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

Error message E45 comes up on camera - What can I do to fix it? Kodak easyshare V610. Message comes up when camera turned on. Batttery charged etc.


Is the lens extended? If so, try hitting the lens a couple of times with the palm of your hand and then turning off the camera. Turn it back on and let me know what happens. Sounds crazy I know, but those things are notorious for that error and that problem. You can also try taking out the SD card and see if the error goes away. Let me know what happens. Thanks.

ERROR CODE E45 pops up on start up. I have been


Hi,

E45 means the lens is jammed, tip so lens is facing down and shake to see if you can dislodge. Look between the lens and the body and see if you can see any dirt or sand..

As you have identified, the cost of repair is more than the value of the camera so you have nothing to lose from here...

Try and dislodge the lens, smack the camera into your hand to try and free up lens, wiggle the lens to try and free it up.

If no luck dismantle the camera and see if you can free up...
Unless the last option would be to throw it and purchase a new camera.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Camera lens wont open or close after being dropped. it won't turn on and take pictures


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Kodak DX6490 error E45


this is actually a known problem or defect with this camera. Sometimes, if you point this out to kodak, they will fix it. I would go to the kodak site and write to them about it, or if there is a number, call that number. This didn't happen to me, but I came across this information when researching a different problem with the same model camera. I wish I could point you to the exact info, but it was a while back. The forum that I was on...some people were able to get their camera fixed, even though it was past warranty, and some were not.

Guess what I tried banging the bottom of my CW330 camera, as suggested by Timewarped, and the lens retracted and the "Lens Error 25" cleared. I can't believe it, you saved me about $80 in repairs. Thanks
