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.

Regards
Andrea

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: how to fix error E45 on a Kodak V570?

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 !!

I am getting an error E45 on my Kodak Easyshare camera.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

E45 error message sometimes means that the lens is misaligned, This error is also may be due to failure of the control system.
To solve this follow the given solution:
You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service center.
You must keep in mind that to open the camera without good experience is not recommended and might tamper the delicate unit so best option is to Contact Kodak to see if your camera is still under warranty, otherwise contact any Kodak Cameras service provider, your problem will be solved.

I hope this solution helps you

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.

Camera locked - camera error #E45


Hi

www.Kodak.com says:
"E45" appears on your camera's display when your camera requires service or repair.

I think it is a lens error. They have a page on www.kodak.com called Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair. This is for USA only.
See what they suggest.

I may be cheaper just to get a new camera.

Hope this helps.

Camera error # E45


Camera error # E45 may be caused by the shutter/lens mechanism failure. This needs the cameara to be sent to Kodak if you are to use your warranty but seeing you may be far off from where you bought it here is my suggested solution-: 1. Put the Camera on the AC Adapter and switch it on. This may solve your problem if not... 2. Slightly smack or tap the side of the camera or lens several times with your shoe or boot while switching it on . This may shake off the dirt stuck between the shutter mechanism and release your camera to work again. Do not smack or hit it on a very hard surface. Please advise me if this worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya.com for your requirements.
