like It would be something internal that wouldnt be cost affective to fix.

Hope its the Memory Card,
Caleb

Camera shuts down when the flash is opened


the flash circuit of the camera is short. the moment you switch on the flash it drops the supply voltages of the battery. you have to show it to a repairer.

Turn on the camera, cover lens is closed even though i already pull it down


if you open up your casing you will find that almost dead center on the front PCB, just to the right of the battery at the top of the empty battery area there is a box. possibly with some plastic fragment that is broken off. if you touch inside this box w/ something conductive it will think the lens is open. You can either fix this area or permanently solder it so it thinks it is always open. You can still turn it off using the button on the side of the camera
